Book Sypnosis

Electroshock therapy, child abuse and modern-day slavery… just another day in Christine’s life.

Take a heart-wrenching yet inspiring ride through one woman’s incredible journey that is so compelling that you are simultaneously trying to look away and unable to stop yourself from reading on.

Christine was born in Belgium, into a rich family. Her father is a wealthy, tyrannical man well known in the diamond business. At the age of just five, little Christine is cast aside, into a boarding school where she is ridiculed for two embarrassing problems. She grows up in a never-ending circle of traumatic experiences both in her boarding school and at home. It culminates into a falling out between father and child that was never fully mended, leading her into a world of promiscuity and alcohol, eventually landing her in a violent marriage.

Driven to the limits of misery and heartache, she creates a plan to escape her shattered world. Will her plan work?

No Fourth River is a profoundly moving true story that is hard to bear at times. It is a voice for all those courageous emotional and physical abuse victims who are ready to take charge of their future.

A story that asks: How do you find the strength, when you suffer almost unbearable abuse and are broken beyond repair, to pick up the pieces of a shattered life?
