Synopsis

Say Nothing is the moving true story of four neglected siblings who were taken into care following the breakdown of their parents' marriage. Sent to a small croft in the north-east of Scotland, they endured an onslaught of physical and mental abuse at the hands of an elderly, inexperienced foster mother.

For ten years the children's cries for help were ignored and misunderstood in the naive social-work climate of the late 1950s, and this heartbreaking personal account of cruelty and neglect reveals the effect this maltreatment had on their ability to adjust to a normal adult life.

Say Nothing was written as a voice of support for all abused children who are afraid or were never given the chance to tell their story.

It is unbelievable how 'Auntie' was able to abuse these children over and over for so many years and never stand accountable to any one. Shame on the foster care system back then!
