Indescribable - It's Easy to Keep a Bad Secret (ePub) | Autobiography

Candice Derman


From the age of eight Candice Derman locked away her secret and lived two lives. The darkness spread but she learned how to live with it. She grew up never knowing if she would ever be able to love all of herself. She became a normal, not normal child and her secret lay hidden inside her for many years. One day it escaped and she became hungry to find happiness.

“Abuse is like an unnatural disaster: everything that is lost must be re-built and I have had to re-build all of me. This book is part of that journey and is the story I thought I would never tell,” says Derman.

A deeply moving true story of pain, courage and love.

“I had to stop and say a prayer for all those voiceless young girls. Candice is a brilliant narrator and throughout the book demonstrates an amazing inner strength.”
 Dorah Sitole, former editor: True Love magazine

“I could not put it down. Sometimes I forgot to breathe. Disturbing, exposing, beautifully written. A book that was aching to be written.”
 Melinda Ferguson, author: Smacked and Hooked
