The Christina Noble Story

Book - 1994
Rate this:
Christina Noble, is a child of the Liberties, the notorious slums of Dublin. Her story is one of extraordinary bravery and resilience in the face of deprivation and abuse such as most of people could not imagine. Christina recalls a childhood in Ireland that barely merits the name; after her mother's death the family is split apart, their alcoholic father unable to care for them. Christina is sexually abused by her uncle and later escapes from an orphanage to become destitute on the streets of Dublin. At sixteen she is pulled into a car by four men and raped repeatedly. Later, driven to near insanity by overwork and a violent husband, she finds in a dream the will to fight back. Yet far from being a vision of luxury and self-indulgence, Christina's hope lies in a determination to work among the bui doi, the street children of Vietnam.
