Rose’s Tale: The Strap – The Wooden Compass – The Endless Abuse at School
With her mother’s permission, Author Gaynor Jones shares Rose’s Tale. Born in England in 1943, during a time of turmoil, poverty and pain. Rose had a relatively normal childhood until she entered Grade Two. Her physical and verbal abuse began at the hands of her teachers. She was a cruel and ill-tempered woman who focused her abuse on Rose. Her only reprieve was summer vacation.
As the abuse continues throughout her school years, Rose becomes a sad and sullen child. It isn’t until she meets Glynn that her life changes and happiness begins.
This is Rose’s Tale as told by Gaynor, her daughter.
