PostSubject: Into The Light - Richard McCann   Sat May 19, 2007 10:08 pm

In this inspirational follow-up to the bestselling Just A Boy, Richard McCann recounts his mission to turn the pain of his past into a way of helping others.

Just A boy told the harrowing story of Richard’s neglected childhood at the hands of his abusive father, after his mother was murdered by the Yorkshire Ripper. The book’s success gave Richard the opportunity he needed to try to save his alcoholic sister, to recover from the past and to use his experiences to help others.

With his book in the bestseller charts, Richard met other children who lost parents to the Ripper and attended support groups for grieving families, some of whose remarkable stories are told here. Talking to them inspired him to go back to college and become the social worker his family never had – as well as enabling him to come to terms with the loss of his own childhood and finally lay his ghosts to rest.
