The Throwaway Boy

Hardback
In 1997, Alix Chapel's world was to change forever when her husband Billy suffered a mental breakdown. After ten years of marriage, Billy's breakdown forced him - and Alex - to face up to the truth of his tormented childhood.Unbeknown to Alix, Billy had been living with a terrible burden: he was ruthlessly and shockingly abused as a child, and he had carried the mental scars into adulthood. When it all became too much for him, Alix, his devoted and loving wife, stood by him and helped him to work through the pain and begin the healing.
