Nie-fiksie / Non-fiction - Crime / Misdaad
As a child Amor van der Westhuyzen was physically, verbally and emotionally battered by her mother, Joey Haarhoff (paedophile Gert van Rooyen's girlfriend and accomplice) and sexually abused by her own father. She survived out of sheer willpower and tells her inspirational story to Carla van der Spuy. Carla is an award-winning freelance journalist and non-fiction author of Man or monster (2012) and Blood on her hands (2015). The latter was listed by BooksLive as one of 2015's 'most jaw-dropping' South African true crime books. Her uncomplicated, open-hearted conversations and her relaxed writing style translate to in-depth, real-life stories that will touch every reader's heart.
