Dubray Books are delighted to welcome one of the recipients of this year’s People of the Year Awards, Fiona Doyle, to our Bray branch this Saturday. Fiona will be signing copies of her newly published autobiography, Too Many Tears, in Dubray Books, Main Street, Bray Saturday 21st September at 2pm.
For as long as she can remember and well into her teens, Fiona Doyle's father sexually abused her. Her mother blamed Fiona for leading him on. The effects on her life were catastrophic. Fiona first reported her father to the authorities in early nineties but the police investigation went nowhere. She made a second complaint in 2010 and this time, it appeared, she would get justice. Her father, Patrick O'Brien, pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting his daughter and Fiona assumed the next time she came to court, he would be going to jail.
Instead, shockingly, having suspended nine years of a twelve-year sentence, the judge released O'Brien on bail. Three days later, following a national outcry and questions in parliament, the presiding judge expressed his 'profound regret' to Fiona Doyle and sent O'Brien to jail.
Too Many Tears is Fiona's story of abuse and its aftermath - the turmoil and isolation she experienced as a child and young girl, the devastating price she continued to pay in her adult life, and how finally she had the courage and tenacity to take on her father - and the authorities - to make him face up to what he had done. It is a moving, shocking and inspiring story of survival and hope against the odds.
Can’t be there? We would be happy to reserve a signed copy for you. Please contact your local branch or phone 01 2869370 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
