Overview

"Revolving Doors" is an adult, autobiographical novel in which 'Richard', now over sixty, recalls incidents of his nightmarish first five years of childhood, while fostered through 17 residences as a ward of Toronto's "S.W.York Co. Children's Aid Society". From his perspective and understanding as a small child, he shares details of memories of unspeakably perverse mistreatment, including perpetual abuse, torture and even rape. After years of counselling and treatment for ensuing, debilitating mental illnesses, 'Richard' experienced a "black-out", resulting in the sudden awareness of long-buried, traumatic memories. The Author, Ms. Ketteringham, graphically details her brother's incredible victimization/survival story by interweaving his recollections, and relentless nightmares, with documentation from the organizations involved. It is "Richard's" most sincere desire that his story of ultimate survival might encourage similar abuse victims who may be searching for hope in facing and fighting their own demons.
