A Fight for Freedom is the harrowing story of what happens when one family gets caught between the various agencies concerned with child protection in the UK today. The odds are stacked against 'Antonia' right from the start. Growing up in dysfunctional, violent circumstances, but blessed with determination and a strong moral compass, Antonia is determined to make a success of life as a single parent. The narrative revolves around a single, fateful moment: an apparently casual admission by one of her children, thanks to the treachery of a supposed 'friend' of Antonia's, brings down upon her and her family the full, implacable, inflexible weight of the state. If the story is disturbing, it is, however, also an uplifting testimony to one young woman's courage, and her refusal to compromise where the interests of her children are concerned.

About Book

If you can imagine being in a prison only you can see, feel and describe, it's almost like you're on another dimension, only to one day wake and realise you are keeping that prison around you, with the actions you take, the words you use, the company you keep, and something a little more obvious, the personality you were, and ultimately only you hold the keys to your release date. How could she have known she had been conditioned to believe from a very young age that she was useless. When her autistic daughter is born and behaves in unique ways, misses milestones, of course she wouldn't believe her own instincts, not for fifteen years anyway. They say change is as good as a rest, follow Antonia on her own journey of troubles and coincidental problems, games of pass the buck and snakes and ladders her and her family have faced, with authorities, society, family and friends.
