Description

Drama and tragedy have pursued Nancye O'Reilly throughout her life. Adopted as a baby and sexually abused from a young age, in 1980 she discovered her daughter Alicia had been raped and murdered in her own home overnight. The event changed her life forever. She set out to discover the truth of her daughter's death, but in a famous unsolved case, has never had the satisfaction of finding closure. In 1987 her older daughter Juliet was killed in a car crash, and two years later a third daughter died a few hours after birth. Such tragedies would have destroyed a lesser woman, but Nancye O'Reilly took control of her life and has since made some tough decisions to improve her lot and that of her two sons. Through her extraordinary experiences, she is now making a unique contribution in her work as a counsellor of violent men. Broken Angels is a remarkably positive and uplifting story of a woman of great spirit who has triumphed powerfully over adversity.
