Woman & Home UGLY is the life story of Constance Briscoe.

From the Number One Bestsellign author of UGLY Despite her mother's constant physical and psychological abuse, Constance Briscoe has gained a place at Newcastle University to study law - a long-held ambition.

  • This is the most amazing account of how to beat the system of bullying and child abuse, and nastiness in its extreme. Not a happy story, but it was peppered with more great outcomes than let downs. Clarence's ability to always face her demons, and then find a positive way to overcome the tragic sadness that accompanies such a life, as overwhelming in this story. Every time her mother hurt her, physically or mentally, she went on to do something positive. This has been a real eyeopener for me. We all cry foul so easily, and how easy would this have been for 'Clearie' as well. But no, she excelled at school she worked up to 3 jobs once. She 'smiled' through adversity while working at Rosie's, I could go on and on. There were two accounts that had me laughing out loud - her morning in church with Aunt Ina and the time when she fought Eastman by jumping on his back. She wrote these two scenes will great hilarity. I am now reading the sequel, Beyond Ugly, and thoroughly enjoying this too. Must read! and appreciate what you have, and that you don't have to spend the rest of your life wishing you had your mother's love. This broke my heart.

  • I gave this book five stars because it held my interest from beginning to the end. The descriptions of the abuse are quite harrowing as to almost be unbelievable. The book is more than a bit depressing but it had a satisfactory ending. I would recommend this book to those who like inspirational memoirs.

  • Powerful. Sad. Overall a great read, was recommended to me by a friend.
    We never know how deep the scars of childhood are. Must be careful how we treat people through word and action.

  • I had read the earlier version, and am glad that the newer version has an addendum which is very interesting.
