Now, for the first time, the three surviving Dionne quintuplets tell their story--from their bizarre, socially isolated childhood, to the physical and sexual abuse they suffered at the hands of their parents, to their inspiring triumph over their difficulties. Includes never-before-published photos."---"They grew up in the public eye, phenomenons from their birth. But for the Dionne quintuplets, the spotlight was anything but beneficial. Paraded about like circus freaks, they were socially isolated, victims to the sexual and physical abuse of their parents. Family Secrets is a memoir from the three surviving children: Annette, Cecile and Yvonne. While it details their tragic past, it also tells of their inspiring triumph over their difficulties and the recent apology from the Ontario government for having put the quintuplets through so much agony. This is a piece of Canadian history told by the people who made it, even if history wasn't all that it was cracked up to be"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
