Summary

When two police officers arrived out of the blue at Paul Connolly's door, he learned the shocking news that, out of the eight children with whom he had grown up in care, only two were still alive. The revelation unearthed painful memories of a childhood that, until this point, Paul had tried desperately to put behind him.

Against All Odds Summary

Against All Odds: Abandoned as a Baby, Survivor of the Most Brutal Care System. This is the Story of How I Fought Back by Paul Connolly

Abandoned at two weeks old, Paul came of age in the infamous St Leonard's Children's Home in East London. The children there were routinely abused, often over the course of many years. All were underfed and unloved and told that they would amount to nothing. Angry and frustrated, Paul channelled his rage into boxing - but when an accident shattered his ambition to turn professional, he found his true calling and became a successful trainer, even working as a consultant on the pilots for a top model's fitness video. Paul has now finally found peace and fulfilment beyond anything he could have imagined all those years ago: he is happily married with two children and, through his work, he helps to heal broken bodies, build confidence and transform lives. But he will never forget his past and the unnecessary victims of a broken society...
