~ Her alcoholic mother abandoned her and her alcoholic grandmother ignored her. Neglected and lonely, Buttercup was hungry for love and acceptance. This led to addictions, years of abuse and exploitation, and being sold as a sex-slave by the man who had forced her to marry him.
Buttercup had just escaped from working as a �sex-machine� when she was ensnared by yet another pimp. Soon he got out of trading sex and drugs, but she was locked in because of her drug addiction. It was not until she had a stroke that she discovered true freedom and found the love she had longed for.
