EXCLUSIVE: Audible has lined up a podcast on the story of Daisy, a transracial adoptee born from child rape on a mission to seek justice for a crime that shaped her existence.
Told in the first person, The Second Victim begins in 1970’s rural England, where Daisy is growing up in her adopted family home. Now part of a white family, and the only black child in her community, alienation and loss of identity overshadow her childhood.
After discovering she was conceived through the rape of her birth mother, Daisy begins a lifelong mission to find and prosecute her father. Across eight episodes, The Second Victim follows Daisy’s journey as she fights injustice – not just for her mother, but for herself and other children born under the same circumstances.
Daisy’s subsequent campaign for children conceived in rape was successful in January 2023 and Daisy’s Law is currently under consultation. I Am Ruth maker Me+You Productions is in the process of dramatizing her story for TV.
“Making The Second Victim has been a huge undertaking,” Daisy said. “To have the opportunity to reflect and recall my life experiences has been extremely painful at times, but it has also been a transformational process for me.”
