When Angels Cry

When Angels Cry

By David O’Neill

Tells the story of one man’s descent into a living hell and nightmare that was initially triggered by his discovery that his father had been sexually abusing his daughter. The book then follows his nightmare through to some sort of recovery after years of torment for his daughter, family and himself.



David was forty-two years of age when his book was published. After a lengthy career in sales and marketing management the events depicted in When Angels Crybrought about a major shift in his priorities and he has worked in community services (mental health) for the past ten years.

When their daughter was just four years of age David and his wife became aware that his own father was molesting her. This led to the discovery of other young victims in his father’s past and so began a decade of torment involving police investigations, court cases and ongoing intra-familial difficulties. It also began David’s own decades-long battle with manic depression (bipolar disorder).
