A very emotional account... Aug 4, 2005
This story will not only appeal to victims of rape but to anyone who is concerned with women's abuse issues. This intense intimate account drew me in very quickly and gave me a clear picture of the inner thoughts and haunting memories which plague a victim of abuse. It felt as if I was reading Elize's private diary.
