What makes this book particularly impressive is the fact that Taylor shares intimate personal experiences with professional pacing, making the book impossible to put down. Though, as with most self-published books, a copy editor's touch would have been welcome, the book is free of structural flaws. Indeed, it moves like a crime novel, each chapter propelling you to the next.
The book would be a comforting companion to anyone who's been through the devastating violation of rape. But as a heartfelt human story it has the power to engage us all, and perhaps leave us a bit more compassionate to our fellow life travellers.
Beautifully written in such a way that it feels like a friend telling you their life story. I was moved to tears more than once, both sad and happy.
The author is a survivor, though not without her desperately dark times, something she is completely honest about throughout.
I'm luckily able to say I've never experienced such trauma, but I still feel this was an important book for me to read as a woman.
This is an important book for everyone to read, male or female, survivor or not. Five stars.
The author's honest, matter of fact style of writing & the need to know how things turned out, kept me entranced. You'll be rooting for her from beginning to end.
It opened my eyes to many things, highlighted weaknesses in the system of dealing with rape & made me very much more aware & sensitive about the subject than I was before. It was educational in that sense, but not in a preachy way. Far from it. The author is a plucky person & her honest account covered everything, but she is never self pitying & doesn't dwell on the negative.
It's hard to do the book justice in a short review but, in a nutshell, I'm glad I read it & I can thoroughly recommend you read it too.
Just buy it.
Right from the very start It hit me in the stomach with a knot of anxiety as I felt the rawness of realisation coming to the fore throughout the story.
Its not a story though, it's an account of an experience that I would never want to encounter but I know now that the human spirit can come through.
An excellent read and highly recommended.
I use Twitter, and saw parts of Sharon's story unfold, even though I didn't know her. I started to read Sharon's posts, because she came across as a humorous, intelligent and strong lady. And this is reflected in her writing of this book. I felt like I was being intrusive, as things unfolded on Twitter, but after reading this book, I can see how it helped to tell people her story. I really am glad I read this. I find myself questioning, how would I have acted if I were in her husbands position, thought provoking on many levels. I thoroughly reccomend this book, it was an inspiration to me, I'm sure it will be to others.

A survivor, not a victim. A reflection on coming to terms with rape, and the far-reaching impacts of rape. Painfully, brutally, beautifully honest. Read morePublished on 21 Dec. 2011 by Gaia
