This book was better than I expected and the way Webber deals with rape and the emotional toll it takes is fabulous. She does a good job of showing the emotional toll on the woman and those who love her. Although this is a heavy subject matter the story doesn't feel heavy. As well as a story of survival it is also a story of taking back your power and learning who you are.
