Though I grew a little tired of overly-long chapters and analysis I never for a moment thought that the author didn't have something to say, something important to say, and that she said it well. The story which anchors this book could be debated for years. It's incredibly sad for all involved though the author does reclaim her power and you can feel it. One point to add: after her victim statement was published one of the many letters she received was from Joe Biden (while he was VP). I cannot recall his exact words, but something to the effect of "you are seen, I hear you" was written. Can you imagine either our current President penning that to the author had her story come out now? He was a good man before he was running for anything. This is a good, thought-provoking book.
