"She survived an evil, gruesome attack. Her partner did not. An account of a victim, a widow, telling her story on the witness stand."

I read this story when it was first published last year. This story of a survivor speaking up, publicly and at great risk to herself, to put her and her partner’s attackerĀ behind bars is incredibly powerful.

Trigger warning: This story contains graphic descriptions of sexual and physical violence.
