Book Description

Dubbed the “Sweetheart Rapist,” Aaron Goddard terrorized and raped more than a dozen women in northern California in the 1980s before authorities caught him. The attacks struck fear into the hearts of lovers everywhere as he targeted isolated spots where couples went to be alone. With a ski mask and a gun, the Sweetheart Rapist ordered men into the trunks of cars to listen helplessly while he raped their female partners, usually petite blonds.
The Knowing: Awake in the Dark is the true story of a young woman's love for a man who becomes a notorious serial rapist. Her unique, clairvoyant gifts warn her that he is a violent predator. Journey with her as she struggles to find her own self-worth, dignity, and love amidst deception and self-doubt, and learn how to use the power of intuition and conscious intent in your own life.

A courageous story of one woman's journey from hell to healing and the intuitive gifts she discovers along the way.-Sunny Dawn Johnston, Author of Invoking The Archangels - A Nine-Step Process to Healing Your Body, Mind, and Soul

"Nita Lapinski has written a powerful story. The Knowing is raw and gripping. It is a book for our great era because it asks us all to see through the veil of pain and struggle to reveal our true gifts. Ms. Lapinski weaves a tale so compelling and honest that readers will identify with the struggle immediately. Ultimately, it is a story of liberation, healing and joy. What an honor to welcome Nita Lapinski into the fresh tribe of world-changing authors now coming forward to share their work" -Jacob Nordby, Speaker & Author of The Divine Arsonist: A Tale of Awakening

5.0 out of 5 stars Brave and Inspirational December 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Knowing: Awake in the Dark
This is an inspirational story of one woman's journey in overcoming great adversity, which leads to self discovery, recognition and acceptance of her talents, and growth into her true self. But it is more than that... Not just a self-help book or a memoir, this book is also a gripping story written in style that holds the readers attention all the way to the end. Through the descriptive writing, the author makes us feel like we are there with her, seeing and feeling what she experiences. I truly enjoyed reading this book and found it very inspiring. I am in awe of Ms. Lapinski's bravery in writing and publishing her incredible true story.

Format:Kindle Edition
I read this book from beginning to end in one sitting. The root of all life-taking energies is the idea that somehow we are not worthy of the best life has to offer. Such is the case of the protagonist in this thinly veiled memoir written in novel form. In The Knowing, the main character moves rapidly through a seriously dysfuntional childhood and young adult life, one that is filled with abuse at every imaginable level. All the while, this young woman's intuitive gifts, albeit untapped, keep her from irrevocable harm. The Knowing is a story that is at once, profoundly moving, provocative, and viseral. This one-of-a-kind book taps into the reader's very heart and soul on a level rarely encountered, and is a thriller besides . . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rarity November 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
With the spirituality of Paulo Coelho, the suspense of Stephen King, and the lyricism of Isabel Allende, Lapinski's book represents an altogether new genre. You must experience the story to understand its impact. Quite simply, it will transform the way you think about your place in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening! November 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I feel as though this book provides insight into the areas of ourselves that are the most important for us to explore, yet for so many superficial reasons we are kept from doing so. This book is a must-read for anyone looking to work on themselves.

1.0 out of 5 stars To versus too January 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Slow and reads just like a romance novel. The weak girl with over caring bad boy. Instantly turned off with the incorrect use of too rather than to. Couldn't finish the book due to the same story line that follows the hype of Twilight.
