Review

The book was superb, the insight unsettling and gift to the human spirit, priceless. I hope that your experience through your book can and will be used as a textbook for frightened and battered women, as well as men and children who have been subjected to similar events.
Jim Davis

"Started reading this the other night and I'm having a hard time putting it down. Great story of one amazing woman's triumph and empowerment after a brutal rape that was solved 20 years later. This book empowers women everywhere! Being a victim gives power to the criminal! This woman is no victim!" Shirli L

"Your story shows that the promises do come true .Thank you from my soul for writing it. Your story will help others through their own recovery." Paul K.


"Yes, I am so glad it was solved!!!! The book gives hope to others that have been in the same situation." Ellie M.

"I couldn't put it down! I'm still trying to process my thoughts and feelings - my head is spinning! "wow." Jackie W.

From the Author

For twenty-one years, I believed the man who raped me in my home in 1988 would remain a mystery. I never saw his face. There was not much evidence. Over the years, no one was arrested or charged with committing the crime. It didn't take long for me to believe that no one would ever be arrested. 

I wrote this story for all rape and sexual assault victims in the hope that the importance of reporting the crime is made clear. As survivors, we hold the key, the power, to stop rapists by reporting the crime and seeing it through to conviction. Nearly 70% of all rapes go unreported. We CAN make a difference. 

William Joseph Trice was free to continue his life of abuse and sexual assault for 21 years. He was arrested numerous times. He spent several months in jail for indecent exposure to a minor. It was not until after conviction in 2010 that he was linked to 2 more victims bringing the total of known victims to 4. Only he knew how many women should have their day in court.

I hope those who have a similar story, but have lost faith, will
once again believe that good does eventually triumph over evil and not give up
hope. This book is for those who have lost the ability to believe in themselves and the kindness of others, who doubt they are strong enough to reassemble their lives after a horrible encounter, and for those who have forgotten it's okay to stumble, forgive yourself, and get back to living.

Jennifer lives the nightmare that all women dread. She was attacked and raped. Terrified, because she has seen her attacker's face, she still reports the rape. It takes almost 20 years before a suspect is found. In that time she must learn to live again, to trust again and yes, to love again.

Terrifying. Should be required reading for all women AND men.

I cannot really understand the feelings and aftermath of such a violent crime. Jennifer is brave, forthright, and as fine a roll model of survival as one could find. This is a compelling story, and yes, it is exhaustive in detail and sometimes repetitive, but it tells a complete story that needs telling. It is not written to be a thriller, it is not pulp fiction; it is a twenty year legal and emotional battle fought daily, and without much hope. Yet she triumphs in spirit and finds resolution. The lesson learned for me is to never give up, continue to live your best life, and encourage anyone faced with this horrible ordeal to report the crime. Fight back. Thank you, Jennifer, for the good fight, and allowing us to follow your journey.

This was a book that I could not put down once I started reading it.. Where some reviewers did not like the detail in places, I thought it really helped to show how close this case came to never going to trial. After 20 years of no leads or success in finding the person who committed this terrible crime upon an overwhelmed female victim, justice won out with the follow up of a few dedicated people who would not let this cold case go away. I don't know where you can find a more personal story from a victim as written by the author. She really shared every emotional moment of her ordeal and I felt I was actually physically there in the courtroom with her.This was a great read and my wife will be reading it based on my enthusiastic endorsement.

This book is very inspiring, insightful and amazing. It had me on an emotional rollercoaster. I highly recommend this book to everyone, whether you've been in this situation or not. Jennifer is proof that you can overcome the horror of rape.

I have just finished reading this overly long book.(no spoilers here) Don't get me wrong, I love a long story but this one was dragged out. The story was about a cold case that got reactivated which was a fantstic thing in itself. At the beginning of the ebook I found the writing very good. However, the more I read the more I got a tad bored with the story. Probably not a nice thing to say about a lady that was raped. However, I really feel the book was overly long. The main author (Jennifer Wheatley Rolf) included many emails to her friends which I found boring to read and eventually skimmed over a lot of them. Too many day to day details which were not relevant to her story (IMO). Jennifer would tell her side of the story then we heard the same thing repeated by her legal people. A lot of doubling up. Maybe it was used as padding for the book, ditto for all the many emails. Virtually the whole transcript of the court proceedings were included also. Finally, I reached the end and rated the book only 3 stars. Jennifer lost two stars because of the length and things that got repeated too often. There was also some formatting problems, but I got used to those (there were many!) Jennifer obviously took a lot of time to write the book, I just wish she had excluded a lot of stuff that was tiresome to the reader. How many times did we hear about a relevant teeshirt? It went on and on. However, despite the lack of an editor the story itself was an interesting subject to read about. I just wish Jennifer had made it about a third shorter in length.

I knew a lot of the characters in this book and enjoyed "seeing" their faces as they spoke. The book held my attention until the end when a lot of time was spent on technical information and instructions given to the jury

I have very mixed feelings about this book. I have just finished reading it, and I am writing this review immediately so that my impressions are still fresh.

To begin with, the story is gripping, and is grippingly told for the most part. Yes, sometimes truth can be stranger than fiction.

To continue, the book could do with some serious editing. There is a floor map of the scene of the crime, and descriptions in the text of points A, B, C and so on. However, the floor map is not labeled to show where points A, B, C, etc., are located.

There are strange bits of additional text which are obviously mistakes that occurred somewhere in the process of writing and converting the book for Kindle publication, but were not edited out later.

Examples:
needed to be stopped. I suspected he *[...] [...] ncvc/ main.aspx?dbName = DocumentViewer& Document ID = 32369 had raped before, and I believed he was going to

and, again,

comment. I couldn't help but wonder if this was the woman I had mouthed, "Thank you!" to just a couple days ago. woman I had mouthed, "Thank you!" to just a couple days ago. 01-21 15: 29: 14

I also found that the book tended to ramble quite a bit, with lengthy descriptive passages that tend to get on your nerves a little bit, because otherwise the book is hard to put down. These passages have made the book much longer and less crisp than it could otherwise have been.

Summary: All said and done, definitely worth a read.
