Taking Back My Life Paperback – August, 1993
From Library Journal
Ziegenmeyer, angry and frustrated by the delayed trial of the man who raped her, responded to an appeal in 1989 by a Des Moines Register editor for rape victims to tell their stories. The resulting five-part feature was reprinted in national newspapers and Ziegenmeyer was interviewed on radio and television. This book, in the words of Ziegenmeyer and those around her, is an account of her progress from rape victim to survivor, to spokesperson and advocate for victims of violent crimes. She describes the rape, its psychological aftermath, the effect on her family and friends, her recovery, the trial, and her efforts to understand the complexities of the legal system. This autobiography of a courageous woman will have popular appeal.
