"On December 22, 1962, Karen Dern is a pretty Cornell undergraduate with everything to look forward to: marriage to her college boyfriend, children, a good life. But her dreams come to an abrupt end late that night when she innocently allows a charming Harvard law student named Bob to escort her home from a friend's Christmas party. Everyone sees them leave together. Nobody sees him rape her." "An arrogant man from a wealthy and powerful family, Bob claims the sex was consensual and flatly denies brutalizing her, beating her to unconsciousness, and leaving her for dead. In the end, it's Karen's word against his and there is no legal resolution. He goes free, and she becomes a prisoner, trapped by rage, fear, and shame." "Until Karen Dern does what most victims never do. Gets even." "This engrossing novel - told with gripping intensity - follows Karen from her physical recovery through three decades of nightmares, secrets, loneliness, and lies. It also follows the successful career of Robert Drayton Willmont, the man who raped her - a man who, in the 1990s, is getting ready to become America's next president...unless America hears the truth."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
