IMPACT is a story about the lasting effect rape has on women, three women in particular. There's Marianne, who loses the baby she's carrying and is left barren because of the rape. There's Lisa, who runs away from home to escape a pedophile and is working toward a degree in journalism. Zoe is the wife of the rapist. Because of the rape, their lives become intertwined.
Although the individual stories are the thrust of the book, the development of their strengths and weaknesses makes each character come alive.
The purpose of this book is to bring a sense of satisfaction to the many women throughout the world who have been attacked, whether by family members or complete strangers. I believe IMPACT will have universal appeal to all women, even those who have never been physically abused.
