Eileen Ross's True Story of Blindness, Rape and Courage
by Eileen Ross
Alone and blind, Eileen Ross was awakened by an intruder who savagely beat, robbed and raped her. Determined to find and identify her attacker, she sparked the police investigation, found the so-called "Spider-Man," and won the heart of the public with her brave, open stance. Savage Shadows will help women find the courage to accuse, identify, and aid in the apprehension of their rapists. In addition, the book will also help families, lovers, and partners to understand the emotional repercussions and recuperation of women who have been attacked.
