Reviewing Finding Me by Michele Knight

3 years ago

 I just finished reading Michele Knight's book , Finding Me, about her survival from 11 years of rape and torture in captivity. Her voice is very direct and clear. She descibes her abuse but leaves some things private, which I applaud her for doing.  She lets us know some of how she struggled and survived. Her abuse was horrendous beyond imagining. She needed to tell her story and I am glad she did. Her determination to live was heroic. She has all my admiration and support. At first, I was concerned that she has apparently had no therapy work on her torment. I am a survivor of rape and torture as a child, and I needed years of therapy to get free. But she seems to have found her own path for now. My therapy was extremely painful as well as healing. She has spent 11 of her years in pain. I really get that she wants to move on now. I think she has been and will be a strong force for healing.
