One Omaha winter day in 1978, when Debora Harding was just 14, she was abducted at knife-point, thrown into a van, assaulted, held for ransom, and left to die. But what if this wasn't the most traumatic, defining event in her childhood? Undertaking a radical project, Debora Harding dexterously shifts between the past and present to unravel her story. From the immediate aftermath to the possibility of restorative justice 20 years later, this title lays bare the social and political forces that act upon us after the experience of serious crime.
