Crash into Me: A Survivor's Search for Justice. by

"In September 2005, Liz Seccuro received an apology letter from the man who had raped her twenty-two years earlier. The rape, which occurred when she was a freshman at the University of Virginia, was reported to the campus police, but their inquiry led nowhere. The man accused of raping her left the university soon after, and Seccuro tried to put the incident behind her, but like all survivors of trauma, the memory was never far from the surface. The letter brought it all back. Seccuro began an e-mail correspondence with her rapist to try to understand what happened, and why. Then she found the courage to do what should have been done all those years earlier--prosecute him. But once proceedings began, she found that what she thought occurred at that frat party was only the tip of the iceberg."
