LUCKY BY ALICE SEBOLD ONLINE FREE PDF

Sebold fulfills a promise that she made to herself in the very tunnel where she was raped: someday she would write a book about her experience. The same young woman who sets her sights on becoming an Ethel Merman-style diva one day despite her braces, bad complexion, and extra weight encounters what is still thought of today as the crime from which no woman can ever really recover. Her case, placed in the inactive file, is miraculously opened again six months later when she sees her rapist on the street. This begins the long road to what dominates these pages: the struggle for triumph and understanding — in the courtroom and outside in the world.
