ONE HOUR IN PARIS – a True Story of Rape and Recovery


one hour in parisThe Toronto Star calls Canadian author Karyn Freedman’s brave and compelling account “an extraordinary new book”.  In this powerful memoir, the author travels back to a Paris night in 1990 when she was twenty-two and, in one violent hour, her life was changed forever by a brutal rape.

However, throughout the telling, Freedman takes you on an equally inspiring journey through suffering and recovery both personal and global — from an apartment in Paris and a French courtroom to a trauma center in Toronto and a rape clinic in Africa.  A moving and essential read in a world where as many as one in three women have been victims of sexual assault.
