Author Bill Lueders tells the story of Patty, a blind woman who was raped but had to fight for seven years to find justice. Local law enforcement in Madison, WI was so skeptical of her story that "she was charged witha crime for truthfully insisting that she was raped." Her story unfolds as a tale of her battle against society's reluctance to acknowledge her story, and of the justice system's refusal to admit it might have been wrong.
