An excerpt of Cora’s Story:
I listened as the family talked as they settled down for the night. I still lay on the bed, too frightened to relax and go to sleep. Just before dawn, I finally dozed.
The small table was not any match for his shove, and the door was opened before I could move. He was on top of me before I was fully awake. When he put his hand over my mouth, I bit him and pushed him to the floor. I had been sleeping with the butcher knife at my side, so I grabbed it as I stood up.
