The Rape Of Sita

Lindsey Collen

Sita is a strong woman, a living legend in Mauritian society. She has also buried a secret that threatens to overwhelm her very self. Raped by a ‘friend’ eight years before, Sita’s painful and angry search to come to terms with her past extends beyond her physical violation.
