Description

At lunchtime on Thursday, 6 March 1986, Jill Saward was viciously raped in her own home. Her father, the Reverend Michael Saward, Vicar of St Mary's, Ealing, and her boyfriend, David Kerr, were badly beaten. The senseless violence of what came to be known as the Ealing Vicarage Rape Case shocked the nation. The light sentences given to the rapists, partly because of what the judge saw as Jill's remarkable recovery from her trauma, also shocked the country. Here, she tells the story, with unflinching and dispassionate detail. She describes the insensitivity of the hospital doctor, the support and care of the police, the intrusiveness of the press, the ordeal of identity parades, and the kindness of some and cruelty of others.
