ÂThunder rattled the window- panes two stories high and lightning split the sky, it was as if the whole world was in turmoil that night. My nerves were keyed up as tight as piano strings and in a sudden moment of stillness and silence it felt as though my heartbeat was amplified ten times over. He was over a hundred pounds greater than I, nearly a foot taller and I knew he could move his muscled body into unbelievable sprints. Rain started falling in torrents, while the storm raged outside. I was not afraid of the storms of nature; it was the storm inside this night that I knew I might not surviveÂÂ February 13th, 1987 the night of Sara Niles flight with her five small children.
Given away to her aged and wise Uncle Robert and Aunt Molly at age 3 Â½, Sara spent ten years on the Âflower bed of EdenÂ being lavished with love and attention until death took its toll and Sara married an abusive man named Thomas Niles when she was only 16. Niles invites us to enter into her lifelong odyssey by the words: ‘Let the journey begin’, and so it does as the reader enters into a formerly forbidden zone.
The story of Sara Niles is more than a story of one woman’s journey into pain, it resounds with the voices of the many veterans of domestic war. Torn From the Inside Out celebrates a power greater than death itself, the power of the human spirit under fire.
