In the next month or so, many families will be sending a young person off to college for the first time. Part of this process will involve packing up his or her belongings and shopping for the oh-so-perfect accessories for the dorm room. Amid the goodbye tears, the thought of newfound freedom sends these college freshmen along their way. Yet oftentimes, parents neglect to inform their children of the dangers associated with college life such as date rape. Just a five minute talk could make all the difference in the world.
This month’s Jen’s Jewels Julia Heaberlin addresses this very topic in her latest release, Lie Still. It’s the story of Emily Page, a victim of college date rape. Now as an adult, she is happily married and expecting her first child. When she and her husband relocate to Clairmont, Texas, Emily is hopeful for a fresh start. However, when the queen bee of the Texan socialites is reported missing, it brings back haunting memories of a past Emily thought she had left behind.
