DESCRIPTION :
'My intention is simple -- to take the reader on the same journey I took, and have them experience the real truth of it. The book is for me, my family, the Falconios, for Pete -- and for anyone who has been the victim of violent crime.' Almost raped and murdered, Joanne Lees became the key witness in one of the most high-profile trials of recent times -- the murder of Peter Falconio on a quiet stretch of deserted highway in Central Australia in mid-2001. Reported in sensational detail, the media's focus was often not on the man convicted of Peter's murder but on the woman who escaped him. Joanne has a unique and moving story to tell -- of the events of that terrible night, through the gruelling process of the police investigation, and the traumatic time of the trial, where she had to re-live so much. And she tells of the continuing effects on her life, on her family's life, and the Falconio family's life. Joanne Lees wasn't killed that night -- but from the moment she and Peter stopped to help a stranger on the highway her life was changed forever. No longer content to be a silent victim, Joanne Leees reclaims her life from other storytellers. The book is her story -- of what happened that night, and in the years that followed; and how she is facing the future. No Turning Back is a story of immense courage and survival.
