Salvaging the Sacred
This is a harrowing essay first published as a feature in the British Guardian newspaper. Partington, a Quaker, tells how she struggled with extremes of grief, anger and bitterness when she found out her sister Lucy, missing for 20 yeas, had been kidnapped, tortured and killed by Britain's most notorious serial killers Fred and Rosemary West. She had to cope with the trial and prurient media coverage of their crimes. This is the story of a Quaker confronting ultimate evil on a personal basis.
