The Real Verdict
My Quest For The Freedom I Never Had
A child doesn’t choose her lot in life; but, ultimately, she is the artisan of her destiny. First-time author Nitra Gipson poignantly illustrates this
perspective in her captivating autobiography, chronicling her life from early childhood to the present. Growing up in a family wracked with secrets, young
Nitra constantly nurtured her dream to strive and achieve academic success. Her ambition was cultivated by her mother and uncles, who recognized her
budding potential. Although she recognized her intrinsic worth, Nitra was constantly demoralized by people in her family and acquaintance circles. Through
it all, she lived in fear, harboring a terrible secret of her own: From the ages of three to eleven, she endured physical abuse, perpetrated by a family
member. Despite her desperate attempts to reveal the truth, her outcries were ignored. Under threats and intimidation, the little girl harbored the secret
for years, until she faced her reality, found her voice, and put an end to the horror. Notwithstanding that triumph, Nitra’s quest for personal freedom was
far from over. At the age of thirteen, she witnessed her uncle’s high profile murder trial and execution. Then, five years later, she faced one of
America’s most formidable corporate behemoths in the courtroom, striving to prove her innocence of a crime that she did not commit. Who would ever believe
that an unassuming girl from Texas could prevail against such a foe?
