In this poignant autobiography, Sasha Lucas recounts her struggle to overcome the mental and emotional pain of sexual assault and domestic abuse and the effect that both have had on her life. Aged fourteen, Sasha was subjected to a horrific assault by people she thought of as friends. Afterwards, Sasha's life began a downward spiral, until she met the man who would become her husband and the father of her three children, the man she thought would protect her and with whom she could build a life.

Instead, Sasha was to endure not only years of physical and mental abuse at the hands of her husband but would also discover that her children, her reason for living, were hiding their own terrible secrets. Atmabala is a searingly honest account of one woman's battle to rebuild her life in the face of many painful obstacles. It is a story of success.

Sasha J. Lucas

This is the first part of Sasha's life story. She was prompted to write this memoir by her fifteen-year-old daughter, who was desperate for answers, answers to questions about her mother's past and, in turn, her past. Her story is about broken dreams and the reality of rape, domestic abuse, assault, sexual abuse and the courage that is needed to escape this environment and protect loved ones in danger. She is hopeful that sharing her story might shed some light on the reality of domestic and sexual abuse and the ongoing effects of trauma.
