Clandestine Confessions tells the story of eighteen-year-old Elize who, craving to see the world, postpones going to college and accepts a job in the Caribbean where she is subsequently raped. Receiving no help from the local police, too ashamed to confide in her family, she decides to keep the assault a secret and continues to travel when her season in the Caribbean is over. But the memory of the rapist haunts her all over Europe. While working in Greece, in an attempt to escape the specter of her past, she becomes involved with Claudio, an abusive man. Having gathered up the courage to leave him, a painful challenge still awaits her. In her debut novel, Clandestine Confessions, Nina Holden describes the devastating effects of sexual assault and abuse from a survivor's point of view.
