In a new book that hits shelves on Tuesday, one of the three women who escaped after being held captive for more than a decade discusses how she recovered from the traumatic kidnapping.
Michelle Knight, who is now known as Lily Rose Lee, authored “Life After Darkness.” The new book comes out five years this month since she escaped from Ariel Castro.
“Life After Darkness” is Knight’s second publication. She said that she hopes to empower others through trauma by sharing her story.
“I am helping abuse victims by simple going out everyday speaking at multiple different domestic violence, human trafficking, making them aware how they can overcome things, how they can have the same strength, just by my words, just by speaking to them,” Knight said.
Knight, now 37, was kidnapped by Castro in 2002 where he imprisoned her inside his home on Seymour Avenue for nearly 11 years. Castro impregnated her several times and then beat her until she miscarried, Knight says.
