Decades later, Rebecca’s haunting confession reveals the truth about that night, the years that followed, and the friendship that defined her.
Gorgeous, captivating and compelling, Autobiography of Us is the story of two women caught between repression and rebellion, and the sacrifices, struggles and triumphs of a generation.
