Name of Author
When two men stepped out of the darkness, Alison Botha had her nightmare journey begin with the two callous killers who were to rape her, stab her so many times doctors could not count the wounds, slit her throat and leave her for dead in a filthy clearing miles from the city of Port Elizabeth which was her home.
But Alison defied death.
And more than that, she denied her attackers the satisfaction of destroying her life. I Have Life is the triumphant story of a woman who refused to become a victim.
The courage which allowed her to move beyond severe physical and emotional trauma and to turn a devastating experience into something life-affirming and strong, is an inspiration to people everywhere.

Alison’s story is powerful, incredible, and miraculous. She certainly can say that she has LIFE. Wow. My trauma is nothing like hers, but many of the resulting emotions are similar. I hope that one day I will be able to hear Alison speak in person. She is heroic.

Excellent book by someone who experienced a night of horror that most would not have survived and learned to rise above the nightmare to help others who have been through traumatic events

I first heard about Alison Botha on a true crime podcast. What happened to Alison and her will to survive really piqued my interest. When I discovered her biography, I Have Life, I knew I had to read it right away. While what happened to Alison was beyond horrific, her will to survive and her outlook on life afterwards were inspirational.
