*An unprecedented collaboration between a woman and the man who raped her when she was sixteen. South of Forgiveness tells the story from their respective perspectives of Thordis and Tom's meeting to discuss this dark event. *Thoris Elva and Tom Stranger's TED talk about their story has been viewed over a million times and resulted in coverage from Cosmopolitan magazine and interest from The Washington Post, Yahoo News, CBS This Morning with Charlie Rose, and more. *This book is unique in that it humanizes both sides of a terrible act. For such dark subject matter, the book is uplifting (even funny) and presents the argument that no one is beyond forgiveness. The writing is personable, accessible, and compelling. *Tom Stranger is donating his share of the proceeds to charity.
