A Twisted Innocence: The True Story

Posted by Nikki Rosen on November 4, 2013 at 7:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Hard to believe.....after more than a year of working on this manuscript - A Twisted Innocence, will be done in a week or so.

It's been a journey, a wild one at times....and one that has reinforced the power of truth and that truth ALWAYS trumps lies.

Writing this story has opened doors to a community I never heard of before. It's connected me with people I never would've met...people who have reflected brilliant courage and incredible resilience.

I'm still in awe how things came together.  

A Twisted Innocence The True Story - soon to be released!

It's almost done....a story that gripped my heart. -  I initially heard about it from an old man. About a little girl snatched from her backyard by four young boys. What did they did to her was unthinkable, yet the child survived. Twisted Innocence is her story.

I started writing January 2012 and in the process, learned the old man's version of what happened contradicted the true account. The evidence and witnesses showed there were holes in his story......lies that contradicted the truth. 

Twisted Innocence is s story of faith and the search for truth. It is a story that will show everyone's life has purpose and out of the worst can come good.

Twisted Innocence A True Story - will be out November 2013

A Twist of Innocence - The True Story By Nikki Rosen

“Tell the truth, or someone will tell it for you.” Stephanie Klein

Elements of truth exist in all deception. It’s why lies sometimes sound real. But truth has a life of its own and in time, always reveals itself.

It happened sixty-three years ago, a horrific crime against a young child. When the community learned who perpetrated the brutal crime it shocked them even more. The story, A Twist of Innocence, The True Story, confirms evil exists and, sometimes comes in the most unlikely form.

The toddler, now a woman in her sixties speaks out for the first time and shares the truth of what really happened the summer of 1949 in Lowertown, Ottawa.

A Twist of Innocence - researched and authored by Nikki Rosen

The story has taken on so many twists and turns. It began with one elderly man telling me his version of what happened. His story was sketchy. He remembered few details. He said he was charged with a crime as a child that he was innocent of.

Fascinated by the story I set out to find the details. Incredibly I found the baby in the story and the boy who helped rescue her.

They told me the shocking truth of how four young boys snatched a toddler from her backyard, beat her, attempted to rape her and then hung her in a shed and left her to die. The four bragged about what they had done. Someone overheard them and told police. The boys were charged and ultimately sentenced. Three of them were brothers who already had a history of committing crimes that were serious enough to be heard and dealt with by Juvenile Court.

This story is about lies and deception and using faith as a means to promote and profit from a heinous crime. The title will be changed from A Twist of Innocence to Twisted Innocence.

Can young children commit horrific crimes? Unfortunately, they can.
