Sophie Elliott had everything to live for-- good looks, intelligence, friends, a loving family, a degree under her belt and a new job at the Treasury in Wellington. And then, the day before she left Dunedin to take up that job, she was brutally stabbed to death by her former boyf...riend, Clayton Weatherston. He was much older and a tutor at the university, and when the public came to take his measure at his high-profile trial in 2010, his narcissitic, manipulative personality stunned the nation. Sophie's mother Lesley has overcome the horror of her daughter's death and the gruelling process of the trial to set up a foundation to help young women identify when they might be in a relationship that puts them in harm's way - as Sophie was, unbeknownst to her and her family - and how to seek help. This book is her tribute to a daughter she adored, her harrowing account of a tragedy no family should ever have to endure, and her inspiring decision to make sure that Sophie's legacy endures.
