I don't often make a point of listening to the 15 Minute Drama that features at the end of each edition of Woman's Hour. Quite often, I'll catch the Monday instalment, resolve to listen to the rest of the week and then forget all about it. This week, there was no chance of that. Not A Love Story by Shelagh Stephenson was all about a young woman's rape ordeal. It showed brilliantly how the attack itself is only the start of the horror, and chronicled the woman's progress through the justice system, in the face of family and supposed friends who wanted her to drop the charges. I remained gripped throughout, and recommend that you listen to it before it falls off the iPlayer.
