The secret sounds of women deprived...

Linda was not yet eighteen, yet this was her life. The metallic clang of a cell door. The hysterical sobbing of a fellow prisoner who had been beaten by a sadistic warder. Even when she slept the gray life of prison crept around her. She heard the harsh voice of a lady-lover warning her, "What you need's an old woman to take care of ya, so play it easy, kid, and be nice to me." She saw the flash of a switchblade and caught a glimpse of a face ripped and bleeding. Linda had been convicted of no crime. She was in protective custody. Yet this was her life-this was prison.
