Summary of When Rabbit Howls Summary of When Rabbit Howls Reviews for When Rabbit Howls An Excerpt from When Rabbit Howls
Truddi Chase began therapy to discover why she suffered from blackouts. What surfaced was terrifying: she was inhabited by 'the Troops'-92 individual personalities. This groundbreaking true story is made all the more extraordinary in that it was written by the Troops themselves. What they reveal is a spellbinding descent into a personal hell-and an ultimate deliverance for the woman they became.
