"Stolen Years" is the title of a book by Darrel Day that tells the story of Connie (Sarff) Nelson, a Long Prairie resident who was abducted by her estranged husband. She was taken from her apartment by him and driven, naked and unconscious to Mexico, where she remained his prisoner for 15 days. Connie will tell her story of a lifetime of domestic violence and the eventual trial that finally put her husband behind bars. Connie now works at Hands of Hope Resource Center which provides services to people in Central Minnesota affected by sexual assault, domestic violence, child abuse and/or general crime.
