When Shannon Moroney married Jason Staples in October 2005, she had no idea that her happy life as a newlywed was about to come crashing down around her. One month after her wedding, a police officer arrived at her door with the news that her husband had been arrested and charged with the brutal sexual assault and kidnapping of two women, taking them to the house he shared with Shannon to commit the acts of violence. In the aftermath of the crimes, Shannon dealt with a heavy burden of grief, the stress and publicity of a major criminal investigation, and the painful stigma of guilt by association - all the while attempting to understand what had made Jason commit such violence. In this intimate and gripping journey into the human heart, Shannon reveals the far-reaching impact of Jason's crimes and the agonizing choices faced by the loved ones of offenders. She also tells the powerful story of how she made the amazing transition from being a member of the 'trauma club' to completely rebuilding her life. This is an impassioned, harrowing and ultimately hopeful story of one woman's pursuit of justice, forgiveness and healing.
