Overview
For decades, the family of Marcus Wesson--his wife, Elizabeth, and seventeen children--lived sequestered in a social and emotional prison, enduring his tyrannical reign of physical, sexual, and mental abuse. Then came the terrible day when a family confrontation erupted into a harrowing standoff: with police and SWAT teams descending on a small blue house in central Fresno, Marcus Wesson murdered nine of his children.
Television reporter Alysia Sofios got the first tip about Wesson's arrest and was witness to every twist and turn of the horrific case through to Wesson's trial. Risking her job and her life to offer friendship and support to the traumatized family members--scarred by memories and guilt, reviled for having the Wesson name--Sofios chronicles the case that shocked the nation, and gives voice to their astounding stories of survival. This is a stunning account of healing from one man's unimaginable acts, and how each, in time, learned to break free from a deadly devotion.
