Bulletproof
by Laurie Beth Morales




Overview -

Bulletproof goes behind the headlines to tell the story of an unthinkable family tragedy, what led up to it and what arose from the ashes. The book begins with a marriage like many other marriages, launching with love and arcing into family. Andre held my hand and made me laugh through infertility, a traumatic miscarriage, cancer, then the miraculous births of Alec and Asher. Bulletproof will follow the marriage as it hit rocky shoals and ran aground. Dark secrets began to emerge. A quagmire of addiction revealed, alcoholism and DUIs followed by prostitutes and betting our life savings through risky day-trading. The book tells the story, too, of a marriage unlike most any other, ending as it does in murder and death row. The book will cover the trial, in which the Maricopa County Superior Court jury set an Arizona record for shortest deliberation in a murder trial. Eleven minutes. Guilty. And, less than forty-eight hours later, the sentence. Death. Bulletproof will also chronicle my own ongoing trial: I am responsible for the death of my children. Or am I innocent?

In charting my journey, Bulletproof will explore the infinite paths that we create to get back to ourselves and life here on earth when all we want to do is to follow our children to heaven. Bulletproof will examine the recurring themes of grief: the waiting, the guilt, the unpredictability and explore strategies for coping and insights for living. I have two homes: the uncontained universe where the boys are, which will always feel like home to me; and a Spanish-style stucco house in Scottsdale where I live with my husband and two daughters. Bulletproof will explore this life as a dual citizen and the challenge that lies in navigating the two worlds--as it has for the last seven years and now and opening up space for a new life, a different life.
