At last the rest of the story! We all know (or think we know!) the monstrous details of the heinous crimes committed by Charles Manson & his malevolent followers. But this book finally gives an account of the sufferings of The Tate Family. In their own words!!
The authors do a terrific job of using all available resources(letters, interivews, tapes, journals) to document one brave family's triumph over evil!
Not an easy read...but definitley worth it!

For me, this is a clear-cut case of "caveat emptor"--"Let the buyer beware." Why? When I saw a news segment on "Good Morning America" w/ authors Alisa Statman and Brie Tate, I had the impression that the publishing of this account was sanctioned by Debra Tate, Sharon Tate's sister who took up the task of Tate family spokesperson/crime victims' advocate from Patti Tate (after Patti's death from cancer). That being said, please take the time to read Debra's response to the book's information on her website dedicated to Sharon. I wish I had thought to before purchasing this book. Like many, my thoughts were, 'Finally, the account of what the Tate family struggled through and won in the area of victims rights; not another lurid account of the grissly murders!' According to Debra's statement, Ms. Statman actually, at one time, lived in the guest house of the Cielo Dr. house. To be close to the murder site? If so, that's horrid, in my opinion. Furthermore, Debra states that Brie's last name, although Brie is Patti Tate's daughter, is not "Tate", but, "Ford". Those 2 pieces of info, alone, raise my suspicions that the authors are using the memory of Sharon Tate and the murders just to sell books! Also, according to Debra Tate, the author(s) describe the thoughts going through Sharon's mind during the murders--this is completely ludicrous and highly offensive to this woman's memory. Please, if you read the book, do so with a high degree of skepticism! Don't waste your money.

    don't know

    Can't review this item. apparently I don't have the correct NOOK device to be able to open it. I shouldn't have been able to even purchase it but they had no problem accepting my money. I sure wish I could have been able to access it.
