Overview

As a wife, mother, and community activist, Susan LeFevre stood to lose everything – her life, her family, and her reputation. As a falsely accused drug lord, escaped convict, and hunted felon from the Michigan Department of Correction, incarceration was never far from her consciousness.

Sent to prison at age 19 on a minor drug offense—a 10-to-20-years sentence after she’d been promised probation—Susan Marie LeFevre chose to escape the life she’d been dealt and begin a new one.

It is a story that begins in the fractious, idealistic 60s, delves into the world of drugs and touches on church scandal, race relations and a corrupt judicial system. Readers will experience the headiness of that all-consuming first love, the humiliation of squatting naked in a jail cell, the friendships—and enmities—forged by necessity among prison women. And finally, readers will understand the price one pays in trying to escape the past and the lessons to be learned by confronting it.
Her parallel worlds were forever intertwined as the country witnessed it played out in courtrooms, news media and before public officials who ultimately decided her fate.
Two lives – one story.
