Overview

The revealing, emotionally raw account of the aftermath of one of America's most infamous crimes

Sharon Tate was a promising young actress, a Golden Globe nominee for her work in Valley of the Dolls, and the beautiful wife of Roman Polanski. On August 9, 1969, the gruesome murder of Sharon, her unborn child, and four others at the hands of the notorious "Manson Family" rocked the nation. A defining moment in an era otherwise associated with radical peace, love, and understanding, this event still resonates with millions today.

While this crime left an indelible mark on society's consciousness, it was, first and foremost, a shattering personal tragedy for those closest to Sharon—the loving family left to cope with the emotional devastation of her loss. Now, after more than forty years, their story is finally revealed.

Compiled by close family friend Alisa Statman and Sharon's niece, Brie Tate, Restless Souls draws on a wealth of material never before available to the public, including interviews with the Tates, personal letters, tape recordings, home movies, private journal entries, and official documents. Restless Souls tells a powerful four-decade, three-generation story of crime, punishment, anguish, hope, rage, and love that is both a chronicle of loss and a celebration of life. Told from the Tate perspective, Restless Souls offers a rare glimpse of the post-trauma survival of a family and its journey to find justice and, ultimately, peace.
