From Miracle to Murder: Justice for Adam is about the murder of a little boy that took place in Phoenix, Arizona, 1983. It wasn't solved until 2002.Joyce loved her son. She treasured every minute of his short life. In spite of what the rest of the world viewed as terrible physical deformities and mental disabilities, Adam laughed. He enjoyed being alive. Joyce was devastated after he died. When police showed up at her door and accused her of murdering her little boy, her world shattered. From Miracle to Murder: Justice for Adam is a true crime novel, a memoir, and a historic non-fiction. It's a, "Oh my God, this really happened to a mother and her children! But she survived! She's doing all right! Then, maybe so can I." It's that kind of story. The characters are real people. What they did, what they said, and what they wore is documented. All scenarios are depicted as accurately possible and are based on police reports, depositions, court records, a grand jury transcript, criminal trial transcripts, psychologist's written evaluations, eye witness accounts, journals, victim impact statements, different avenues of public media, Adam's autopsy, and the author's haunting memories recalled to the best of her abilities. The reader is invited into the author's life. She wants them to see what she saw, thought, heard, and felt as she says her last goodbye to her son and when she's formally charged. Experience what she does when she is pushed to the edge of insanity, adjusts, acquires survival skills, and then creates a different normal as she forgives and finds joy again. From Miracle to Murder: Justice for Adam is for anyone who believes in the presumption of innocent until proven guilty. It is hoped that readers will walk away from Miracle with a greater faith that they can survive the impossible, forgive the unforgivable, learn how not to become a victim, and the importance of creating moments of clarity in the midst of chaos. Joyce A. Lefler is a registered nurse, a bereavement counselor, a facilitator for Parents of Murdered Children, and an advocate against abuse.
