This inspiring-and sometimes shocking-TRUE story is about love, trust, incest, murder and, yes, an actual miracle. The producer of the 2017 Discovery ID TV episode featuring Cheryl Cuccio says, " I laud Cheryl Pierson Cuccio and Rob Cuccio for blazoning their traumatic pasts and valiant love story so that others who suffer in silence might be emboldened to seek help. Like so many, I was first drawn to their story for its spectacle, but have come through it deeply humbled and indebted."In 1986 Cheryl Pierson was a sixteen year old abuse and incest victim. Day after day her father placed the fear in her no one would believe her if she revealed their dirty secret. But Cheryl had made a promise to her mother, as she lay in her coffin, to protect her eight year old sister from the monster Cheryl's father had become. To honor this promise and end the daily hell she endured, the distraught teenager hired a classmate to murder her father. The name Cheryl Pierson was in the national media for years, filled with assumptions and fabrications surrounding the murder, but her side of the story was never truly covered from her perspective. The one interview she did give to a reporter was while she was still in shock from what had transpired.Now, after thirty years, Cheryl has come out of the shadows to tell her true story--what really happened behind the doors at 293 Magnolia Drive, and what the life she and Rob have shared has been like. She is a strong survivor and hopes to inspire courage in those who walk in her shoes, and to promote abuse and incest awareness with this book. That strength was called into action in 2012 and the result was a miracle!
