Murder changed their lives. Faith and hope changed their grief.

On July 13, 2005, newlyweds Marcy and Jeremy woke up to the murder of his mother— just down the hall—while they’d slept.

In this evocative book, Marcy and Jeremy Pusey bring you straight into the heart of their survival story, sharing the hope they found with the shock and anguish of their family tragedy.

This gripping work chronicles the grief journey of the newlyweds, tackles the nature of forgiveness, and shows how they moved through their pain to change the world. Their story demonstrates how faith can move mountains of resentment and hate to rebuild a life of healing, reconciliation, and joy.

While We Slept is a eulogy for a missed mother, a legacy for her children and grandchildren, and a lighthouse of hope for anyone else flailing through a tragedy. This book is not only the story of one mind-boggling murder, but also about how we can find courage in trauma, forgiveness in devastation, and how we can triumph after heartbreak.

And then there’s hope.
