A search began which lasted an agonizing four months. Sadly, Laci Peterson and her son Conner were found dead on the shores of San Francisco Bay on April 18, 2003.
Her husband, Scott, was eventually arrested and charged with the murder of Laci and Connor. After a sensational, media-saturated trial, Peterson was found guilty of capital murder and was sentenced to death on March 16, 2005.
This book deals with the story in three separate sections: first, Sharon describes the ordinary, loving life her daughter led, including fond memories of her childhood and adolescence. Second, it covers her marriage, disappearance, the community's moving search for her, and her and Connor's eventual recovery from San Francisco Bay. Third, it tells the story of the trial in detail not before revealed. Sharon also talks about victim's rights, a subject on which she now campaigns regularly.

Sharon Rocha did a wonderful job with this book for her daughter. It was a great listen and I recommend it VERY MUCH. I learned a lot more about the case than I knew before.
Audio books have opened my world so much. I have been a member for a few years and i plan on being a member for many more years <3
This is a very good good book but you dont get all the details. When you get the other book narrated by Staci Snell you get so much more. You get full details, more of the story. In this book its very short and simple.
lol not sure have a lot of books on my wish list to chose from.
Yes for the most part.
Not really sure
Very touching. Much insight gained both about Laci and the Petersen family. What a total shame. Should not have happened at all. I admire Sharon Rocha for her class and courage dealing with the Petersens. She treated them way too kindly for what they did to her family.God bless you,Sharon.
Honestly,I was hesitant to pick this book.I did not think I could stand to hear the sad/gory details. Honestly, I thought it would be depressing. However, I was rivited to the trial with the rest of the country.
This book was fasinating.I felt like I had spent the evening having Sharon Rocha over for dinner and she she shared her heartwrenching story with me. Sharon narrated and did a great job.
I got the abridged version (fearing the detail in the unabridged would be too much)
I now feel I would like either.
I am the mother of a 20 something daughter, and My heart goes out for Sharon and the whole Rocha family.
Laci was such a beauty . Like the rest of the world I still cannot understand, WHY?
Sharon is such a strong woman, God bless her.
I appreciate her sharing her story. Reccomended!
This isn't a great book, but I found it to be very touching. I followed the case from the very beginning, and I've read all of the books written about it so I wasn't expecting many more revelations. I selected it, though, because Mrs. Rocha is the narrator and I was curious to know what she had to say. I listened to it in one day and it held my interest. The story is mainly about her murdered daughter and how she and the family was able to cope with the fact that the murderer was their son-in-law.
100% of the books I read are in audible format. I enjoy reading apocalyptic, WWII, psychology, classics, contemporary and non-fiction.
Listened to in February 2006. I thought this book was well written, penned by the mother of a daughter who was killed in such a horrible way by her husband and he was very close to the family. The resulting events with the husband's (Scott Peterson) parents, post murder, and how the parents antics are described in this book ,with such control by the author, is amazing. I'm just glad that it was put out there in writing for all to see. It comes across as a very accurate account, not sensationalized at all. So glad that Scott is forced to think about his actions in prison -- he could have gotten off if it wasn't for a woman scorned......who blew his cover.
