Restless Souls is the true, bone-chilling chronicle of the Manson Family murders and its aftermath, from the point of view of the victims’ families.
When actress Sharon Tate and four others were brutally murdered by Charles Manson and his followers, the world was shocked. More than forty years later, the gruesome barbarity of the “Manson Family” still fascinates and horrifies.
This true crime memoir by Alisa Statman, a 20-year Tate family friend, and Brie Tate, the daughter of Sharon Tate’s niece, includes interviews with the Tate family, accounts from personal letters, tape recordings, home movies, and private diaries.
Complete with color photographs and personal insights, Restless Souls is the most revealing, riveting, and emotionally raw account of the gruesome slayings, the hunt and capture of the killers, and the behind-the-scenes drama of their trials, as well as a touching view of the torment that the victims families’ have endured for years after such tragedy.
I was excited to see a story written by the victims of Manon's family. The truth told in these pages is informative yet touching.
Surprising great read!
I love true crime books, so when I saw this one I thought I should check it out. I've read Vincent Bugliosi's Helter Skelter several times, so I was fascinated to find out the other side to the story.... The victims' family. I was not disappointed. Reading what went through Sharon's family's minds and hearts throughout their lives kept me coming back to read more and often late into the night. More fascinating than any true crime book, I felt a small amount of their pain and anger. The book is well documented and stays true to form. Again, great read!
This is a MUST read!
I did not know what to expect when I bought this book. However, it is a sad, poignant memorial to those who died that summer and the families they left behind. Doris and PJ Tate kept their daughter's memory alive by his work at first in investigating the crime to Doris' eventual work as a victim's advocate. I could not put the book down. It is beautifully written.
