Through the GlassBook - 2011
When Shannon Moroney married in October of 2005, she had no idea that her happy life as a newlywed was about to come crashing down around her. One month after her wedding, a police officer arrived at her door to tell her that her husband, Jason, had been arrested and charged in the brutal assault and kidnapping of two women. In the aftermath of these crimes, Shannon dealt with a heavy burden of grief, the stress and publicity of a major criminal investigation, and the painful stigma of guilt-by-association, all while attempting to understand what had made Jason turn to such violence.
In this intimate and gripping journey into prisons, courtrooms and the human heart, Shannon reveals the far-reaching impact of Jason's crimes, the agonizing choices faced by the loved ones of offenders and the implicit dangers of a correctional system and a society that prioritizes punishment over rehabilitation, and victimhood over recovery.

Excellent commentary on restorative justice written by one who has first hand experience. A voice of reason that adds credence and weight to those who are speaking out against the 'get tough on crime' mentality. The author documents her experiences, not only with the shortcomings of the justice system as it deals with the perpetrators and their victims, but also with those who are neither perpetrator nor victim but the innocent person(s) related to the perpetrator.
