Publisher's Summary

Laci Rocha Peterson, eight months pregnant, was last seen by her sister, Amy, in the late afternoon of December 23, 2002. She spoke to her mother, Sharon Rocha, at 8:30 p.m. that night. This would be the last time anyone from her immediate family ever spoke to her.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.

This is a very good book, but...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

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.

What do you think your next listen will be?

lol not sure have a lot of books on my wish list to chose from.

Did Sharon Rocha do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes for the most part.

Do you think For Laci needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not really sure

- sherry "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"


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.
