A remarkably compelling and harrowing story of love and betrayal and one woman's pursuit of justice, redemption, and healing. "One month into our marriage, my husband committed horrific violent crimes. In that instant, the life I knew was destroyed. I vowed that one day I would be whole again. This is my story." An impassioned, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful story of one woman's pursuit of justice, forgiveness, and healing. When Shannon Moroney got married in October 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 and the agonizing choices faced by the loved ones of offenders. In so doing, she addresses the implicit dangers of a correctional system and a society that prioritize punishment over rehabilitation and victimhood over recovery.

Reviews

"""Through the Glass is a compelling documentation of a flawed penal system, a nuanced look at the humanity of a violent criminal, and a snapshot of the cognitive dissonance required by romantic love. Most of all, it's a meditation on forgiveness." --"Maclean's" "A remarkable story... of love and betrayal, of a horribly broken man's hidden brutality and his ex-wife's boundless capacity to forgive." --"National Post""Gripping memoir . . . It is an engaging, compassionate story of a woman's quest for hope in the wake of trauma and violence." --"Winnipeg Free Press" "There are many readers who will benefit immensely from Moroney's level-headed but passionate look at the journey on which she was thrust after her husband's crime." --"Edmonton Journal" "Compelling, gripping, and eye-opening.... A heart-wrenching story -- written with great clarity -- of the grief, confusion, judgment and loss." --"Waterloo Chronicle" "If you are going to read one book this year, let it be this one. You will never again forget, or take lightly, ALL the innocent victims of crimes." --"The London Free Press" "This is a well-written, emotion-filled book with many unanswered questions for society to deal with...it is a book that everyone should read." --"The Peterborough Examiner" "Through the Glass could easily have been the story of how Moroney's life fell apart -- and indeed, it did. But this is no 'poor-me' tale. It's equal parts a how-to manual for anyone touched by crime, an indictment of the criminal justice system, an endorsement of the practice of restorative justice, a thank-you note to the friends and family who supported Moroney and, ultimately, an answer to those who wanted her to explain." --"The Vancouver Sun" "A well crafted journey through the nightmare of Canada's courts that painfully illustrates how many victims of crimes are never truly accounted for in the trial process." --Rab
