LAURIE BETH MORALES, Bulletproof
Bulletproof goes behind the headlines to tell the story of one of the most horrific family tragedies in recent memory, one that begins with an ordinary marriage, but ends in the most unimaginable way. As a young wife, Morales struggled through years of infertility, a traumatic miscarriage, cancer, and then finally, the miraculous births of sons, Alec and Asher. Soon she begins to discover dark secrets, long hidden by the man she thought was a loving husband. His addiction is revealed, alcoholism and DUIs followed by risky behavior with prostitutes. Morales explores the paths that we create to get back to ourselves in the face of unspeakable tragedy. Her decision to tell her story publicly was driven by the hope that she could help others in the depths of despair.
