I was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of this book and was humbled by Shannon's capacity for forgiveness. Her life was torn upside down by the actions of her new husband yet she somehow continued to keep her head held high and create a new and inspiring life for herself. She credits her "Golden Circle" for helping her through this tragic, shattering situation and it is obvious that her family and friends in this group lifted her up..just as she lifted her husband Jason up in so many ways. This book is an eye-opening look at the Canadian legal and penal systems but it is also a book about love, childhood abuse, mental illness and above all forgiveness. It also demonstrates how moving to a system of restorative justice would help not only individuals but society as a whole. Thank you to Shannon Moroney for sharing her heartbreaking but ultimately inspirational story.
