The gruesome murders of the actress Sharon Tate, her unborn child, and four others at the hands of the notorious "Manson family" on August 9, 1969 rocked the nation. The atrocities, the trial and the subsequent conviction of Charles Manson and his followers spawned a media frenzy--a defining moment in an era otherwise associated with peace, love and understanding. Yet while this crime left an indelible mark on society's consciousness, it was an even more shattering personal tragedy for Sharon's loving family. Now, after nearly forty years, their story is finally revealed. Compiled by close family friend Alisa Statman and Sharon's niece Brie Tate, Restless Souls draws on unpublished material including interviews with the Tates, personal letters, tape recordings, home movies, public interviews, private journals, and official documents to provide a four-decade, three-generation memoir of crime and punishment, anguish and hope, rage and love.--From publisher description.

What a sad book. The Tate family was damaged beyond repair on the night that Sharon Tate was murdered, and the anger, guilt and depression have reached the third generation. I have lots of admiration for how they have directed their anger away from victimhood and towards activism for victims, but this is a family that desperately needed (needs?) more psychological counseling as individuals and as a family to process their grief.

Decades after reading "Helter Skelter" this book enlightened me to the struggle of Sharon Tate's family.

Excellent book. I suggest anyone who is studying this crime and belong to websites that study and discuss the crime should use this book as additional, behind the scenes, supplemental info. I have to disagree with dharmavan on one issue. There are not TONS of photos. As a matter of fact, I wish there were more photos. I think Alisa has more photos on her website or e-book, something like that. But anyway, I think it is an excellent book, the photos are good, and don't listen to Debra Tate. She and her minions are haters and Debra might have some mental issues. Give this book a chance. Even if you don't like it, at least you will come away with what the Tates went through for decades after Sharon's death, and how some of the prison protocol was changed thanks to Doris Tate. Hearing about the prison procedures will really open your eyes if nothing else will.

Incredible eye opener on the justice system and one of the most horrific murder sprees ever. I am still in shock of what the Tate family endured these past 40 years! The gruesome murders were only the beginning! Great writing, keeps you turning the pages till the very end.
