Honorable Mention for General Non-Fiction,
2012 New England Festival of Books
The incredible story of a poor teenage Oklahoma farm boy who was charged with murdering his mother and sister in cold blood and then burning down the family home in a supposed attempt to cover up his crimes and his ten-year court battle to clear his name.
In the early morning hours of June 19, 1963, just four days before he was to leave for basic training, Bobby Wilson was awakened by his mother.
She held a loaded gun to his head and had a crazy, yet familiar, look in her eyes. Alongside his sister, Bobby had suffered her rants for years, but tonight was different. Bobby knew without a doubt that the demons that his mother had struggled with for years had their sights on him.
He realizes he has nowhere
to turn and nowhere to run, but he has no idea that the nightmare has
just begun. It is a nightmare that changes the course of his life.
It is a nightmare that will ultimately take Bobby ten years to wake
