Back cover copy

The gruesome murder of beautiful and talented actress Sharon Tate, her unborn child, and four others that same night by the notorious "Manson family" rocked the nation. While this crime and the subsequent trial and conviction of Charles Manson and his followers became a defining moment in the 1960s, it was, first and foremost, a shattering personal tragedy for Sharon's 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 material never before available to the public, to provide a powerful and affecting three-generation memoir of crime and punishment, anguish and hope, rage and love.

Honest and heartfelt, Restless Souls shares remarkable details about the role played by Sharon's father in the hunt and capture of her killers, the family's drive to ensure that those killers remain imprisoned, and the Mansons' continuing threat--even from behind bars--all amidst the torment felt in the wake of such senseless violence.
