She appears on television, hysterical, apparently hopeful that her beloved boys are still alive. It was a story that had the entire nation glued to their television sets, praying for a happy endinc to this tragedy. For nine days the nation worried and wondered. For nine days, the police conducted two investigations-one that chased down leads from all parts of the country, and one that probed whether Susan Smith herself was guilty of an unspeakable crime. Then finally, with the eyes of the world turned toward tiny Union, South Carolina, the county sherif announced that Susan Smith had confessed to killing her own children. Written by a journalist who has covered the heartbreaking saga from its beginning, here is the untold story of how an apparently loving mother could sacrifice the two most precious people in her life. Shannon Women will starve in silence until new stories are created which confer on them the power of naming themselves.
