Jane Doe No More

by M. William Phelps, Jane Doe No More Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Jane Doe No More books, In 1993, Donna Palomba was raped by a masked assailant in her own home. Yet, her story is more than a victim’s tale of physical and emotional recovery. It is a story of one woman’s hunt for justice while fending off attacks by institutions designed to defend and protect her—the police department, the local government, and a community clinging to an outrageous claim that Donna had invented the crime to cover up a sexual affair. From the night of the attack, the botched crime scene investigation, and the abuse as authorities attempted to close the case by discrediting her, Donna was left as a victim with no name and no identity. Meanwhile, there was one courageous detective, later to become chief of police, who broke a cops’ code of silence in the name of justice. As they fought on, a legal battle ensued after the Waterbury Police Department—now with media support—refused to let go of its allegations against her and admit wrongdoing. Finally, after eleven years of struggle, Donna learned the identity of her attacker from the chief of police, who explained that the DNA from the rape kit taken a decade ago had turned up a shocking match. In 2007, Donna Palomba was the subject of a special two-hour Dateline episode about her case. Suddenly, she was Jane Doe no more, launching the Jane Doe No More organization and becoming a promoter of the rights of women and victims of sexual assault. With the help of crime investigator and author M. William Phelps, this is her story.

Burying Jane Doe

by Barb Jenkins, Burying Jane Doe Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Burying Jane Doe books, Synopsis of the Book Burying Jane Doe: A Journey of Courage and Strength is written to encourage survivors of rape and sexual assault, especially women, since they make up the largest of the population of those who have been affected by this. This is a hard subject but affects so many. I wrote the book from my own personal experience with rape and identity recovery, because in the midst of that storm, I could not find anything to speak of that could be read to give much-needed hope, comfort, and strength for that road I was forced to walk. There is a gaping hole on this subject. This book will take the reader through from beginning, during, and after the storm, and will illuminate the presence of an Almighty God, who is in the midst of every stage of the journey. This book will give voice to the heart cry of every woman, man, and child who has been assaulted in this way. It takes the reader on the ride from the depths of despair and back to peaceful waters again, reassuring them of the love and peace and presence of the Father. At the same time, it is educating the public on rape culture, PTSD, trauma, secondary trauma, the justice system, and the right and wrong ways people handle this subject and those affected by it. This is a book that is geared for survivors and their loved ones after sexual assault and rape. It is my hope that you will find peace, restoration, and the knowledge that you are loved and beautiful and a treasure to our Father in heaven, living forward!

Devil S Right Hand

by M. William Phelps, Devil S Right Hand Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Devil S Right Hand books, The Devil's Right Hand chroniclesthe legacy of death and destruction in the gunmaking Colt family during the nineteenth century, a legacy largely remembered for a lurid murder case that inspired Edgar Allan Poe’s story “The Oblong Box”—but one that encompassed much more. . . New York Times and nationally bestselling author M. William Phelps reveals an unfathomable pattern surrounding repeating arms inventor Samuel Colt—from the death of all his children, including Sam’s sea captain son’s mysterious demise aboard his yacht, to the eccentric life of his widow. But the tip of this iceberg was the 1841-42 murder case of brother John C. Colt, one of New York’s most sensational scandals. Printer Samuel Adams went to collect a debt from bookkeeper and author John Colt and was never seen alive again. Shocking revelations followed: Did John shoot Adams with one of his brother’s Colt firearms before hacking him up and packing him in an oblong box? Did Sam Colt invent the revolving pistol, or steal the idea? Part historical true-crime, part family biography and cultural history, The Devil’s Right Hand is a stirring narrative about a darkly cursed American dynasty.

The Rising

by Ryan D'Agostino, The Rising Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Rising books, The astonishing story of one man’s recovery in the face of traumatic loss—and a powerful meditation on the resilience of the soul On July 23, 2007, Dr. William Petit suffered an unimaginable horror: Armed strangers broke into his suburban Connecticut home in the middle of the night, bludgeoned him nearly to death, tortured and killed his wife and two daughters, and set their house on fire. He miraculously survived, and yet living through those horrific hours was only the beginning of his ordeal. Broken and defeated, Bill was forced to confront a question of ultimate consequence: How does a person find the strength to start over and live again after confronting the darkest of nightmares? In The Rising, acclaimed journalist Ryan D’Agostino takes us into Bill Petit’s world, using unprecedented access to Bill and his family and friends to craft a startling, inspiring portrait of human strength and endurance. To understand what produces a man capable of surviving the worst, D’Agostino digs deep into Bill’s all-American upbringing, and in the process tells a remarkable story of not just a man’s life, but of a community’s power to shape that life through its embrace of loyalty and self-sacrifice as its most important values. Following Bill through the hardest days—through the desperate times in the aftermath of the attack and the harrowing trials of the two men responsible for it—The Rising offers hope that we can find a way back to ourselves, even when all seems lost. Today, Bill Petit has remarried. He and his wife have a baby boy. The very existence of this new family defies rational expectation, and yet it confirms our persistent, if often unspoken, belief that we are greater than what befalls us, and that if we know where to look for strength in trying times, we will always find it. Bill’s story, told as never before in The Rising, is by turns compelling and uplifting, an affirmation of the inexhaustible power of the human spirit.

Download Finding Dad books, "Think what her father would have missed if Kara hadn't been tenacious enough to pursue, not just her own identity, but his as well."—Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC's Morning Joe Kara Hewes had never seen her father, Rhode Island Governor Bruce Sundlun, until one transformational moment when she awoke in the middle of the night as a TV news anchor announced his candidacy. One look at his picture and she knew she needed to find him. Her letters and phone calls went unanswered, so at seventeen, Kara hired a lawyer and announced her paternity suit before a packed press conference. In the middle of the media frenzy, Governor Sundlun did the unexpected and invited Kara to come live with him so he could get to know her better. Kara knew that in order to move forward with her father, she had to make the choice to forgive the past. It was her unconditional love that broke down the barriers separating father and daughter. Kara Sundlun is an Emmy Award–winning television journalist. She anchors the news for WFSB-TV, the CBS affiliate in Connecticut, and hosts two shows—the popular daytime talk show Better Connecticut and Kara's Cures, a guide to health and spirituality. Kara is also a contributor for the Huffington Post. She was named "Best Reporter" by Hartford Magazine and "Top 40 under 40" from Hartford Business Journal and Connecticut Magazine. She and her husband, fellow news anchor Dennis House, live in Hartford, Connecticut, with their two children.

Waterbury Irish

by Janet Maher, Waterbury Irish Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Waterbury Irish books, The hard work of nineteenth-century Irish immigrants in Waterbury helped place the city on the map as the Brass Capital of the World. In the early years of immigration, Irish Catholics held Mass in secret, but eventually beautiful churches were built, attracting the most revered clergy in Connecticut. Soon Irish and Irish Americans established themselves as city leaders and professionals in the community. Dr. Charles A. Monagan was a founding member of St. Mary’s Hospital, while his son John later became mayor. Some achieved fame through their excellence in sports, such as Roger Connor, who held a long-standing record for career home runs until it was broken by Babe Ruth. Detailed research and oral histories from living descendants bring to light the remarkable Waterbury Irish legacy.
