After the Eclipse: A Mother's Murder, A Daughter's Search

Sarah Perry
# UP4952 Hardcover, 350 pages; 2017
No Longer Available
In 1992, thirty-year-old Crystal Perry was murdered in her home in rural Maine, while her twelve-year-old daughter, Sarah, lay frozen in fear on the other side of a thin wall. The killer escaped capture for twelve years, during which the bereft Sarah struggled into adulthood. After the Eclipse is Sarah's lyrical and poignant account of the unspeakable tragedy and its aftermath. There's gripping suspense with the search for the murderer and the subsequent trial, but this is not simply a true-crime thriller. Rather, it's a poetic and triumphant coming of age memoir, an astute commentary on class and domestic violence, and, most of all, a daughter's achingly beautiful tribute to her spirited, intrepid mother.
