Beyond All Repair cover art

Beyond All Repair

Sophia was starting fresh: a new life, a new husband, a baby on the way. But it all unraveled when she became the prime suspect in her mother-in-law’s brutal murder. To this day, Sophia swears she didn’t do it. But someone says they witnessed it — her own brother. When family betrays family, who do you believe?

In this story of a sibling rivalry beyond compare, WBUR’s Amory Sivertson turns the clock back. She reexamines an unsolved case, a family torn apart, and the woman who wasn't believed in Beyond All Repair.
