The tragic and grisly photograph--a woman on a motel floor, dead after an illegal abortion--stirred a nation and inflamed a movement. Now, LEONA'S SISTER GERRI tells the powerful and thought-provoking story of the anonymous woman behind the image and how she became an extraordinary icon for the ever-controversial abortion issue. Through tears and laughter, Gerri Santoro's tale of desperation in the days before legal abortion "unfolds in an intimate, unpretentious style" (The New York Times) as told by her family and friends.
