An Unlikely Romance, a Deadly Gunshot, and a Young Widow's Road to Redemption

On a balmy night, everything changed in the stilling of a heartbeat. During Leigh Ann's psychiatric clinical work as a nursing student, a patient swept her off her feet with his dazzling good looks and charm. But soon after marrying Mr Right, things began to go horribly wrong.

When Leigh Ann pulled the trigger... her life changed forever.

Believing the best of the man she loved, she endured the heartache and abuse until his threats turned deadly. On the night of September 16, 1994, Leigh Ann Bryant, fearing for her life and that of her young son, shot and killed her husband. Panicked and afraid of retaliation, she told the police an intruder had committed the crime.

Indicted for murder, and subsequently jailed, Leigh Ann's journey of desperation miraculously turned to one of ultimate healing. "In My Defence" is for anyone who has felt alone or hopeless at the hands of abuse - whether it is emotional, physical, sexual, or spiritual. It offers tangible hope for victims - and those who love them - who are earnestly seeking the light of healing and freedom.

Leigh Ann Bryant, an award-winning writer, survived her marriage to an abusive man, whom she ultimately killed in self-defense. She was jailed and stood trial for capital murder. Leigh Ann has worked as a registered nurse in several areas of specialty, and currently works as an acute-care dialysis nurse. She speaks at prisons throughout the US telling her riveting story, and lives with her husband and son in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Leigh Ann's story will grip and shake you, and never let you go.
