Faith, Karlene. The Long Prison Journey of Leslie Van Houten: Life Beyond the Cult (The Northeastern Series on Gender, Crime, and Law) . Northeastern University Press,

Faith argues on behalf of Leslie Van Houten, possibly the least culpable and most rehabilitated of three ?Manson girls?. The author has visited and corresponded with Van Houten since 1972, the yea in which the Manson girls? death sentences were commuted. Faith describes Van Houten?s descent from the middle class to Manson?s Family, finally suggesting that it is time for Van Houten to be paroled.
