Suzette Kelo was just trying to rebuild her life when she purchased a broken-down Victorian house perched on the waterfront in New London, CT. The house wasn't particularly fancy, but with lots of hard work Suzette was able to turn it into a home that was important to her, a home that represented her new found independence.

Little did she know that the City of New London, desperate to revive its flailing economy, wanted to raze her house and the others like it that sat along the waterfront in order to win a lucrative Pfizer pharmaceutical contract that would bring new business into the city. Kelo and 14 neighbors flat out refused to sell, so the city decided to exercise its power of eminent domain to condemn their homes, launching one of the most extraordinary legal cases of our time, a case that ultimately reached the United States Supreme Court.

In Little Pink House, award-winning investigative journalist Jeff Benedict takes us behind the scenes of this case - indeed, Suzette Kelo speaks for the first time about all the details of this inspirational true story as one woman led the charge to take on corporate America to save her home.

    " An excellent book, good documentary style by Jeff Benedict. If you have never thought about eminent domaine, this is the book to read all about it. The decision given by the Supremem Court in this case is one of the most unpopular ever and, in my opinion, should be revisited and overturned. See what you think!! "

    " This is a true story of a woman's fight to save her home battling against eminent domain. I had a little trouble getting into the story but, once a few pages along, I was hooked! The world of politics at its dirtiest, a most unpopular Supreme Court decision, and the defiance and courage of the main character make this a fascinating read. I highly recommend it! "
