What is Justice
By J. Brent Bill on July 13, 2013
This well written, honest book pulls no punches. Melvin presents a heart-wrenching (not a cliche' I use lightly) story of her years on the bench, couched memoir style, dealing with some of the most horrific cases you can imagine. In them she finds strength, humility, support, care, kindness -- often from the most unexpected sources. A natural story-teller, Melvin captures the reader with frank prose. I recommend it!
