Excellently written story of a mother's horrific journey through the legal system following the death of three of her children. It is a moving display of how some times the legal system gets things wrong and it's important not to let personal biases influence how a case is investigated. The story allowed the reader to see how the dynamics of the family changed throughout the four years following the death of their youngest, and after the mother was finally exonerated.

I didn't find this book. I think it was because the subject matter was a bit too heavy for me. It was very facinating though, and heart breaking. Poor lady. I really felt for her. She shouldn't of had to go through all that after losing her 3 children. From what i read it was a good book, but like i said, the subject was very heavy.
