*****SPOILER ALERT*******
Excellent if a bit dramatic story of the lengths a parent will go to protect their child-though I also liked that this is balanced by Nina's husband Caleb who realizes that Nina did not kill so much for her son as for herself-a fine distinction. Of why vigilante justice should never be allowed or tolerated-because the wrong man-a priest no less-is murdered.
There was of course the Jodi Picoult standard 11th hour shocking secret-which I had long ago guessed-and the standard shocking testimony and in my mind-the completely wrong verdict. If Peter(in Nineteen Minutes) deserved life in prison and as sorry as I felt for him, he did-Nina deserved life in jail even more. She was a prosecutor who did not even wait for the evidence to come back for she meted out her vigilante justice taking the life of a completely innocent man. Whatever her reasons and feelings and wanting to protect her son-she took the life on an innocent man-someone else's beloved son, and she deserved to be put UNDER the jail.
