This was really a gripping story about the effects lies have on a seemingly normal family and, on a larger scope, about the question of capital punishment. Shortly after the story commences we learn that the main couple's 15 year old son has been brutally murdered. His murderer is tried and sentenced to death while the boy's family suffers an equally lifelong punishment of remorse, guilt, and grief. The grief the mom endures is almost palpable. I literally ached for her. I highly recommend reading this, no matter what side of the capital punishment law you favor.
