This book had been on my "to-read" list for over a year. I'm glad that I finally got round to buying and reading it. It is well written and researched and I found it hard to put down at times. It was especially of interest to me having worked in Child Protection in the police force for a few years.

Mary Weaver (a married mother of two and a Christian) finds herself in court charged with first degree murder and child endangerment after a child she regularly babysits dies whilst in her care. Weaver

Edges of Truth is an eye-opening true story that exposes the dangers of any legal system when it is swayed more by political pressure and expert opinion than by facts. Anyone who believes in innocent until proven guilty needs to read this bookand beware. I read Mary Weavers story with a sense of dread when I realized her ordeal of innocence could happen to any well-meaning American. Yes, it could happen to you!

Readers everywhere will be both stunned by her trial of patience and inspired by her

Shaken Baby Syndrome. Even the sound of it sets ones heart to aching, thinking of what an infant endured to suffer and die as a result of it. Edges of Truth: The Mary Weaver Story is a compelling, hard-hitting account of Mary Weaver, a loving Christian wife, mother, and child-care provider, when she is arrested and tried for the murder of 11-month old Melissa Mathes. Deb Brammer has shared Marys story with empathy and compassion, a story that should be read by parents, child-care providers, and ...more

Edges of Truth is a true story of a woman falsely convicted of murder. I love real life crime stories, and this really satisfied my appetite for it. I was swept up in the story of injustice and redemption and couldnt put the book down! The issue of shaken baby syndrome is explored as well as the difficulties of the legal system. Although there are a lot of legal and medical details, Deb Brammer brings the reader along easily. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This was a fascinating true story about a woman falsely accused of first degree murder. The book follows Mary Weaver and her lawyer as she faces trials and imprisonment. Mary's attitude through her entire journey is amazing, and years later the final outcome was worth it all. A real page turner watching to see if this wrongful conviction can ever be finally overturned.
