This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[I think what she said in the letter was the truth. If she really wanted to hide it, why would she even write that so called memoir? She even printed out a copy. I believe the letter because so many times while reading the book, I thought the memoir was fake because it CANNOT really be "published" as a memoir. It could be only be treated as a murder confession and if Verity really was as evil as wanted her to believe, she'd have never written it. And if she really wanted to confess, writing a letter to save herself because she had "second thoughts" would seem like a really pathetic and inadequate attempt to retract it ? Atleast, that's what I think. (hide spoiler)]
KrysdaleKate I am reading all these reviews from others. Most of them think the letter was Verity's last act of manipulation BUT something just nags at me to believe that the letter was the truth!
Dianna When I was reading it, I thought Lowan was the one who wrote the autobiography to get that clueless and inept guy to murder his comatose wife, so she could steal her life. Once I found out it was Verity-who cares? The idea she would write a fake memoir describing murdering her child is about as a believable of her writing a memoir of murdering her child.
