It's written in a very personal way and is a book than can be picked up at any time of day. I guarantee that you will enjoy this book for what it is - a book of true emotion and a tale of injustice.
The book takes you through her life with Andre, having their son and after Rachel's death how they were copying. Without wanting to sound heartless I felt that Andre was angry with the whole world and had clearly lost trust in everyone. You read it and personally I couldn't help thinking he was treading too carefully with his 3 year old and was wrapping him in cotton wool. The child had lost his mother in tragic circumstances however 3 year olds get temper tantrums anyway and as the reader I couldn't help but feel he was getting away with bad behaviour.
Andre was often saying he was angry about the way people were doing this that and the other afterwards and as the reader you can see both sides. Sometimes he had just put down his theories about something and were actually not correct ( about the police, about midwives etc.) and ultimately the people that were blamed for the murder in his book (x2 - the male friend of Rachel and then the man being blamed for it at the end of the book who was actually years later given a pardon). The book was written in 1996 and now they have caught a different man who confessed to her murder in 2008.
If you are interested in finding out more about Rachel and her story then buy it, I am glad I did as I knew her and wanted to know more about what happened. If you aren't then I would save your money
