It's doubly sad to read the dedication to Vanda, another of her daughters at the beginning and to realise she lost another child before her time was due as well. You have to wonder how someone goes on after this.
And what did the killer gain, really ?? Power over another person for the sake of half an hour, perhaps ? It deservedly cost him his freedom for probably the rest of his waste-of-space life and left a family devastated. Just....why ??
I was interested to learn her official date of death needs to be the date she was found and not the date she was killed and I loved the remark by her mum-he wasn't fit to lick her boots. Good for her.
I did spot some apostrophe errors and some dropped hyphens and at one point she mentions her son being called for the defence which I found totally baffling only to learn further on that it was for the prosecution which made much more sense !! I had wondered about the friend found with the killer and his involvement after the remark he made to the police when they visited. That made it seem like he DID know something, actually.
A very good read although you also feel a little intrusive reading it, too.
You simply must read this book
Sidenote to the publisher: I found the book error-free in the main but I was very disappointed to find the Contents page had a great many errors when citing the chapter page nos.
I have been gripped and overwhelmingly saddened for this family as I turned each page. I am in awe of Wanda's courage and strength.
The true events of Rachel's murder leading up to & the trial but most importantly what a lovely girl Rachel was & how it's destroyed her poor family it's a heartbreaking read.
Here's hoping some happiness returns in some way to her family.
