I thought this book, though not especially well written, was definitely worth the time to read. I had always been fascinted by the event, as reported on the news, and really wanted to know more. It was interesting.
This is a must read. She was pregnant when I was a new mom of an infant. This family had a 20/20 or one of those programs just about every year and I would identify my own son's progress in life with them. Amazing family!
