It is hard to believe that a mother could be so cruel. Interesting book that delves into the depths of madness.

This story is a horrifying example of how children can turn against a parent after years of mental abuse. It gives a background of the principal characters from earliest childhood, thus giving the reader an insight into the ultimate conclusion.

This book is the author's first.

Excellent account of the crime of matricide. It did seem to go on a bit but still a good read.
