Lesley Moreland tells the painful story of what happened to her and her family in the weeks and months that followed the murder of her daughter Ruth. She reveals her struggle to find ways of continuing to live positively while accepting Ruth's death. This is a courageous and compassionate book of an unforgettable story.
That first knock on the door from the Police is what all parents dread. Lesley takes us through the pain and anger in great detail and explores society's attitude to punishment and redemption and how people react to sudden tragedy.
By exploring this issue from both sides of the Atlantic and assessing both sides of the moral dimension she explores our attitudes to murder but she does it with a rare sensitivity and insight that can only come from the pain and sorrow of losing her own daughter in a senseless but ordinary murder.
