I'm left feeling very conflicted about this book. The child abuse was terrible, but the parents reactions made me uncomfortable, especially the mom. With all her experience, I feel she jumped to conclusions too easily. I fully understand why she didn't want her son to ever go to court about his abuse. The treatment of victims is horrible, but of all the people who understand the need of being 100% sure before convicting and punishing a possible perp, this woman is no stay at home mom. Going to jail is nothing anyone wants to face, but it's better than losing your life for a crime you didn't commit! Bottom line, we all seem to be too quick to decide and act with too little information and this trend in America scares me!
