editorial Reviews from AmazonReview"...[the] reader is not left with a sense of despair, but rather is empowered by hope and the knowledge that life can go on after devastating losses..." -- Robert Gillio, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Project Safe and Project Health
From the PublisherFew subjects in this world bring about more pain, confusion, and questions than that of the death of a child. How does a person find solace when her only son is abducted and murdered by someone thought to be a friend of the family?
This story, like that of the killing of JonBenet Ramsey, can never answer the obvious question "Why?" What transpires in this book is the story of Paulette Norman's waltz with insanity with grief and her ultimate process of healing.
The reader is not left with a sense of despair, but rather is empowered by hope and the knowledge that life can go on after devastating losses and serious health challenges.

And through The McKay Foundation and its Web site she offers curriculum and programs focused toward the safety of children.
