All the revenue from sales curently goes to this charity.The second reason was to enlighten folk of its nature and give hope and dignity to a sad situation .

To read a novel or watch a film is soon forgotten.
To read a truly tragic story, written by an ordinary familly is something different. They have suffered a miscarriage of justice and have carried on with life for so many years with this burden that few people will know how they feel. I have read the story three times, many facts will never be forgotten. Couples in similar circumstances will know the devastation the loss of a child brings to a familly. The loss never fades. God bless you both.

I find it hard to write this as I have just finished this very tragic account of Christine's story and am choked by sadness and the injustice. It doesn't seem right that public money is squandered on legal aid for cases that are not as deserving as this one. I do not profess to know much about police investigations but the Kent police involved must hang their heads in shame for the way in which they conducted the case. I must thank Mavis and Ray for sharing this very personal story.
