This book takes the reader on a roller coaster ride from hope to murder, and finally to reconciliation. It’s the true story of a man who cannot cope with a handicapped child, so he kills his wife and children, then attempts to redeem his life after a stay in a mental hospital. It is difficult to listen to, but Sandra Burr’s excellent narration makes it all worthwhile. She has an even, soft, assured voice that leads us through this tragic tale and allows us to recover before the journey toward rehabilitation and healing begins. She reads purposefully and with pathos, but never gets maudlin or sappy. Burr gets stronger as the story moves forward, and she truly captures the author’s tone and intent.
