This is the shocking true story of the murder of a 3 year old girl in Oregon The murderer is the mother s boyfriend And what is so shocking is that the mother let this happen She had to know of the abuse and so she chose a boyfriend over her own child The father was very caring ready and willing to care for the child with full custody but the mother insisted on shared custody even though she was a self absorbed party girlYes it is a tough read but it is a story that is a wake up call for all who may suspect child abuse There were so many opportunities for a red flag when the young girl Karly could have been saved but they were ignored glossed over andor pushed aside Should have could have ought to have are all so easily recognized now but any of them could have saved a young precious vibrant lifeThe author is an investigative journalist who did a very thorough job of filtering through evidence and interviewing andor trying to interview all involved even if some refused to cooperate She had a personal relationship with the child s mother having earlier tried to intervene offering a refuge and an open ear years before Karly was born but sometimes people refuse to talk to listen to heed the wisdom of others

For the most part it is well written and an interesting book However I found myself furious at the lack of culpability of key players and their claims of god rescued Karly as if dying via abuse and torture was somehow god s way of rescuing a child from pain The overtly faithful confuse and confound me What I see in this situation has nothing to do with god or faith and everything to do with people only doing the bare minimum to appease their own conscience People who turn it over to faith and put things in god s hands are avoiding responsibility and accountability for their own actions or inaction There is blame that should be assigned in various levels to many of the people involved in the case of Karly Sheehan I did not at any point understand how the author had such a blind spot regarding the mother Sarah The past relationship prior to the existence of Karly is described in such a fashion that it is obvious to the reader that Sarah is a narcissist and not at all charming enough to have gotten away with the behaviors that she did It leaves the reader wondering at the critical thinking capabilities of the author who apparently has trouble reconciling the adult Sarah with the younger Sarah she was once supposedly close to Even though each description of historic events only serves to reinforce that Sarah was self serving and manipulative from the word goI think the author does her best writing when she is removed from the story When she retells David s side of things she is at her most poignant I think this memoir would have been better off having been some other form of non fiction not a memoir The story is sad and compelling without the addition of her faith guilt or her inability to figure Sarah out I do understand that writing it this way was cathartic for her but as an editor I would have taken that bit out
