Book Description

TRUE CRIME
"THROUGH A MOTHER'S EYES"
A chilling look at human nature in a context where the lines between right and
wrong are obscured. It is compellingly written account of one woman's life and
what drove her to the brink. It neither condemns her actions nor supports them
but leaves one to wonder how close the edge really is for every one of us. It
seems that the author is writing with this purpose in mind...to bring to our
attention how seemingly small 'everyday' choices and events build up. They
shape our personality, perception, thought and justification process, and
eventually our actions as surely as water shapes sandstone. It is a fascinating
but tragic study in human nature but one that should not be missed.



Editorial Reviews

Review

Dear Mr. Stone,
Thanks very much for sending me "Through a Mother's Eyes." I had the opportunity to read it this week. You certainly capture many of the central issues I have repeatedly seen in mothers who kill their children. You also did a great job of presenting it without bias. I believe the public is well served by seeing inside the mind of a woman in such a complicated case of child murder.

Best regards,
Phillip J. Resnick, M.D.
5-STAR "THROUGH A MOTHER'S EYES"

5.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED August 5, 2012
Format:Paperback
This has to be one of the most poignant heart wrenching books I have read in a long time.

A woman so driven to protect her child she takes his life.

We often hear about women who murder their children and those of use mothers cannot understand how someone can do that, but the truth of the matter it is all here in this book, how Julie was abused from an early age , continued into adulthood and beyond, so driven to protect her beloved child she thought the only way was to kill him to save him from an abusive father.

Every person who has a child or intends to bring a child into this world should this book and understand, if you abuse a child and then it continues into their adulthood they too then become the bully and will demonstrate abusive and mental cruelty to their own because it is what they were taught as children. No child deserves to be killed because of another persons actions.

My heart goes out to Julie for having to live with her actions, but I can understand how and what she had to endure at the hands of both her husband and only killed her child to protect him.

This book is a peak into a mind of a mother who because she is taking so many drugs that her thinking is totally screwed up, and she has used up family support that she thinks she has no other choice than to kill her child and herself in order to 'save' her son. Execpt she doesn't manage to kill herself. If she hadn't been high, would she had seen that there is help? I truely hope that the author's goal to save others from repeating this behavior is reached. Well written.

3.0 out of 5 stars Murdered by Mother October 21, 2012
By Sozo
Format:Kindle Edition
The first thing that struck me when reading this book was the use of personal pronouns. This sick, sad story is all about the killer mom, not the innocent child. It is interesting to look inside the thought pattern of one who commits the most abominable crime - killing ones own child. The author makes this quote: "I want you to decide if the events in Julie's life were "reasonable" catalysts for her fatal action. By "reasonable" I do not mean justifiable." My "decision is that there was and are NO "reasonable" catalysts for her fatal action. This is not a "reasonable" decision, but an evil one. The author gives a sympathetic look at a person who most would not give the the time of day. Many of us could not find within us that sympathy. In spite of this, perhaps interviews with those who commit these horrendous crimes may give us some insight and forewarning to some clues that will prevent more of these.

While quite disturbing it was a well written book with a strong message. It's a side that normally isn't heard in this manner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book November 2, 2012
By Crystal
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I dont think I've read a book that has ever looked into the why. This book did. And did a great job at doing it! This book explains what Julie was thinking and doesn't give a "sensationalized" opinion. It was well worth the read. I don't agree with what she did, but then again that's not the point of this book, but I do better understand her frame of mind. Good job goes to the author.

It was a good story, but at times hard to follow. Seems like when she was interviewed there were times she got off of the subject and didn't really give an answer to the questions.
