How would a mother handle a tragedy such as Susan Smith's murder of her own children? What happened in Susan's background to drive her to such an action? Is she the only guilty party, or are there other people who, by their actions, are culpable in what happened? These are the questions that compelled Authors Book Nook to publish My Daughter Susan Smith.
From the Back Cover
She was never a violent person, never abused her children. She never committed an act of any kind that those close to her could point to later as an omen of the killing of her children. She loved them dearly. They were her life. But she sent three-year-old Michael and fourteen-month-old Alex to their deaths in John D. Long Lake on a dark October night more than eighteen years ago.
In the nearly eighteen years since Susan was found guilty of murder, I am just now beginning to understand the silent devastation of mental illness. Obviously, I have to accept that Susan was responsible for the deaths of her children. But where does responsibility lie for what happened along the way that got her in that mental shape? This book is a quest for understanding--for myself and for others.

Nothing excuses what Susan did to Michael and Alex. They did not ask to be put in this situation and they are the true victims. Not Susan, not Bev, and most certainly not Linda.
After reading this I was more convinced than ever that Susan Smith murdered her sons not because of mental illness but because she seen them as the reason for her unhappy marriage and for why she couldn't have that happiness with someone else after her marriage was over.
While I wouldn't recommend this book I gave it two stars because it is well written, it flowed well and there were very few if any spelling errors.
