Myself, I thought the correspondence became trite, boring, and meaningless. The one question is WHY? Why keep them and cause so much pain and anguish to your child? Destroy the evidence and let dogs die.
The unconditional love between his parents was powerful. I especially enjoyed the letters his father wrote. As a society, we rarely read anything where the man lets his guard down and shows his weakness or emotions. The letters he wrote from prison showed the raw emotion and how badly he needed his wife to be strong for the two of them, to get him through it all.
Through the letters and bits of information Ron had learned, you see how strong his mother was. She went through hell and back but didn't let anyone or anything stop her from living day to day. She had to keep going, she had her husband that probably wouldn't have survived mentally or emotionally in prison and she had to raise her young son.
I went through an emotional rollercoaster reading the story. I honestly don't know where I sit at the moment. I want to be on their side and feel for them, but we don't know the entire story (yet?) ... Was he guilty? Was it rumors that got him in trouble? Why did his wife forgive and stay? Why keep this from your son, but leave enough evidence to tell him only part of the story once they passed away? Why doesn't he say he admit to doing something horrible, or plead his innocence? Why does the court system jerk them around so much?
Ron encourages the reader to keep an open mind and not judge too quickly. You will flip flop as you read through the story and letters.
I look forward to reading more of the story if there is one and I wish Ron all the best in his research. I do hope he can uncover more, not just to write the story, but for him to have closure.
What do you do when all your memories and everything you've ever known is suddenly turned upside down. Who do you trust and what do you do with the facts in front of you. Well, fortunately for us, Mr. York decided to write a book, and what a wild ride it is!
Hard to believe this is the first book he has written, as the words flow easily revealing the emotional underbelly of a man trying to come to terms with his newly discovered past. He keeps you close at his side through all the painful revelations as he peels back the many hidden layers that dealt with his family's criminal past. It can't be easy to share these personal experiences and shattered memories. Yet, at the same time, I think it will give hope to others and maybe bring them peace in their own lives. I wholeheartedly recommend this book!
I couldn't put it down…
