Weeks after I read this book, out of nowhere I would start thinking about the whole thing, and all that those two precious babies must have went through as they were drowning to death...my heart would break all over again, and down would come the tears.After I first read this book my heart broke in-half because of the sorrow I felt for David Smith, and in some ways I still do (meaning for his loss of his boys)...but after I read Linda Russell's book (Susan Smith's mom) my feelings changed alot.I'm still saddend for him because he lost his children in such a horrible way; But no more than the rest of that family that a hand in loving and providing for those boys.This book is a intresting book to read, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you read the mother's book, after.In my personal opinion, I find Ms.Russell's book to be by far truer than David's was.I'm NOT trying to call David a liar, It's just that he was a little non-chalant about his faults and most certainly his behavior towards Susan and her family... (basically he left ALOT of holes in his book and Ms.Russell told the whole shabang) and I'm a firm believer that you tell it ALL and RIGHT or you shouldn't tell at all!May God BLESS that family in every sence of the word, for I can't imagine how one could recover from such a horrible, horrible tragedy.Keep in mind that, I went into reading these books totally oblivious to the hole details of this case.I'm 25 years old...so...I was only 16 when this all happend, and because of my young age, I didn't watch too much t.v...so I had only known little tid-bits about it, witch gave me a fresh perspective on it.I can say that I honestly will never read books on a topic such as this.Definatley NO more true crime books for me! My heart still hasn't recoverd from all of it.
