Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The relative of the victims of a drunk-driving accident extends forgiveness to the criminal driver in this stark, improbable memoir of tragedy. In alternating chapters reflecting the points-of-view of the two authors (streamlined by the writer Laura Morton), the woeful tale unfolds. Alcoholic and married with children, Kishline rejected AA, but enrolled in a program called Moderation Management, which allowed drinkers to moderate their drinking and still function without having to abstain completely. However, Kishline still drank in secret, and in 2000 in Takoma, Wash., she plowed into an oncoming car on the highway, killing Danny Davis and his 12-year-old daughter, LaShell. Ex-wife and mother Maloy, who was reconciling with Danny at the time, staggered under the grief of their loss; Kishline was incarcerated with a four-and-a-half-year sentence. At one point, empowered by her Christian faith, Maloy visited Purdy Prison, where she announced her forgiveness. The aftermath was bittersweet: although Maloy was supportive, Kishline continually faltered before she could put her life back together. The stories of these women are wrenching and real, and now they plan to travel and speak publicly together. (Sept.)

    Forgiveness, yes. But where's the redemption?

    Audrey Kishline is sorry for causing the death of Sheryl Maloy's ex-husband and their 12 year old daughter. Audrey still drinks alcohol, even after the devastation her drinking wreaked on Sheryl's family as well as her own. Audrey Kishline says that she can't live without alcohol and gave up caring for her own two children. She gave up her children's well being over alcohol so how can she possible understand Sheryl's depth of grief at losing her adored child? What mother wouldn't walk through fire for her own children even if that fire came in the form of suffering abstinence daily for the rest of her life? Audrey is articulate but her side of this story quickly unravels as we see through her attempts to present herself as a deeply caring mother of two whose flaws have been redeemed. Forgiveness given by Sheryl Maloy is admirable but as far as Audrey Kishline redeeming herself, that work still remains
