    I never saw such an erroneous job done by a prosecutor and detectives. Mommy and Daddy were with this baby up until and hour before she died. daddy called the hospital at 10 P.M. asking for help with the baby! I had four children and five grandchildren and never called a hospital for help. He was that inept taking care of her! He and the mother should have definitely been interrogated. Shameful the way this went down.

    This was a very inspirational story! Audrey endured more than most and remained positive, never gave up hope and somehow kept her faith. Her story is an eye opener to some of the injustice in our system. A must read...I couldn't put it down.

    This book should be an inspiration to all who read it. Audrey triumphed over some incredible, heartbreaking injustice, and came through without bitterness. This is a well written book, I encourage others to read it.

    This is an amazing book about an amazing woman who was not given justice. But she didn't get bitter about it - she is now using her experience to make sure no one else has to go through the same thing. Extremely inspiring!!

    This is an amazing story of courage and unending strength that no one should ever have to face.  Once I started the book I could not put it down.  You can't believe how this could possibly happen in our society.  Audrey is a truly amazing woman and  she is a gift from god.  Audrey happens to work near my home and I see her on a regular basis.  Before I even knew her story she had this beautiful personality that would make smile and I would be disappointed when she was not working when  I stopped in.

    I was up all night reading this book, I could not put it down. Audrey is an inspiration. It's hard to stomach that our judicial system failed her on so many different levels.... and how she came out with a smile on her face is beyond me. Thanks for sharing your story Audrey!

    Wisconsin spends more money annually on the prison system than it does on the State University system, and is incarcerating three times the number of inmates that Minnesota houses. Is it possible that there are thousands of innocent citizens wrongfully convicted? Read this book and carefully think before convicting someone, the next time you are on jury duty.

    highly recommended

    This story is sooo sad, it just goes to prove there are wrongly accused people in prison, some don't get a second chance. Thank God Audrey had people behind her to help her out. This book was a real tear jerker....I actually went to school with Audrey and would have never dreamed she could ever be accused of being a baby killer....but it could happen to anyone under the circumstances she was accused on....... couldn't put the book down
