Overview

The family was seemingly perfect. A loving husband and wife, devoted to each other and to their children. Three young boys, aged twelve, six, and fourteen months. The family was strongly religious and close-knit. And, at the start of our story, they were planning a big barbecue to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Within twelve hours, the young boys would be dead at the hands of their own mother—and the town would be rocked by the greatest tragedy in its history. This book details both the murders and the mother’s trial, at which she claimed that God had commanded her to sacrifice her sons as he had to Abraham in the Old Testament—communicating through a series of signs she saw throughout the day.

Why would a mother kill the children she is bound by love and biology to protect? And can a person who kills because she truly believes God demanded it be found guilty of murder? This trial created a dramatic legal controversy—that still resonates in the present day.

    Wow

    Im giving this book 5 stars on how well its written....what its written about is a different story, i dont know where to begin..both these mothers mentioned in book are not mothers to me..my heart goes to the lil innocent childrens lives they took, i have a hard time beleiving they got off reason of " insanity" since thats the case n i wish i were the judge those women would spend the rest of their lives in prison where they belong..im a mother n know alot of mothers and i never had a thot of hurting any of my 4 children, times get hard patience run low and the thot was never there..and to blame God or whoever is just awful, those monsters knew what they did and for their own reasons..in the end God will be the one who judges.......R.I.P sweet children..Bn

    Well written

    An unfortunate but good read. Was short enough to get the story across and not full of boring court details.

    Not worth it's price

    I bought this ebook for 2.99, and when I opened it, I was disappointed to see that it was less than 60 pages. The content of the book it's pretty much the facts that you can read from googling the name of the mother... This can't hardly be call a book.
