Overview

On July 26, 2009 Diane Schuler packed up the campsite, piled five children into her minivan and headed for home on Long Island after a weekend of camping, a drive that should have taken two hours from upstate, NY.

Four hours later, she sped down the Taconic State Parkway in Westchester County driving in the wrong direction. As panicked motorists swerved out of her way, she continued for almost two miles. Blowing horns, flashing lights, and waving arms did nothing to deter her. Rounding a curve in the road, she rocketed head on into an oncoming SUV. The vehicles seemed to explode as they hit. The minivan plunged downhill and burst into flames as the SUV was pushed across two lanes and struck by another SUV. In the smoldering vehicle and twisted metal scattered along the highway, lay the bodies of eight people.

Days later came the headlines;

"Wrong Way Crash Mom Drunk and High!"

    Do Not Recommend - Poorly Written

    I buy and read many books. It is extremely rare that I cannot finish reading an entire book. This one was an exception. Although the story is tragic, as depicted in the title, it is very poorly written. The second chapter was a repeat of chapter one. The third chapter was a repeat of chapter two. Etc., Etc. I kept reading wanting the story to move along, but it never did. I resorted to skimming the pages and only got more of the same. Maybe the book gets better, but I could not read anymore to find out.

    Unbeleavable truly worth the read this book leaves me in tears

    A story about a man in desperate need to find the truth about the killings of his loved ones and about how he is digging through the lies of others to find the truth on why this happened, a true inspiring book.
