It's one chapter too long. The book was good but got very long-in-the-tooth towards the end. I wish it had ended before all the discussion about the media, dropping their daughter, what their kids are doing, Billy Simon etc. etc. The media discussion especially really cheapened their story, in my opinion.

User Review  - Stephanie Bain - Goodreads

The story was beautiful what they went through tragic. But the writing felt just like someone was just recalling events. It was a timeline and that disappointed me. I prefer the movie. Read full review
