True crime memoir

The author’s mother was murdered when she was still a child. She heard, but didn’t see it happen. This book explains all the adjustments and difficulties she had coming to terms with the situation. I read tons of true crime and memoirs, and must say that this was ok, but a bit too long. I also didn’t like how each chapter went from Before to After. A bit of a bother. I think the story would have flowed better to tell it from beginning to end, but I didn’t write the book.

Incredible...

After listening to the story it almost doesn't seem right to leave a review. But I want the author to know, I think this book is incredibly written, filled with a vivid account of Crystal Perry's life from her daughters perspective. Sarah you did yourself and your mother proud by writing an honest account of life before, during, and after a horrific crime. I hope you continue to write other books!! You are very talented.

A Walk Through a Murder

Whoa this is a roller coaster of emotion as you follow the author into not just her childhood but her mother's life, her murder and the following years. Some parts felt slow but I think that's due to the fact that this book is more than just a memoir, it's also the daughter struggling to find peace and a way to move forward after life as she knew it ended when she was 12. But that's the thing about loss, the survivors have to find new ways to move forward or be completely overcome with it. This is a raw, honest account of a daughter's love and unimaginable loss. I felt like she let the reader into her heart just as much as she provided all the details of the murder. Definitely an interesting read!
