The Guilty and the Innocent
based on a true story
About the book:
Based on a True Story – in 1960s Italy where honour, respect and the judgment of others are the cornerstones of life, Diana’s youth is lived in fear. When she marries Marco, Diana endures overriding hatred from her mother-in-law. A torrid affair, devastating revelations from her husband and her generous nature cause great suffering. To unravel her daughter’s mysterious death becomes Diana’s only reason for living, but the truth is double sided – and Diana’s attempt to end it all marks the start of a glimmer of light.
About the author:
An Emotionally Charged Reading Experience
My review of this book:
Having several appointments today I took my Kindle along with me so that I could start reading The Guilty and the Innocent by Pamela Blake. When I arrived home after a long day of waiting rooms, I had most of this heart-wrenching, yet inspiring book read. I must say that the cover doesn’t even come close to the torment and heartache that the characters behind it endure and survive. Needing to know how it ended I quickly fixed dinner and sat down to finish it. With excellent descriptors of events, emotions, and setting the author draws you into the lives of these well-developed characters. I found myself on a roller coaster of emotions as the story of Diana and all those who touched her life, both good and bad, unfolded in vivid detail. You know the kind ride that reaches deep down in your soul and leaves you contemplating how differently your own past could have been. If you are looking for a book to inspire, move, and evoke emotion then, The Guilty and the Innocent is a must read. This book is a five on a scale of one to five.
