“With Love From the Inside” Captivating

th-3A baby dies and the mother is found guilty and imprisoned.  It is a heart-wrenching scenario, and begs the question: what happens to the family who have been torn apart by such tragedy?

In With Love From the Inside, author Angela Pisel attempts to answer that question through the viewpoint of the mother, and the daughter she left behind.   It is seventeen years later and the convicted child-killer, Grace, is writing to a soon to be thirty-year-old Sophie: her only remaining child, now estranged.

The idea behind the novel captivated me from the outset, curious as I am about human nature.  The audio version, effectively narrated by Carol Monda and Andi Arndt, hooked me.  I could not stop listening, in fact; I finished the book in a day.

With Love From the Inside examines the trappings of love and betrayal and provides a path for healing.  Despite the darkness of the subject matter, I found it to be a feel good read.
