About the Book

It does not always follow that being a parent there must be a strong bond of love between the child and parent. There are times when a mother will have an abject dislike of her child and will want to do it harm.

This is a young girl’s story of her battle with reality and a mother who has a decided aversion to her. As small children she and her brother are reminded frequently of the importance of telling the truth by their mother until she discovers that her mother is a pathological liar.  The mother’s lies become increasingly more prevalent until the daughter is arrested and accused of her murder. The fact that the girl is the victim is rejected for a more popular view of the public that wishes to find fault. The press, only too eager to offer censure against any misdeed of the whites who dominate the country, seize upon the arrest to feed the appetite of the public.  The heated public, fed with false information plunge into action to denounce the girl, thus glorifying her persecutor until all truth becomes obscured beneath a web of lies.
