Book Review

Reviewed by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite

Cary Allen Stone’s Through a Mother's Eyes: A True Crime Story is the true story of Julie, a mother who murdered her child. Stone did not write this story to gain sympathy for Julie or for people to hate Julie. Stone wrote this book so people can maybe understand what was going through Julie’s mind when she committed the crime.

Stone has an interesting writing style for writing true crime. She states only the facts, tells the backstory of the murderer, and gives the murderer a chance to explain why they did what they did. By Stone writing the book like this, it gives the reader a chance to ask themselves what they would have done if they were in Julie’s situation.

Through a Mother's Eyes: A True Crime Story is not an easy read. After reading this I can say I do not like Julie, but I can kind of see why she did what she did. However, there is still no excuse for her to murder her child. I believe her upbringing had a lot to do with why she murdered her child. This is why I believe that other people hold blame as to what was done to her son Charley. I was surprised that Chuck tried to help Julie after she murdered Charley.

I thought that this was a well written book, although after finishing it I was left with a deep sadness for Charley. The way Julie murdered him was brutal in my eyes and I had a hard time getting thoughts of it out of my head. This book is not for everyone. If you like reading true crime then you might enjoy this book.
