Can you trust your father, when they say he killed your mother?
17 years after being convicted of murder, Izzy’s father is finally released from prison.
She wants nothing to do with him – but he claims to be innocent.
She’s always believed he killed her mother, but now doubts are creeping in.
Because if he’s telling the truth, then someone else has been lying all this time . . .
I cross the old wooden bridge A time machine to the past Each step could be the one To trigger the magic I am halfway across, looking back I can see nothing, clouds, mountain tops, no bridge My footsteps vanished, alongside the old wooden planks I walk on, praying Please let the next step take me home The clouds ahead looked thinner Started to clear I could see the most amazing buildings Blue and white Gripping the rail edge to move on A white shroud stole my beautiful vista I was alone, nothing but wooden planks ahead of me That’s when I heard a small voice Do you want your old life? I couldn’t stop myself from yelling, yes! Then turn around. If you have faith The bridge will appear Would you take that step back With nothing to see but clouds?
Review for The Evidence Against you
When Izzy was a child, someone killed her mother.
The finger of suspicion pointed to her father, something she never quite believed. I think it must be almost impossible to consider something like this, even when the evidence is overwhelming.
The Evidence Against You is the harrowing story of Izzy’s journey to the truth.
Against all the opposition and her own misgivings, she stubbornly holds on to the hope that the proof will be found to change the verdict. For if her father didn’t kill her mother, someone had gone to a lot of trouble to make sure he went to prison.
Of course, it must be perfectly normal for a daughter to feel like this, so why would someone want to scare her into believing the worst?
While reading this engrossing story, I instinctively went with Izzy, believing her father was innocent.
Was I wrong?
