9780091905699: Stolen Innocence: A Mother's Fight for Justice

To lose one child is terrible; to lose two is unimaginable. For no one to believe that you are innocent of their deaths and to be imprisoned because of it must be unbearable.

Yet this is the reality Sally Clark had to face. The daughter of a policeman, wife of a solicitor and a solicitor herself, just when she was grieving from the tragic death of her second child the system she'd always believed in turned against her. Justice suddenly seemed a far-off principle as she was convicted and her initial appeal quashed. Her family, lawyers and various volunteers were relentless in their fight to clear her name. Finally, following three long years in prison, suffering abuse and the bleak horrow of bereavement, Sally Clark was finally acquitted by the Court of Appeal in 2003.

Her release caught the nation's attention, and paved the way for succesful appeals by wrongly convicted mothers such as Angela Canning. Written with the power of a thriller, the book is a tragic but ultimately uplifting story of a mother's love and a family's gutsy fight for what they knew to be right.

Review:

"This fascinating book burns with moral outrage" ( The Observer)

"Makes haunting reading" ( The Sunday Times)

"Moving and harrowing" ( The Sun)

"This book is a disturbing read. It is a terrible indictment of the criminal system, the legal profession, and our own experts" ( British Medical Journal)

"Well written and has the same unputdownable quality as a good novel. But a novel it is not. What happened to Sally makes you want to spit... This is a book that should be read by all solicitors" ( Solicitors Journal)

From the Publisher:

In the bestselling tradition of Forget You Had A Daughter and Hannah's Gift, the story of a mother's loss and a family's fight
