Does anyone really know the answer?

Whenever I review a book, especially non-fiction, I always read it a second time to pick up whatever I missed. Before that second reading, I make a list of questions that I have for the author. I refer to that list often, making sure I am able to address each one. The author did a great job of addressing the who, what, where, when and how of this book. I was left only with the "why's", and no one here on earth can answer those questions, including Dixie. I have to credit the author here once again because he tried to validate as many of these "why's" as possible. The bizarre behavior of Dixie will leave everyone wondering why.

Dixie's life was and is sad, full of pain, suffering, and bad choices. Starting out as an abused child, she married a man who battered her physically and mentally, so bad she was in constant fear for the lives of herself, her children, and the unborn child she was carrying in her womb. There is no denying by anyone, including the judges that her husband, Scott, was an evil and sadistic person. Dixie killed Scott, there is no question about that either, but was that her only option for Dixie? Can she convince the jury she was justified in her actions?

It is easy to see the amount of time and research the author put into this book. He does such a great job of telling the story that at times you may wonder if it is fiction or true life. I had a hard time putting the book down. I challenge you to read this book and not be affected. Evaluate the entire presentation of facts and decide for yourself, was the court justified in their action against Dixie. What would you have done? ( )
