Generally, I don't read biographies. I just can't get into them. I'm not exactly sure why. So I was a little leery about reading this book. It is the story of a policeman in the 1970s who was shot in the line of duty, the events surrounding this event and the effects it had on his family and his life.
I really like how the book is written. It is in the chronological order of the events that happened but every other chapter is from the daughter's perspective--who was nine at the time of the shooting--and the father's perspective.
I have had to force myself to turn off my light at night because the story is so engaging. And here I am writing about it and I haven't even finished it! (Which is why this book is not listed on my 100+ Reading Challenge post.)
This memoir is definitely a must read!
