It’s true that a good number of violent crimes are committed by those who themselves have experienced violence or injustice in our societal structure. And, yes, it’s equally true that the injustices are weighted against minority and marginalized people. It’s also true that our current prison system is failing as any kind of model for reformation or rehabilitation, but conflating transformative justice with prison reform only weakens both arguments.

Sins of the Fathers, by Judith Liebaert
Tellectual Press -June 19 2016.
From the publisher: On June 19, 1966, fourteen-year old Michael Fisher set out on his paper route in Superior, Wisconsin and disappeared. That night, in a grassy ditch along a remote road his body was found, but no killer ever was. Now, longtime Superior resident Judith Liebaert commemorates the Fisher case with a murder mystery of her own. "Sins of the Fathers" is set in her childhood hometown and also begins with a cold case from fifty years ago. But her debut novel is all fiction--from the opening scene where a shadowy, old killer confronts a second victim to the surprising end when both murders are finally solved, in a way nobody expected.
5.0 out of 5 stars - Judith Liebaert, in her first novel takes you on a ride you won't easily forget, proving "the first cut is the deepest"!

She did a fabulous job keeping me on the edge of my seat. Read it two sittings, can't say that very often. I look for big things from Judith Liebeart in the future. Very smart author and two thumbs up from me to her.

The jagged edges of our broken pieces cut deep.
The other day I read in a book that the U.S. Census Bureau sets the years of middle age between 35 and 54. Here I'd been thinking for the past five years that I should stop identifying myself as middle aged. Can I seriously expect to live beyond 90, or maybe if I am really lucky, healthy (or most likely both) 95? Now it turns out I have a whole year left of being middle aged. Who knew?
I like to check out my facts. I couldn't find anything specifically about the range for middle age at the Ce...
