    One thought on “Life After Billy”

    1. . .I WISH I HAD KNOWN JANE AND PERHAPS WE COULD HAVE TALKED AND HELPED HER THROUGH HER ISSUES.I HOPE HER SONS CAN HAVE THE HAPPY HEALTHY LIVES SHE WANTED FOR THEM I KNOW THERE ARE SICK BASTARDS OUT THERE BUT I WOULD REPORT THEM IF I KNEW,THE PROBLEM WAS THEN THAT THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT BUT HOPEFULLY FOR THOSE BEING ABUSED TODAY THE COURTS WOULD SEE THROUGH THE ABUSERS AND THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN WOULD GET JUSTICEE RESTRAINING ORDERS AREN'T WORTH THE PAPER THEY ARE WRITTEN ON TO THOSE KIND OF PEOPL [...]

    2. I found this to be not as detailed as the first book. Then again, it's really a different tale. I feel bad for all the crap she put up with and all the other crap she let people laud over her. Her newest husband sounds like a bastard, and even though he wasn't abusive, how he cut out her family after her death really made me angry.

    3. I enjoyed this book and wished I could talk to her and comfort her somehow. The choices she made after he was gone disappointed me. But life doesn't always go the way we want.
