The plot for this book is not only superb, it is a 10-star work. The characters are totally believable and so well written that I can relate to them all. This book grabs your attention and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
If you enjoy medical drama, you’ll love For the Love of God, a novel that accurately depicts what happens when a cult denies sick children lifesaving medical care.
While this is fiction, the novel shows practices that continue to this day.
The novel isn’t anti-religious…it’s against those who would sacrifice innocent children for their beliefs.
An incidental and shocking discovery of a cave with tiny unmarked graves shatters the peace of Exton, a small town in upstate N.Y.
More horrifying is the forensic analysis that reveals that these young children died needlessly as the result of neglect and abuse at the hands of a religious fundamentalist cult that disavows medical care.
Fundamentalists and their political action groups come to the defense of the cult and the parents of the dead children setting the stage for the final courtroom clash to come.
The sheriff, an investigative reporter, the local coroner and two forensic experts from Albany develop the case. When the county DA, a fundamentalist, resists vigorous prosecution, the Governor of New York intervenes and appoints Rosemary and Calvin Brandt to represent the State and speak for the dead children.
The final courtroom clash sets freedom of religion against the State’s responsibility to protect innocent children.
