To the Bridge and Best Non-Fiction July 2018

Thank you, Bustle:

"Filicide isn’t exactly a pleasant topic, but Nancy Rommelmann finds a way to make it compassionate in To the Bridge: A True Story of Motherhood and Murder. The book recounts the case of Amanda Stott-Smith, a woman who was convicted of murdering one of her children and trying to kill the other. What is particularly engaging isn’t so much the crime but Rommelmann’s look at why Stott-Smith did what she did."
