Food for Thought!

For the past week, I've been reading this book, "A Sister's Forgiveness" by Anna Schmidt from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.  Although this has been an extremely long novel (and I'm still not through with it), it has really got me to thinking.  In this novel, two sisters whose families are extremely close are basically torn apart when a tragedy strikes.  When one sister's child is responsible for the other sister's daughter's death, how do you deal with something so tragic.  I've had mixed emotions while reading this book.  I mean, how are you supposed to just go on and pretend as if nothing ever happened as if your daughter's killer isn't family.  Can you turn away from that?  Would you turn away from that?  As much as I would hate sending my niece or nephew to prison, I don't think I can just turn a blind eye to them being the cause of my only child's life.  What would you do...could you go on with your only child dead, knowing that your niece could possibly walk away scot-free?
