The mother : a novel

Edwards, Yvvette (author.).

Summary

Summary: "Marcias's husband, Lloydie, expresses his tender love for his wife each morning by preparing a cup of tea and setting it by her bedside. This routine was part of the wonderful, secure life they had built, complete with a brilliant and handsome sixteen-year-old son, Ryan. Then the unimaginable happens, and in a single moment Marcia is stripped clean of everything she had presumed was her for keeps. Ryan, not the kind of boy to find himself on the wrong end of a knife, is brutally murdered. Consumed by grief and rage, she is forced to carry the weight of the family's pain. She has to assume the role of supporrter for her inconsolable husband, who has distanced himself and created a secret life. She must also bridle her dark feelings and endure something no mother should ever have to experience: she must go to court alone for the trial of her son's killer, Tyson, another teenage boy. As the trial takes apart her son's life and reassembles it in front of strangers, Marcia, always certain of Ryan's virtues, finds her beliefs and assumptions challenged as she learns more about her son's death and of Tyson's life." --
