A truly inspiring and heart-breaking book from the mother of little James Bulger—whose murder by two young boys shocked the world.
On 12th February 1993, Denise’s life changed forever. As she was running errands at New Strand Shopping Centre, she let go of her two-year-old son’s hand to take out her purse.
Denise never saw her son again.
In this extraordinary and heart-wrenching audiobook comes the unflinching account of that terrible day from James Bulger’s mother, Denise. What if she had never taken James shopping? What if she had turned right coming out of the butchers, instead of left? Would she have seen her son being led out of the centre by two children?
This is a mother’s tale, of finding a way through the despair to remember the happiness and wonderful memories that James brought his family. Above all, Denise doesn’t want her son to be remembered as a murdered child, and with this beautifully written audiobook she does just that.
