HASH(0xa4ad66a8) out of 5 stars I am at a loss for words Nov. 21 2010
By Joe Foot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
David and Kate Bagby are not human, they are a Force of Nature right up there with lightning bolts and tidal waves.

How someone can go on with their lives after an episode such as this is beyond ANYTHING I have ever witnessed or heard of. David Bagby is a man of remarkable intelligence, resourceful, practical and that shows in his writing. There are no fillers, only a highly detailed description of events and the Canadian judicial system, where the cracks are and how to fix them. You get it all. How the events unfolded, his surprise (and shock) at many judicial decisions but immediately devising a strategy to address them. An engineer in everything, even in the face of this monstrosity.

The Bagby family have become my most recent personal heroes. Their tenacity is simply breathtaking and their endurance to withstand such MASSIVE amounts of pain is something other people can only dream of.

I am not a very religious man. Or lets say, my faith goes through many ups and downs. But I have no doubt that David and Kate went against pure evil. That monster who killed their son and grandson was not sick, was not demented - she was dark to the core, something beyond this natural world. How they kept their sanity after facing it, is something quite remarkable.

HASH(0xa4ad66fc) out of 5 stars Dance with the Devil May 8 2009
By Linda C. Combs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You need to first see the video "Dear Zachary" and then read this book - the book is great and fills in a lot of detail that couldn't be included the video. This is a heart wrenching story that leaves you crying for David and Kate Bagby.

HASH(0xa4ad69d8) out of 5 stars Unimaginable June 27 2011
By Bobbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've watched this documentary probably 6 times in the pass few years. Kate and David are why I keep watching. It's them who I want to see and draw my strength from. Kate and David are one of the strongest people I've ever seen. This film makes me wish I had Andrew as a friend and Kate and David as parents. What they went through is unimaginable. It's a story in a story. To Kurt Kuenne, what a friend you must of been to Andrew. This documentary was done so well, I will never forget.

HASH(0xa4ad6ef4) out of 5 stars A Personal Journey June 7 2007
By Patricia A. Hofrichter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is very personal to my heart since my very good friend is very close to the Bagby family & I am from Pennsylvania where this tragedy took place. David Bagby's writing is very eloquent, considering the circumstance. I hope this story of how the Canadian Government failed this family will help change the laws in Canada. An EXCELLENT read.

HASH(0xa4ad67bc) out of 5 stars David Bagby is a gem Jan. 3 2013
By Margaret G. Tebo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The documentary about the Bagby's travails, "Dear Zachary" blew me away. I had to read David's personal account of this story and it did not disappoint. The Bagby's are extraordinary human beings who personify the terms grace and perseverance in the fact of unfathomable tragedy. Read this book and let it inspire you to get involved.
