I read the book from cover to cover and was most impressed. Indeed I learned a great deal that I did not previously know. I thought it to be an excellent piece of work and that it would have been very informative and, to a great extent, comforting had I been in a similar situation to that faced by Emma's parents. Luckily I am incapable of imagining what it must have been like to be Emma herself. How fortunate we are!
