    What goes through someones mind when they are writing something like this It is an incredible story about a woman I cannot bring myself to call her a mother sorry who has Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy She killed nine of her own babies without detection until the end What was going on with the authorities Anyway do not read this book while pregnant or with young children it'll be far too upsetting

    Reading this book is difficult Marybeth Tinning's story is upsetting in the extreme as she kills baby after baby Egginton tells the story journalistically with little emotion reporting the facts These facts speak for themselves She shows us interviews with the many many people who suspected Tinning of murder and gives us glimpses into the processesIt does make me feel ill to read it but I am fascinaed at the same time

    Creepy as hell very disturbing look at a mother who killed ALL of her babies I was interested in reading because it takes place in Schenectady NY near my sons' homes Couldn't put it down it made me think of this woman and her husband for uite awhile after reading They seemed so normal yet she was a serial killer and he probably knew it

    The story of a motherMary Bethwho kills 8 of her 9 children It shocks me that it took so long for them to actually do something about all the deaths of those babies She loves all the attention she gets when a child dies which I've heard is typical of MSVP she also did work in a medical facility which a lot of the times is the case too Most of the residents who knew her in her small town in New York believed her story of her children having a genetic disorder

    The dispassionate actions of this unwell and sad woman are much disturbing than the bulk of fictional works I've read 4 stars due to the writing and the depth not because it was fun to read

    It's not really possible for me to rate this book it's just too heartbreaking to like I started the story because I was interested to find out what kind of person could do something so horrifying to her children and finished it only with the sense that I could never understand someone like this They defy all logic Marybeth Tinning maintains that she loved her children but if this is true why did she bury all of them long before their natural lives ever would have been over? The only child we can say with certainty that she didn't have a hand in killing was her third child Jennifer and even then it's suspected that the meningitis the baby got in utero that did kill her was caused by Marybeth attempting to induce labor What kind of fractured personality does it take for someone to kill her children and then say with complete certainty that she had nothing to do with it? After reading this book I have uestions about this woman's mental health than the answers I was looking for

    POTENTIAL SPOILERSIt seems odd to give a rating of I really liked it to a book written about the suspicious deaths of 9 children in the same family It was well written by Ms Egginton and that is from where my rating stemsI consider myself a rational person and can only see things from my perspective of rationality I can not possibly fathom how someone could watch child after child die and not want to know why why no genetic testing why did the couple continue having children why did it take 9 deaths before a real investigation was launched?This book doesn't give a great deal of insight into the mind of Marybeth Tinning mostly due to her lack of participation and honesty What can be learned about her is gleaned from former friends co workers neighbors and family members But you can learn a great deal from people's impressions of her and why they all with the exception of her husband and a few family members eventually pull away
