The incredible true story of a lie, love and loss.
If the measure of a good book is its afterburn, Access Denied is a great book.
Thought-provoking, honest, extraordinary, revealing. A true story of a discovered lie and the fallout that followed. A damning indictment of the Child Support Agency and Family Courts.
