Agnes had always been a submissive wife and remained dedicated to her marriage despite enduring over fifty years of abuse. Guilt and shame led her to hide the abuse. If her secret was discovered, circumstances would have escalated. Her dai=ughter knew the truth, but believed the violence had stopped. One last act of cruelty pushes her to the brink of despair, and murder.
Learn the truth about Agnes' life through a riveting courtroom drama, as her sucessful daughter, fiery sister and s dedicated lawyer refuse to allow a rosecutor who is hell-bent on sending Agnes to live the remaining years of her life in prison.
Janet Dudley has provided a brilliant portrayal of the lives of victims of domestic abuse. Ms. Dudley has written a novel that will keep readers on the edge of their seats as they get a look inside the chilling effects of domestic violence. I encourage abused victims to read Mama's Last Chance so that they might save themselves and their family from breakdown.
JUDGE GREG MATHIS
"James just laid there, starin' and bleedin' and barely makin' a sound. I kind of looked at him in all that pain. I left my husband on that floor, moaninn'...I just laid my head on the table and watched James,who looked like each breath he strained to take would be his last one. His eyes were closed as he laid there. All of a sudden, James opened his eyes and stared me straight in my eyes. He didn't say nuthin'. I didnt know what to say. To say I was sorry didn't seem like quite enough, so I didn't say a thing. I just watched him as he watched me. After what seemed like a long time, I realized James was not watchin' me. He was dead."
