This is a biography where truth is definitely stranger then fiction! He was accused of murdering his Mother and sister but he does not remember a thing until after he is finally acquitted of the crime 10 years later. I can not imagine what this author went through and how he managed to not only keep his head together but overcame all obstacles and ultimately became a lawyer to help others who, like him, were and are railroaded by the legal system in this country at times. Although I rarely read biographies I will be purchasing the sequel to this book very soon-I can not wait to find out how his career went! 5+ stars for this one-a MUST read. This, so far, is my favorite book of 2013.
About the Book: (from Amazon)
Since 1963, Bobby Wilson has held his tongue in regards to the presumed murder of his family in which he was put on trial. In Bobby’s Trials, he pens an insightful, heartbreaking memoir of the events that led up to the violent deaths of his mother and sister. As he chronicles his early childhood, he reveals what life was like for him growing up as an Oklahoma farm boy with a mother who suffered debilitating depression as well as strange fits of paranoiac rage. An absolutely spellbinding true-life crime drama, this intimate debut proves to be a strangely uplifting anecdote of survival. As Wilson wrestles with clinical amnesia, endures two murder cases against him, becomes a lawyer, and becomes a husband and father, readers have a benchmark in overcoming incredible odds—and proof that justice often is elusive, if it occurs at all.
Book Excerpt:(from Worldwind)
In the early morning hours of June 19, 1963, just four days before he was to leave for basic training, Bobby Wilson was awakened by his mother.
She held a loaded gun to his head and had a crazy, yet familiar, look in her eyes. Alongside his sister, Bobby had suffered her rants for years, but tonight was different. Bobby knew without a doubt that the demons that his mother had struggled with for years had their sights on him.
He realizes he has nowhere to turn and nowhere to run, but he has no idea that the nightmare has just begun. It is a nightmare that changes the course of his life. It is a nightmare that will ultimately take Bobby ten years to wake up from.
