Mary B. Addison killed a baby.
Allegedly. She didn’t say much in that first interview with detectives, and the media filled in the only blanks that mattered: a white baby had died while under the care of a churchgoing black woman and her nine-year-old daughter. The public convicted Mary and the jury made it official. But did she do it?
There wasn’t a point to setting the record straight before, but now she’s got Ted—and their unborn child—to think about. When the state threatens to take her baby, Mary’s fate now lies in the hands of the one person she distrusts the most: her Momma. No one knows the real Momma.
But does anyone know the real Mary?
Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson is not the typical type of book I pick up to read but the premise of this book caught my eye and snagged my interest. I just had to find out what this book was all about.
While this book, for me is of a more darker nature than I usually care to read, the plot had me absolutely spellbound. The characters were so real and so heartbreaking, I never saw the twists and turns of this story coming and they truly blew. me. away!
When I finished reading Allegedly, I came away from it with an unsettling, disturbed feeling and knowing this book will be staying with me for quite awhile.
My final take on this book? Ms. Jackson did a superb job in creating/writing this story and it is so worth the reading!
I received this book for free. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own. Thank you to Katherine Tegen Books and to Edelweiss for the opportunity to read/review this book.
