"I knew this book [Prosecuted but Not Silenced] was going to be important for me to read – however, nothing could have prepared me for the profound experience of hearing Maralee and Ami’s story. Maralee’s courage to standup and hold the system accountable is a great gift to all of us who are facing similar situations. Maralee isn’t afraid to be vulnerable in her honesty, while using facts and evidence to support her pleas for help."
"This book will break your heart and change your perspective on child abuse and social service, law enforcement and judicial systems. Our civil servants are all too humans, as it turns out, and children seem to suffer almost as much at their hands as at the hands of their abusers. I was surprised to find the system so slow, cynical and expensive and victims so helpless in the weight of it all. I picked up this book, like the other reviewers, meaning to stretch it over the next week but read it in two days’ time, hoping help would come with each new page."
