Product Details


“A courageous, eloquent, and devoted mother…gives us all a greater understanding of Matthew and the larger meaning of his life.”—Senator Edward M. Kennedy

“Gives us a chance to know the young man whose brutal death started a movement that inspired the enactment of the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Law. Raw, honest and real, with some surprising new details never before published.”—Kathi Isserman, Curve Magazine
“Shepard writes in a quiet, graceful voice about love, acceptance, and having a hole in one’s heart the size of a missing child… While Matthew became a national symbol for homophobic victimization, for Judy Shepard it is the story of a mother and the tragic loss of her son.”—Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide
