The heartbreaking stories of the murders of four girls – and a groundbreaking account of how the girls’ grieving parents brought about changes in the law to ease the unbearable burden for themselves – and for the families of other homicide victims.

These include: the stabbing murder of 5-year-old Nicole Hanns in 1974; the sexual assault and murder of 9-year-old Ebony Simpson in 1992; and the rape and murders of Bega schoolgirls, 14-year-old Lauren Barry and her friend 16-year-old Nichole Collins in 1997.
