Back in May I wrote a review of Candace Dempsey’s book Murder in Italy, the story of American student Amanda Knox, who was accused of murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher while she was studying abroad. Amanda’s story reminded me (though on a much smaller scale) of some of my own experiences as a young traveler in Europe.
I was so pleased after writing the story to have Candace leave me a personal comment about my review. Since then, my review and story have been featured on several websites and Facebook pages, including Candace Dempsey’s Facebook page about the book and Amanda Knox & Raffaele Sollecito’s Facebook page.
I’m surprised and pleased that my story is meaningful to so many people, and that it may help as another touch of support in the rebuilding of Amanda Knox’s character.
