Secret Life Of A Juror: Voir Dire, The Domestic Violence Query by Paul Sanders is a moving story that comes to life when the author is invited to become a juror in a murder trial. As such, he has to undergo a 'voir dire' which means answering a number of questions to qualify for the duty. Two questions pop out at him; whether he had ever experienced domestic violence in his household, and whether he had ever been incarcerated longer than thirty days in his whole life. Opting to tell the truth, Paul Sanders is confronted by a childhood he wished he could forget. The son of a prominent doctor in Michigan, his family lived in a beautiful house and, from the outside, it looked like a dream childhood. The truth, however, is a shocking tale of child abuse that would leave any child deeply scarred for life.
Paul Sanders' Secret Life Of A Juror: Voir Dire, The Domestic Violence Query strongly tugs at the reader's heart and it is one of those books that will always stay in our minds and hearts. Two little boys and one little girl go through an abusive childhood and people around them don't notice or perhaps some of them don't really care. And for a true story like this to happen in a first world country sends chills down my spine. The story unravels innocently enough when multi-award winning author Paul Sanders is invited to become a juror, but what follows is a tale that is both gripping and heartbreaking. Vivid and concise, Secret Life Of A Juror is surprisingly objective and I think this is what makes the story highly credible and remarkably powerful!
