'This book shows just how far, wide, and deep the story has gone’ — Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton

As Lindy mourned the death of her baby daughter Azaria, taken by a dingo from a campsite at Uluru in 1980, she was tried and convicted in the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory. The court of public opinion had already made its ruling, shown in the thousands of hurtful, supportive, accusatory or sympathetic letters Lindy received. The letters featured in this book were painstakingly collected and filed by Lindy over the past 37 years, and include anonymous vitriol, eccentric rants, words of prayer and support, and every other possible response.
