    The Tragedy and the Truth. Has anyone read this book? I had never seen it and got it on Ebay for $8, I seen it on Barnes and Noble from $50-$250!

    I've got it and IMO you got ripped off!
    It was written by Patsys friends so it's very biased. Didn't you know Patsy was actually Mother Teresa in disguise?LOL! But since there are so many books written the other way I guess it's only fair to have the other side of the story. It's a really good source for photographs since Patsy cooperated with this book she gave up some good ones. Read it and write us a review, ok?

    coloradokares I have this book and if you like I would be more than happy to send it to you to read. I would like it back eventually but there would be no hurry. It's just that I have a collection of all the JB books and I'd like to hang on to it but I would be happy to lend it to you if you want to read it.

    Well I only paid $9 for it so thats not really being ripped off. I seen it as low as $50 being sold up to $250. I was just wondering how rare it was.

    Michelle I didn't mean that to sound derogatory to you. I think I meant it more of a joke or a figure of speech. Sorry if I was dumb enough to put it that way. I don't even remember what I paid for mine but it was probably more than $9.00.

    Oh I think most any JB book is good because there are so few we are fairly starving for them. It is positive for Patsy but knowing that going in it is easy to read. I've never thought Patsy was a bad person. I do think she did something bad though. The pictures alone make this book worth a look. There are some stories in there you will never hear anywhere else so that makes it worth a read also.

    Maybe it's signed by Patsy.

    Trixie, If you were willing to, I would love to read the book you speak of. I'm very interested to hear what Patsy's friends have to comment. I'd be willing to pay for the shipment fees and I'll send it back to you as soon as I finish reading it.

    Trixie if you would be so kind to send it to Mrs_Norwood I can wait. I feel that she spoke for it first and I will get another copy or wait my turn. Thanks CK

    Difficult question as to how 'bad' a person Patsy was.
    I believe she unintentionally killed her child in rage attack. Imo no one can say it could not have happened to them also. For theoretically, one push or shove can have deadly results.
    But to save her hide, Patsy later threw innocent people under the bus.
    Suppose the worst had come to the worst and one of the bus victims had been falsely tried and convicted of murder, could Patsy have lived with that? Do you think she would have let this person go to jail full well knowing that it was a miscarriage of justice?

    I think she and JR both would have let someone else meet their death for it...from someone actually being executed,to letting someone like the sickly Santa Bill die in prison.
    I don't know exactly what label to give it...sociopathic..narcissistic or what..but their behavior time and again speaks volumes of nothing but self,self,self.And I think she and JR each would have not hesitated to turn on each other had it been to their own benefit.
    From that,I have no problem believing there was possible molestation going on.After all,it's all about them.
    something to ponder:

    When the corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and the mortal have put on immortality, then shall we be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?

    The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law.
    But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    1 Corinthians 15:54-57
