ABOUT LOVING A MURDERER - 10/31/23

We should have been told what their crimes were and why they didn’t seem to impact the relationships. Without this background it’s hard to take this “love” seriously.

Are the kids alright?

I appreciated the storytelling around Sharlene and Blake’s story, but I felt it lacked a full integrity without addressing what was going on with Sharlene’s daughter. We learned she was a young child; we learned about Sharlene’s addiction; we learned that Sharlene was spending pretty much all day, every day with Blake at the prison for years. And I just kept wondering: who was taking care of this child, and does she find this story quite as sweet as we’re supposed to?
