The Forbes Family
30 May 2007 | by brazenfireSee all my reviews

I have actually never seen the movie, but I worked with Martha for years. I actually never knew this story until some of the ladies at work were talking about it. She was the sweetest, most down-to-earth woman I have ever met. She never seemed the type to have gone through so much. Her faith in God was so strong, and to be a woman who went through this hell, she never let her faith waver. She never let on that she had received a settlement from the state over the situation, and from what I can gather, she never stopped working to enjoy the money. Her husband came out of prison a different man, and was never the same again. Martha never showed any desire for revenge, and showed nothing but an attitude of forgiveness for all involved.
