Críticas:

"A courageous, eloquent, and devoted mother...gives us all a greater understanding of Matthew and the larger meaning of his life."--Senator Edward M. Kennedy
"Gives us a chance to know the young man whose brutal death started a movement that inspired the enactment of the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Law. Raw, honest and real, with some surprising new details never before published."--Kathi Isserman, Curve Magazine
"Shepard writes in a quiet, graceful voice about love, acceptance, and having a hole in one's heart the size of a missing child... While Matthew became a national symbol for homophobic victimization, for Judy Shepard it is the story of a mother and the tragic loss of her son."--Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide

Reseña del editor:

-A courageous, eloquent, and devoted mother...gives us all a greater understanding of Matthew and the larger meaning of his life.-
-Senator Edward M. Kennedy

Today, Matthew Shepard is synonymous with gay rights, but until 1998, he was just Judy Shepard's son. In The Meaning of Matthew, Judy Shepard confides how she handled her crippling loss in the public eye, the vigils and protests held by strangers in her son's name, and ultimately how she and her husband gained the courage to help prosecutors convict her son's murderers.
Heart-wrenchingly honest, The Meaning of Matthew is an unforgettable and inspiring story, chronicling one ordinary woman's struggle to cope with the unthinkable.
