Review by Wayne Greenhaw:
…….One of the most electrifying is the quiet but solid grip that Ruth M. McCarty displays in "Not My Son," about two mothers in a Massachusetts town. Hearing about a shooting at their sons' school, with the recollection of Columbine ringing through the dialog and action, they go to the rescue. With a chilling objectivity, the writer carves the details into her story, like a word-sculptor chipping away the unnecessary to build a perfect piece of art. She allows the details to wind down to the final word, which resonates with the reader, who sits and reads the last line one more time. …..
