Just one person can save the children from a terrifying future. But to do so, she must master her past. Beth Wright, a newspaper reporter, is hot on the trail of a story that could expose something very ugly at the St. Clair Children's Home. Someone else is hot on Beth Wright's trail--someone who wants to make sure her story never sees the press. Between them stands Nick Hutchins, a social worker who finds his own gut hunches about the children's home increasingly confirmed, first by Beth's investigation . . . then by a high-speed attempt on her life . . . and finally, by an intruder's startling confession. As the drama unfolds, a horrifying picture emerges of helpless children under the sway of a modern-day Fagin. Just one person holds the key that can save them: Beth herself. But using that key could cost Beth her reputation . . . if it doesn't first cost her life. Presumption of Guilt is a gripping portrayal of the depths of human evil, the soul-twisting influence of lies . . . and of the liberating power of truth and the far-reaching freedom of God's mercy and grace. Presumption of Guilt is book four in the Sun Coast Chronicles by award-winning author Terri Blackstock. From absorbing legal drama to lightning-paced action, the Sun Coast Chronicles offers suspense at its finest, tempered with remarkable realism and penetrating insights into the human heart.

I really liked this book.
I think this book really opens your eyes to the horrors that some orphans and abandoned children can go through. Even though this book is fiction it doesn’t mean that similar situations might not happen in real life.
I loved reading about Beth’s story and why writing about the crimes happening in the children’s home was very personal to her.
I loved reading about how she struggles with accepting herself and seeing herself worthy and redeemable but eventually she is able to forgive and let go of the hatred in her heart and fully let God love her.
I was extremely happy with how the book ended and how Jimmy and Lisa finally got a good, healthy and happy family.
