Early in the decade of 2000, the Department of Human Services of Ellsworth, Maine, Child Protective Division, along with other municipalities, came under scrutiny for their questionable policies and immoderate tactics. Discover how a toothache led to a two-year nightmare for this quiet and law-abiding family. (Well...kinda quiet and law-abiding.)
Sky is a multi-emotion-provoking love story about a mismatched couple and their struggle to save their marriage amidst their valiant battle for custody of their child against this powerful but once highly criticized state agency. An essential book for any parent who has picked up a drink or a drug. Interspersed with actual documents from the case, including brief news clippings, highly personal letters, and court decisions, Mr. West offers in chronological exposé, a passionate exploration and stark contrast to the realities of substance abuse and parenting, with mental illness and morals and with his occasional awareness of a presence of God. Written with wry humor, seemingly at times to mask his own heartbreak, West lays out his perspective with blunt, piercing honesty while allowing the listener to be the ultimate judge.

Learn from someone's mistakes
This is a very sad story, that unfortunately repeats over and over because of bad choices and attitudes. They say that it’s wise to learn from our mistakes, and even wiser to learn from someone else's mistakes. We can learn from these couple’s mistakes and make different choices to avoid what happened to them.
The narration needs to flow more naturally; it’s a little monotone, but I got used to it after a the first couple of chapters.
