About this title


On a sunny, spring day in 1981, little five-year-old Tara Sue Huffman goes out to play with friends. Her parents never see her alive again.

The story begins with the brutal murder of this child, a crime committed by a thirteen-year-old loner, Timothy Buss. Chronicling Tara and Tim's lives, Kirsch takes readers from the investigation to the trial and punishment. While that would seem like the end of it, it is not.

The horror of this story doesn't stop until Buss, convicted at age fourteen and released from prison at twenty-six, kills again in a near mirror-image of his first murder.

Closely involved with the 1981 investigation into Tara Sue's death and on hand as a reporter for the second case, Kirsch uses her inside knowledge and superb skills in story-telling to take readers on this dark journey.

When Love Is Not Enough is an eye-opener. . .a timely book.

In June, 1999, the U.S. House and Senate voted on Aimee's Law, also known as No Second Chances. Asked to comment on the role Christopher's mom played in getting the bill to the House floor, Congressman Matthew Salmon (R-Arizona) replied: "Compelled by the brutal murder of her son, Christopher, by a paroled killer, Mika Moulton came to Washington, DC...When I first met Mika, she recommended that I read Mary Ann Kirsch's (book) to learn more about Christopher's death, and the monster who escaped the criminal justice system to take her son's life. I was moved by the powerful narrative, as Kirsch delicately takes us through the tradegies endured by the Moultons and the Huffmans. Her uncanny ability to draw you into the hearts and the lives of the families personalizes their tradegy...."
