“Former prison chaplain, Louise Stowe-Johns, opens us to discovering meaning and grace in the life of one condemned to death. It is revelatory reading for those who are willing to gain insight into the devastating effects of spousal abuse and its coercive control. Her book also is a glaring indictment of a justice system that has failed to address the harm and ramifications of such control, and it raises urgent questions about the morality and efficacy of imprisonment and the death penalty.”
– Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking
This book chronicles thirty-eight years of the author’s relationship with death-row inmate Judy Neelley.
