Product Description

When Penny Wheat discoverd an old book about the convicted killer James Hanratty, and learned that his conviction might have been unsafe, she found it heart-rending. Recently converted, but trapped in a miserable marriage, she began writing - at first to one prisoner, then another. Soon she linked up with LifeLines, an organisation that set up links to men and women on death row.
Penny - "a demure, middle-class English lady" - learned much about the American system of justice: sometimes excellent, sometimes arbitrary and prejudiced. Her compassion deepened for those prisoners caught up in the grinding penal system. Through her experiences we meet several individuals - creative, thoughtful, patient - all vulnerable, human, and real. This is a gripping account of friendship, faith and humor in defiance of the death penalty.
