  • "[Hinton] is a remarkable storyteller. You will be swept away in this unbelievable, dramatic true story"

    Oprah Winfrey
  • "Anthony Ray Hinton's memoir of his wrongful imprisonment...is a riveting account of the multiple outrages of the criminal justice system of Alabama. But that isn't what makes this a genuine spiritual experience: that comes from the nearly biblical capacity of the author to endure, to forgive, and finally to triumph...his book is a harrowing masterpiece."

    Guardian
  • "A wonderful memoir...A story of forgiveness and struggle - and a story of friendship and imagination"

    Book of the Day, Observer
  • "This incredibly moving chronicle...is one staggering revelation after another, but also a lovely portrait of kindness, warmth and how faith is its own reward...On death row he somehow navigates through his rage and despair to a state of forgiveness and grace."
