Wow. How terrifying because this story could so well be true...... What a tragedy. It was a nice conclusion to hear that finally medical advances proved his innocence, but that little bit of realism about how he'd explain 12 missing years was so true. This was a gripping read but really sad ... which is not a criticism ... it is a great piece of writing that highlights a very real social wrong. Thanks for sharing it.
So many of us face this battle for truth but not necessarily in such a daunting way. Your story pinpoints so many similar stories. Thank God for DNA and thank God for your clever writing highlighting this problem.
Kathy, wow, this is very strong writing. When I first read it, I thought the author had to be a man (who probably had spent time in prison himself, or at least knew people very well, who had been.) It's so different to your other historical/Biblical fiction. It's really very good. You have a wide range of talent. I'm impressed.
