it was amazing
Read in July, 2012

Powerful, thought provoking, well written. One of the best in a while. The characters were well defined with physical and emotional detail, the predicament of being on death row was one of those things we rarely think about and yet drawing the reader in. It reminded me of seeing a horrible accident where your pulse races and you know there is blood, you don't want to look but you want to know "what happened? are they dead?"

I had not read this author before and I must say that I am not a big fan of the change in POV as to each character but I did get past that, obviously because of my rating.

The ending was not at all how I thought it was going to end and yet, so strong and made quite a statement.
