When I finally got this book from the library, I was certainly as intrigued as I've ever been to begin reading a book. It explores the story behind the friendship of a woman who was raped and the man whom she falsely accused and thereby condemned to prison for a decade. Although the writing was pretty simplistic and nothing to rave about, the story kept me reading. The things that both this man and his accuser endure throughout this ordeal can make you question justice and a purpose in life...but the grace, love and fogiveness that this man maintains will remind you that God does exist and that mercy and justice are available for all, even if not in this life.
If you're having trouble forgiving someone who's slighted you, read this book!!
