This book tells quite a story! Anthony Ray Hinton chronicles his experience spending nearly thirty years wrongfully convicted on Death Row. It's a shocking story of resilience and injustice, though never without hope. I am not sure how someone could get through something like that and seem like such a positive person, not allowing himself to be weighed down by (rightful) resentment or anger. I'm sure The Sun Does Shine will stay with me for some time to come. It's a break from what I usually read and though it wasn't easy, I'm glad I did! Recommended!
