Description
Information
A collection of heart-wrenching tales of abuse and violence from a writing class of women prisoners, edited by world-renowned 'New York Times' number 1 bestselling author Wally Lamb.

For the past several years, Lamb has devoted himself passionately to working with a group of incarcerated women at the York Correctional Institution. While at first the women distrusted Lamb, each other, and themselves, many of them began to slowly embrace the opportunity to join Lamb's writing class. Over time, they began to express themselves, and this book is the product of that journey into expression.

Some women recount harrowing tales of chronic abuse and rejection by their families, their peers and their societies. The reader learns why some women turned to brutal violence, how others were caught in no-win situations, and how many of the women embrace hope even in the depths of their despair and loneliness.
