No woman ever expects that they will develop a relationship with an inmate confined to prison for life, and especially not a woman like Bridget Kinsella, but Kinsella does just that. A successful journalist, Kinsella enters prison as a visitor for the first time to help a convicted murderer publish his writing. Her disdain for the women visiting their men in prison soon turns to curiosity, and then, when she becomes emotionally attached to the man she has been visiting, then turns to empathy. This book is her account of the relationships she encountered with not only the man she was visiting, but the women who live their lives in a limbo, with hopes and dreams of someday having the relationship they have always wanted.
