Anthony Ray Hinton spent nearly 30 years on death row for a crime he did not commit, but with the help of civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson (also the author of Just Mercy), he walked out of the Jefferson County Jail as a free man on April 3, 2015. "The sun does shine," he said, as he was embraced by family and friends. The book relates his dramatic journey, and Hinton shows how you can take away a man's freedom yet still not take away his imagination, his hope, his sense of humor, or his joy. An Oprah's Book Club Selection for Summer 2018, this powerful story seems even more timely today.
"An amazing and heartwarming story, it restores our faith in the inherent goodness of humanity."—Desmond Tutu
