The Sun Does Shine
A really great book. Full of emotions all through the book. Further proof that the system is broken. It took to long to prove he was innocent and that is so sad.
The MOST compelling story I have ever read! The strength & love that this man shows after all these years is breathtaking!
Thank you Ray
One of the most moving stories I have read.
Thank you Oprah for recommending this book.

By Pray for justice
A stark tale of injustice yields to regained hope and the choice to live with grace. A sad reality of the inequality of class, race and poverty that begs for understanding and reform. Ray tells a story you need to read.

Should be mandatory reading in every high school and college.
Especially in Law school !
The Sun Does Shine is an unforgettable, haunting story of a terrible injustice that was done to a black man from Alabama, Ray Hinton. In 1985 Anthony Ray Hinton was convicted of a crime he didn’t commit and sentenced to die by execution. Ray spent nearly thirty years on death row before the state of Alabama admitted that they had made a mistake, and set him free. Although evidence and a polygraph test had proven Ray to be innocent of the crime, that he was accused of, he sat on death row for thirty years, anyway.
This memoir is heartbreaking and brought me to tears several times. When Ray Hinton decided to stop hating the people who put him on death row, his life and those around him began to change. Ray adopted his inmates as his new family and brought inspiration, laughter, and faith to everyone on his cell block. Even the guards couldn’t help but like Ray Hinton.
Although this story was difficult to read because of the terrible injustice, done to an innocent man, it’s a powerful novel; moving and unforgettable. This story will stay with me for a very long time.
Thank you St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
