Oprah's Book Club Summer 2018 Selection The Instant New York Times Bestseller A powerful, revealing story of hope, love, justice, and the power of reading by a man who spent thirty years on death row for a crime he didn't commit. “An amazing and heartwarming story, it restores our faith in the inherent goodness of humanity.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu In 1985, Anthony Ray Hinton was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder in Alabama. Stunned, confused, and only twenty–nine years old, Hinton knew that it was a case of mistaken identity and believed that the truth would prove his innocence and ultimately set him free. But with no money and a different system of justice for a poor black man in the South, Hinton was sentenced to death by electrocution. He spent his first three years on Death Row at Holman State Prison in agonizing silence—full of despair and anger toward all those who had sent an innocent man to his death. But as Hinton realized and accepted his fate, he resolved not only to survive, but find a way to live on Death Row. For the next twenty–seven years he was a beacon—transforming not only his own spirit, but those of his fellow inmates, fifty–four of whom were executed mere feet from his cell. With the help of civil rights attorney and bestselling author of Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson, Hinton won his release in 2015. With a foreword by Stevenson, The Sun Does Shine is an extraordinary testament to the power of hope sustained through the darkest times. Destined to be a classic memoir of wrongful imprisonment and freedom won, Hinton’s memoir tells his dramatic thirty–year journey and shows how you can take away a man’s freedom, but you can’t take away his imagination, humor, or joy.

Walk with me through my own personal emotions and experiences I have had in my life as I go through the anticipation, fear, hope, excitement, and disappointment at each turn of events. The exhilaration of victory and the anguish of defeat for each of those moments. How I was able to identify the good and removed the toxic from my life. My main goal with writing this book is to offer a new approach to those that feel stuck and want to try something new. What works for some people does not necessarily work for others and I wanted to offer another option to those in need. Most importantly, I wanted to help those in abusive relationships either physical or mental a means to help identify that and take the steps needed to free themselves with confidence. Come with me to explore a fascinating process of communicating with yourself and others. A step by step process that leaves nothing ignored, pushing things to resolution so a decision can be made. Set boundaries, stop vicious circles, create and design a process for each moment that needs one while still working with each other as you come to consensus. Encouraging unconditional honesty, trust, clarity and accountability with yourself and each other.
