A New York Times Bestseller
Jennifer Thompson was raped at knifepoint by a man who broke into her apartment while she slept. She was able to escape, and eventually positively identified Ronald Cotton as her attacker. Ronald insisted that she was mistaken-- but Jennifer's positive identification was the compelling evidence that put him behind bars. After eleven years, Ronald was allowed to take a DNA test that proved his innocence. He was released, after serving more than a decade in prison for a crime he never committed. Two years later, Jennifer and Ronald met face to face-- and forged an unlikely friendship that changed both of their lives.
In their own words, Jennifer and Ronald unfold the harrowing details of their tragedy, and challenge our ideas of memory and judgment while demonstrating the profound nature of human grace and the healing power of forgiveness.

JENNIFER THOMPSON-CANNINO lives in North Carolina with her family. RONALD COTTON also lives with his wife and daughter North Carolina. ERIN TORNEO is a Los Angeles-based writer. She was a 2007 New York Foundation for the Arts Nonfiction Fellow. The authors received the 2008 Soros Justice Media Fellowship for this title.

  • Amazing Book!

    I really enjoyed this read. It was the first book I've read for pleasure in YEARS and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Because the book was written from both Jennifer and Ronald's first hand experiences, it did a great job of expressing the feelings of both characters who were on different sides of the legal system. It was a very touching book and really opens your eyes as to the injustices of our legal system and reminds us how strong forgiveness really is. It also reminds us to keep the faith just as Ronald did while he was serving time for another man's crime. The book really touched my heart and I definitely recommend it.
