A great thriller from Rene Denfeld. I got to meet Rene when this book was released and I was moved to tears when she explained how she wrote this story. I finally got around to reading the book (stupid TBR shelf, ugh) and I am so glad that I did. I love that the outcome of this book has happy parts and realistic parts. You can't live through this kind of trauma and not need mental health help. I can't wait to read more of Rene's work in the future.

I... Don't know what to think of this book. The prose is beautiful. I had to read several selections aloud to hear their beauty. Especially the parts about the wild horses underground running by, causing the earthquakes.

But the story, all of the overlapping stories are morally challenging. This book forces you to contemplate the death penalty, death, and what makes us yearn for death or for life.

It also explores the juncture of understanding, compassion and forgiveness. And that not all three necessarily happen together, nor do they need to in order to form deep human connections.

I have newfound great respect for anyone that does this job, investigating death row cases, with even a fraction of the compassion expressed in this book.
