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.

For the next three decades he was trapped in solitary confinement in a tiny cell on death row, having to watch as - one by one - his fellow prisoners were taken past him to the execution room. Eventually his case was taken up by the award-winning lawyer, Bryan Stevenson, who managed to have him exonerated, though it took 15 years for this to happen. How did Hinton cope with the mental and emotional torture of his situation?

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I have always believed that the choice you make after a traumatic event changes your life forever. I was arrested for robbing and murdering two people, but I was found guilty of the crime by a jury. They wanted to murder me because I had murdered. But they had the wrong guy. #2 I was working the night shift in a locked warehouse when the manager at a Quincy’s restaurant was abducted, robbed, and shot. I was mistakenly identified as the murderer. The police claimed an old. 38 caliber pistol owned by my mother was the murder weapon. #3 I had tried my best to keep my emotions and feelings in check during the trial because I didn’t want to upset my mom. But after the trial, I was still in pain, and I couldn’t bring myself to tell my mom about it. #4 I had a plan. Lester knew it. I knew it. God knew it. And that was all that mattered. I was ready to block out all the sadness and anger that had been rising up through me since my conviction. I would pray again, this time for the truth and for the victims.
