Summary
How far would you go for love? Some women commit crimes to help their lovers; others spend years on the run. Tanya Levin gave up her career as a prison social worker to pursue romance with an inmate. From her first day on the visitor's side of the fence, she became a crimwife. Some women make the leap in the chaos of their loved one's arrest; others, like Levin, choose a relationship knowing the stakes. In her years as a crimwife, Levin met women of all ages and backgrounds who lived behind invisible bars, stuck in the house awaiting their daily six-minute phone call. In Crimwife, she tells their stories, and her own, with honesty, black humour and an insight that can only come from experience
