Summary
When Ann Walmsley was asked to take part in a book club in a mens prison, she was initially anxious: after a violent mugging a few years before, could she really cope being surrounded by violent criminals?
Summary
The prison book club is an eye-opening look at inmates and the penal system, and the possibilities of redemption.
