    An incredible story! My heart hurt for Anthony Ray Hinton, an innocent man with extraordinary patience who sat on death row in a 5x7 ft cell for 30 years. This man missed half his life due to an unconscionable travesty of justice in Alabama?s court system before finally being exonera...

    Beautifully written, I really sunk my teeth into this fascinating story of the wrongful conviction of Anthony Ray Hinton, a young black man who spent 30 years on Alabama's Death Row. His crime? Nothing more than being born black and poor in Alabama. He was convicted of the robbery, kid...

    In 1985 Anthony Ray Hinton was accused of shooting a restaurant manager and of killing other tw0. Despite the fact that he had a solid alibi, and was in fact innocent of all charges, Hinton was found guilty and sentenced to death in Holman State Prison. Hinton was only twenty-nine at t...

    I began reading ?The Sun Does Shine? by Anthony Hinton after my mom told me it was one of the best books she has ever read. After completing the book in less than 3 days, I have to agree it is one of the most inspiring and well written accounts of one man?s journey through advers...

    4.25 stars Thanks to NetGalley and St Martin's Press, and especially to Ray Hinton, for allowing me to read and review this book. Published March 27, 2018. I laughed, I was happy, I cried, I was sad. However to the unread observer you could never have imagined at what points in t...

    Wow. I seriously can not find any other words to express how I feel after reading this book. And even that doesn't do it justice. When I saw this book on here and read the description, I knew I had to read it. The Sun Does Shine is about a man, Anthony Ray Hinton, who was charged and a...

    This book hit me in the gut. Hard. Sure, I?ve read other books about men who have been wrongly convicted of murder and ended up on death row. Yet, somehow, this one put me inside those bars and held me there. Hinton told his story with grace, hope and forgiveness. Imagine for a mi...

    This one was so good! I'm familiar with Bryan Stevenson's work, so it was good to read this one from a death row prisoner's perspective. Ray Hinton is an amazing man and his story is just a travesty of justice in Alabama. I can't believe that it took the state of Alabama so long to ...

    5 ? An inspiring story that just broke my heart.. I literally had tears streaming down my face. This is one of the worst miscarriages of justice I?ve heard of due to the state of Alabama?s racial prejudice. Anthony was arrested, tried and convicted for a crime he didn?t commi...

    POWERFUL AND COMPELLING. ?He was a poor man in a criminal justice system that treats you better if you are rich and guilty than if you are poor and innocent.??from the introduction by Bryan Stevenson (p. ix) ?But pain and tragedy and injustice happen?they happen to us a...

    What makes this book less brutal to read is knowing that Ray walks out of prison and away from the death sentence he was handed as an innocent man. What makes this book more brutal to read is knowing there are many other Rays sitting on death row who may never see that fate. I'v...

    A powerful story that will stay with me for some time. I cannot even begin to put to words how i feel about this innocent man who spent 30 yrs on death row for a crime he did not commit. It should never have happened, but sadly there's no doubt that there are more innocent people curre...

    If you are on the fence about the necessity of the death penalty I suggest you read The Sun Does Shine by Anthony Ray Hinton. If you believe in the need for a death sentence, I also suggest you read it with open eyes and ears. Actually, everyone should read Hinton?s memoir, because i...

    The Sun Does Shine. Wow. What an incredible story. I was outraged just reading the introduction. This is the very personal life story of a man wrongfully accused. I highlighted in my kindle as I read and found that there were just TOO many beautiful lines to highlight them all. At t...

    This is definitely a story that needs to be shouted from rooftops. Reform is necessary. I think the author raised wonderful questions worthy of discussion and attention. He drew attention to the holes in our justice system and those who seem to be railroaded by it. But he also told his...
