Stolen Time by Sunny Jacobs

I spent a rather indulgent couple of hours in bed reading yesterday afternoon, and finished this book. 

It’s an autobiographical book written by a woman called Sunny Jacobs, who was sentenced to death at the age of 28, along with her partner, for the murder of two police officers, a crime they didn’t commit.  Sunny subsequently spent five years in solitary confinement before her sentence was commuted to life imprisonment.  She was finally released in 1992, after an incredible seventeen years behind bars.  Her partner, Jesse Tafero, was executed in 1990.

I saw Sunny being interviewed on television earlier this year, and was so amazed by her story, I just had to read the book.  It is brilliantly written: she is a remarkable woman, and I found the book totally uplifting and inspiring – an unforgettable memoir.
