Shakespeare Saved My Life
This book blew me away, and I couldn't stop thinking about it for weeks afterward. Inspiring and encouraging. A secular book with the fingerprints of Jesus all over it. I probably wouldn't hand this one to under-18's.
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Shakespeare professor and prison volunteer Laura Bates thought she had seen it all. That is, until she decided to teach Shakespeare in a place the bard had never been before — supermax solitary confinement. In this unwelcoming place is Larry, a convicted murderer with several escape attempts under his belt and a brilliantly agile mind on his shoulders.
