WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

Marie used to say, 'Faith? What good is it if you don't put it to work like hell for justice?' Marie's soul was so wide. Her spirit so truthful.  All of which kept me sane through many a tortuous ordeal. Thank God we have this book so others can meet her and love her, too."

Sister Helen Prejean

Author, Dead Man Walking

Marie Deans, one of the most compassionate, thoughtful, committed, and humane people I've ever known, hated to be thought of as the 'Angel of Death Row.' The woman you'll meet in this powerful book was not the Angel of Death Row, but somehow miracles flourished in her wake."
