Publisher's Summary

In her senior year of college, asha bandele and a group of other writers went to a prison to read their works for a Black History Month program. There, she met Rashid, a man who was serving 20 to life for murder, a man who spoke softly and wisely, a man who would become asha’s soul mate. This is her account of a relationship that has thrived despite terrific odds.

Critic Reviews

“This is a romantic but realistic story, told with a directness and honesty that makes us know that, however impossible the problems asha and Rashid face, we can question neither her motives nor sanity.” (Booklist)

Fantabulous

Very well written and narrated. I'm ready for part 2. Was this a true story? I finished this in a few short hours.
