Absolutely 5 stars!

Follow Kristin through her 17 year sentence. Meet several different women and their experiences. After stealing almost $500,000 and becoming a stumbling alcoholic, she ends up losing her husband and kids in exchange for almost 2 decades of life behind bars.
Throughout her 17 years in prison, she meets many women and we get introduced to their stories as well. Going through the years with these women was heart wrenching at times, sickening at others. This is a very good portrayal of people spending years in prison.
Having worked in a prison myself, I had a different take on this story than I think most people will. I thought the author did a very good job of showing us the inside of “being on the inside”. It is a lot different than people think, and Kim Cano obviously did her research. She also did a wonderful job at showing us the effects on the family members. Everyone reacts differently to someone they love being incarcerated, and Ms. Cano showed this extremely well in her story. Good Job! A 5 STAR read here!!
