I read Jamie Arpin-Ricci's novella some time ago. In it, he tells the story of two moms. One the mom of a murder victim, the other the mother of the man convicted for her death. The book opens with his execution. It tells of both women's hunger for justice and struggle to move past the tragedy that gripped both their lives. It is the sort of book you read in one sitting. It's short. But also compelling and gripping and rooted in Arpin-Ricci's own advocacy work for ending the death penalty. Listening to Patricia Santomasso's narration is every bit as engrossing as the novel itself. She is utterly convincing as the novel's narrative voice (both women in turn). This book will hit you right in the feels and has a larger afterward than the print edition I have on kindle (including an interview with a mother of a man executed on death row.
