Leanne has the capacity to find the humanity within each of the inmates and brings their stories to page after riveting page. She describes their raw, personal journeys without passing judgement. She has been given a gift because of their trust- her gift to us in return is stories that are haunting and challenging...-Sadie Darnell, Sheriff: Alachua County, FLThis is a gritty, street-wise little book with a big heart. It is a full cup for the parched lips of the voice-less. Leanne Lawrence tells from the inside out how hearts shot full of pain may be mended. She tells how the anguished may come to speak not in requiem, rather with hope and thanksgiving. This book will break your heart, and you will mend to be the better for it.-Will Irby, Author and JournalistI like (Leannes) voice in these stories and the way (she) finds a knot of pain (about pit bulls or rape) and holds out to it, rather than quickly unravels it...-Michael Ames: Director/Vanderbilt University Press: Nashville, TNThis book will take you into another world where heart and humor are essential to survival. This wonderful teacher has been our GED Instructor at the county jail for many years and she changes lives every day. Read it! It will open your eyes and your heart and make you laugh out loud!-Ellen West, Ed.D., Principal: Loften High School, Ret.Witnessing Leanne interact with her students is truly remarkable. She has a natural ability to cultivate growth and inspiration in her classroom. Just when inmates think theyre at a dead end, Leanne shows them a road they never knew existed...-Shane Guthrie: Classroom Tutor/Department of the JailBetween Hell and Hope takes the reader to the edge and makes them WANT to jump!-Linda Cue: Alachua County Library District/Former Jail Librarian
