Description

Oprah's Book Club Summer 2018 Selection

The Instant New York Times Bestseller

A powerful, revealing story of hope, love, justice, and the power of reading by a man who spent thirty years on death row for a crime he didn't commit.

“An amazing and heartwarming story, it restores our faith in the inherent goodness of humanity.”
—Archbishop Desmond Tutu

In 1985, Anthony Ray Hinton was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder in Alabama. Stunned, confused, and only twenty–nine years old, Hinton knew that it was a case of mistaken identity and believed that the truth would prove his innocence and ultimately set him free.

But with no money and a different system of justice for a poor black man in the South, Hinton was sentenced to death by electrocution. He spent his first three years on Death Row at Holman State Prison in agonizing silence—full of despair and anger toward all those who had sent an innocent man to his death. But as Hinton realized and accepted his fate, he resolved not only to survive, but find a way to live on Death Row. For the next twenty–seven years he was a beacon—transforming not only his own spirit, but those of his fellow inmates, fifty–four of whom were executed mere feet from his cell. With the help of civil rights attorney and bestselling author of Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson, Hinton won his release in 2015.

With a foreword by Stevenson, The Sun Does Shine is an extraordinary testament to the power of hope sustained through the darkest times. Destined to be a classic memoir of wrongful imprisonment and freedom won, Hinton’s memoir tells his dramatic thirty–year journey and shows how you can take away a man’s freedom, but you can’t take away his imagination, humor, or joy.

Customer Reviews

Eye opener to death row

First foremost I want to thank Our Lord for saving this innocent man life. Great book, I would love to meet Anthony some day and give him big hug. I want to apologize for the injustice at your trial for all of the white trash that participated and had a hand at finding you guilty to death.
I’m so curious if you made a point to at least call the idiot prosecutor once you was a free man just to say, I’m Home, lol. Ik he has wrote a book too which I won’t waste my time reading his lies!
You deserve millions and that’s still not enough.

Not Bad

Good Read,, well told story ,, some parts were a little stretched out, but over all,a good read.

Truly inspiring

Anthony Ray Hinton is an amazing person. He lived through 30 long years of unjust imprisonment and yet has not become bitter.
