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, now adapted for younger readers.

In 1985, Anthony Ray Hinton was arrested, charged with two counts of capital murder, and sentenced to death. Stunned, confused, and only twenty-nine years old, Hinton knew that he was innocent and that the truth would prove this and ultimately set him free.

He spent his first three years on Death Row in silence—angry and full of hatred for all those who had sent an innocent man to his death. Slowly, Hinton 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, and with the help of attorney Bryan Stevenson, Hinton won his release in 2015.

The Sun Does Shine is an extraordinary testament to the power of hope sustained through the darkest times, now adapted for younger readers.
