“There is an invisible thread that connects those destined to meet.”Cindy Sanford owned a gift shop/art co-op. One fateful day the co-op’s woodcarver, John, approached Cindy with a unique piece of wildlife art painted on a leaf. Cindy, and the other artists, were astounded not only by the beautiful art but by the artist’s story as well – the artist, Ken, was serving a life sentence with no hope of parole for his involvement in a double homicide. Ken did not pull the trigger. Ken was 15 [...]

Ouch! Or: Confronting Your Core Beliefs This was an extremely hard book to read. Not because it was not good, but because of the way it forced me to confront my deeper beliefs. It was somewhat painful, and honestly cost me some sleep as I lay at night thinking it over. It's what a really great book should do, shake you out of your routine and make you think. Let me set up the general premise of the book for you. The author is your normal everyday middle-class citizen, happily going about her lif [...]

Last year a heartbreaking story where the juvenile justice system and Mormonism intersect crossed my path. Through a connection I met a bishop’s wife in Pennsylvania who wrote her story of befriending a young man on life without parole (LWOP). Cindy Sanford is a conservative Mormon whose art shop included some works of Ken Crawford, a local prisoner who painted wildlife portraits on fallen leaves he’d found out in the prison yard. When her shop closed she wrote Ken to let him know she could [...]

Beautiful storyMrs. Sanford's story of how Ken came into her life and the relationship she and her husband developed with this young man who was sentenced to life in prison as a young teenager is simply astounding. It is a truly touching account, and makes one consider his or her views about others who are found guilty of committing terrible crimes, - those who are normally dismissed without a thought as "hardened criminals not deserving of basic human needs." I must say that I am inspired to lo [...]

XXX This memoir was a gift from the author. I postponed reading this story, afraid it was a real downer - how could it not be? This is the story, told partially through correspondance, between an Christian woman, a middleaged empty nester, and a young man who received a sentence of life without parole for a murder that happened when he was 15 years old.And I was totally wrong. this book is an affirmation of the goodness lying loose in the world, the inherent kindness of strangers, the need to bo [...]

What a great book! It was a very heart warming story about Ken and Cindy's family. It was a an eye opener to our justice system and how we shouldn't be so quick to judge anyone. I really enjoyed all the details and an inside look into visiting someone that is sentenced to life. Great read and wonderful story!

DNF. Not a bad book, it centers around a topic I've never really thought much of before and that's great. However, it just didn't keep me interested enough. Maybe it just wasn't the right timing for me, and I'll consider picking it up again some other time.
