It was just another time of enjoying milkshakes and small talk. Neither Debbie Cuevas nor her boyfriend, Mark Brewster, gave much thought to the white pickup truck that had pulled up beside them on the riverfront. Until . . . a revolver thrust through the drivers window . . . a hand jerked Debbies head back and a voice said, "Dont do anything stupid" . . . and a quiet Friday evening abruptly became a nightmare. For the first time, here is the untold other half of Dead Man Walking, the movie that depicted killer Robert Willies death-row relationship with spiritual advisor Helen Prejean. Now the woman whose testimony helped send Willie to the electric chair tells her side of the story--the side America hasnt heard. In gripping detail, Debbie Morris--formerly Debbie Cuevas--recounts her hours of terror . . . and her years of walking an agonizing road back to wholeness. More than a riveting narrative, here is an incredible tale of courage, faith, and forgiveness. In a world where all of us struggle sooner or later with unforgiveness, Debbie Morris is a living testimony to the grace we long for: grace that shines more brightly than we dare believe, bright enough to triumph over the darkest evil.

Recensioner i media

'As Morris calmly describes the horrible ordeal that inspired her beliefs, what emerges is the profile of a woman who is Sister Helen Prejean's equal in strength and virtue.' * Daily Variety * 'Debbie Morris' recollection of her nightmarish ordeal is chilling. But even more memorable is her description of the emotional and spiritual journey she's taken in the 15 years since.' * New Orleans Times-Picayune * 'You won't find Debbie Morris in the film 'Dead Man Walking,' but she is one of the integral characters in the true story behind the movie.' * Philadelphia City Paper *
