Picking Cotton

Author: Jennifer Thompson-Cannino and Ronald Cotton with Erin Torneo
Stars: 3.5
Review by: Tartu

This is the story of a woman who was rapped in 1984, identified her rapist who was sentenced to life in prison. He maintained his innocence and while in prison found the man who actually committed the crime. After his release, Jennifer contacted him and he publicly forgave her and now the two fight for prisoners who feel they have been wrongly convicted. The capacity Ronald Cotton has to forgive and the humbling effect Jennifer says it has on her are just not felt enough in the final chapter of the story.
