by Maya Moore Irons and Jonathan Irons; Foreword by Bryan Stevenson
An "inspirational" (Kirkus Reviews) tale about a WNBA star and a wrongfully convicted prisoner who after 23 years obtains his freedom with help from Maya. The athlete met Jonathan through her godparents when she was being recruited by top college teams. As the years passed, and Maya embarked on her professional career, the two carried on a correspondence that gradually led to love. Eventually Maya stepped away from basketball to help prove Jonathan’s innocence and inspire activism in others. After his appeal at last brought about his release, they married and began a family.
