Powerful submitted by ashflowtuff on June 22, 2017, 7:55am This is a powerful memoir of working with some of the most vulnerable, and most resilient, people in our society. I highly recommend it.

Terrific! submitted by evie2017 on August 25, 2017, 6:41pm I adored this book. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in criminal justice. Ford tells an honest and incredibly difficult tale of not only her journey but that of her patients. I heard Dr. Ford talk on the Daily Show about this book, and am so glad I ended up reading it.
