A story about a young girl in 1950s/60s America who grew up pretty much on her own from the age of 7, having been abandoned by her mother and siblings due to an abusive husband/father and then by her father.
The story covers two timelines, one following the girl as she comes to terms with her abandonment and how she survives, the other dealing with a murder in the town. Really enjoyed it.
The Sun Does Shine, Anthony Ray Hinton's biography.
It's an amazing story about 29-year-old Ray Hinton, a poor black guy in Alabama who was arrested for a murder he couldn't have committed but was convicted and sent to Death Row where he spent 3 decades trying to prove his innocence. It's a story that will have you swinging through all the emotions and seriously highlights the amount of corruption that exists in the US legal/judiciary system.
Just starting "Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine". I know I know I am probably the only person on the planet not to have read this book. I did start listening to it on Audible last year but didn’t finish it. So I’m hoping I’ll get through this one pretty quick.
