Paperback. This is the harrowing story of Lesley Gosch who was sent to Death Row in Texas after being accused, questionably, of murdering Rebecca Patton, the beautiful wife of the President of the Castle Hills National Bank, San Antonio. Through the eyes of the author, a Welsh nun, who began exchanging letters with him and visited him, we experience the reality of life on Death Row: the horrors of the environment; the terrible uncertainty of not knowing exactly when life would be curtailed; and the agony of enduring numerous false alarms. Yet, in the middle of this, Lesley's very disciplined spiritual journey enabled him to have the strength to come to terms daily with his predetermined death, without succumbing to self-pity or long-term despair. His 12yrs on Death Row led him to find a hope and freedom that he had never previously experienced. Lesley was finally executed by lethal injection but wanted his untimely and brutal death to 'witness to the world what is happening here'. 192pp. p/back. V. lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
