Letters from Prison: Voices of Women Murderers, is a first-ever compilation of letters solicited through direct correspondence with women who have been condemned for murder. In the women's own words, they detail their backgrounds and what drove them to their crimes, and they comment on their current mindsets. The women's stories shed light on the common traits - and the profound differences - that may exist between female perpetrators. Each woman offers a different perspective, but most shared shockingly difficult childhoods, filled sadly with neglect, sexual abuse, and drug addictions. The words of these women haunt and transfix even the most skeptical reader. In the end, the reader will find it impossible to deny the "human character" of these condemned women.
