The Sun Does Shine is a captivating autobiography about Anthony Ray Hinton’s journey of being sentenced to 28 years on death row for a crime he didn’t commit. As years go by, Anthony tries his hardest to prove that he was wrongfully convicted, but the system doesn’t allow it. Even through the darkest times, Anthony has hope that he will see the light again. As time flies, he starts to lose hope. Will he ever live a normal life again? I gave this book 5 stars because the emotional rollercoaster throughout the book was so intriguing. It was a really heartbreaking and inspiring book that made me feel like I was on the journey with Anthony. Anthony did well with expressing his emotions and showing us how he still had a sliver of hope through the toughest times. People who enjoy realistic fiction and motivational stories will enjoy this book.
