Come spend some time in Richland Louisiana Parish Detention Center, a prison in the Deep South, with Tracey Brown, as she takes you into the lonely and often frightening world of the female inmate. Life as she knew it ended the day she was arrested for identity theft and sentenced to three, ten year sentences to be served concurrently.

When the bars closed behind her, Dr. Brown was suddenly thrown into a world that consisted of a 6x8 foot cell containing a bunk and a rusted out locker. As she cried herself to sleep on that first night, abandoned by her own family and friends, she suddenly realized that she would not be going through this ordeal alone. Finding a bible tucked away in the locker, she quietly asked the prison guard to whom it belonged. "It is yours if you want it," came the terse reply and, having been stripped of all of her worldly belongings, she quickly held this only possession close to her. She had a Bible.

This book is an eye opening documentary of Tracey Brown's days and nights spent in an environment most of us could never tolerate. It is filled with beautiful scripture and exquisite poetry written by Dr. Brown. Every day in jail presents something new to write about and, incredibly, thank her Father, the Lord, for sending her way. Although she spends her days shut off from the rest of the world, she manages to find joy in the smallest of pleasures. Things that we take for granted in our everyday lives, soon become cherished gifts in the austere world of prison. Yet, Ms. Brown finds beauty in all of it.
