Marriage is hard enough but add onto that false imprisonment and incarceration. This was a powerful story, filled with big characters. A strong woman, not willing too settle for less than great. A life long friend, filled with love. A man struggling to find his way after being falsely accused. Jones treated all of these thoughtfully and wove in some additional synchronicity. Very well crafted.
