I devoured this book in three days but I'm sure that I will reread it perhaps than onceI was moved appalled and deeply troubled by Dead Man Walking perhaps Sister Helen's most famous book This autobiography is very different To me the one downside is the present tense narrative which sometimes gets confusing as Sister Helen sw
