Die weisse Studentin Jennifer wird nachts von einem Schwarzen vergewaltigt, der in ihr Apartment einbricht, während sie schläft. Bei einer Gegenüberstellung identifiziert sie Ronald Cotton als Täter. Obwohl dieser von Anfang an beteuert unschuldig zu sein, wird er zu "Zweimal lebenslänglich plus 54 Jahren" verurteilt. Jahre später wird der Justizirrtum erkannt und Ronald Cotton kommt frei. Nun fürchtet Jennifer seine Rache. Ängstlich und reuevoll zugleich, beschliesst sie, sich mit ihm zu treffen. Doch die Begegnung verläuft völlig anders als erwartet. "Dieses Buch wird Ihnen das Herz brechen und es dann wieder heilen ... Ein berührendes und wunderschönes Beispiel für die Macht des Glaubens und der Vergebung. Seine Botschaft der Hoffnung sollte weit über die Gerichtssäle hinaus gehört werden."
