About this item

From one of the greatest legal injustices of our time sprang one of the most unlikely - and unforgettable - love stories. Damien Echols was just eighteen years old when he was condemned to death for a crime he didn't commit. His case - that of the infamous "West Memphis Three" - gained notoriety after a documentary, Paradise Lost, exposed the biased nature of the trial and Echols as the precocious, charming - and tragic - figure at its center. Lorri Davis was a landscape architect living in New York City when she surreptitiously wandered into a showing of the film, and she left forever changed. She, too, was from the South, accustomed to being the outsider in a small town. She saw much of herself in Echols, understood how he could easily have been swept up in a witch hunt, and she couldn't get him out of her head.
