Having never had so much as a traffic ticket, Toby Dorr shocked the nation and shattered her appearance of perfection by helping a convicted murderer, a trainer in her prison dog program, escape in a dog crate.
Her story is a lesson in perspective. Instead of focusing on everything she lost, Dorr made a conscious choice to use her twenty-seven months in prison as a period to reflect on her life, heal emotional wounds, plot a course for the future, and embrace the sisterhood of women she encountered behind bars.
Far from easy, her prison sentence was gut-wrenching and devastating. But a revelation during a stay in suicide watch gave her renewed purpose and direction. Moving through drama, action, adventure, heartache, and redemption, Dorr bares her soul and tells a story of heartbreak, courage, grace, and transformation.
While the escape made national headlines and captured the imaginations of an entire country, Dorr’s memoir is an inspirational invitation to look at life with self-acceptance and love. She pushes readers to move beyond the confines of their circumstances and live each moment with conviction, allowing its fullest, most beautiful potential to unfold.
