It is a work well done for this first novelist Amanda Eyre Ward. Set in Gatestown, Texas, we are invited into the lives of four women on Death Row. The story centres too around two totally different individuals whose lives will be affected by one of these women sentenced to death by lethal injection. We meet Celia a widow who has lost her husband to murder, and Franny a doctor and caregiver, who spends her time with the incarcerated, and of course Karen, who is at the core of the tale

How Do You Forgive When You Can't Forget? by Amanda Eyre Ward. James Ellroy'How do we forgive the unforgivable? First-time novelist Ward explores this question with a delicate blend of compassion, humour and realism-Her spare but psychologically rich portraits are utterly convincing.
A well written novel that centers on three women and the death penalty but tells her not to inhale. and whatever room she happened to be in. Their love for each other shows on their faces.
Amanda Eyre Ward's debut novel is an intimate portrait of three women whose lives collide during a brutal Texas summer. In Gatestown, Texas, Karen Lowens awaits her execution with a host of convicted serial killers on death row. In Manhattan, Dr. Franny Wren, also twenty-nine, tends to a young cancer patient, and resists the urge to run from her fiancé and her carefully crafted life. Over the course of the summer, fate pushes these eerily recognizable women together, culminating in a revelation of the possibility of faith, the responsibility of friendship, and the value of life. Sleep Toward Heaven is a luminous story of murder and desire, solitude and grace - a rare literary page-turner where redemption seems perpetually within arm's reach.
Read full description of the books: Amanda Eyre Ward's debut novel is an intimate portrait of three women whose lives collide during a brutal Texas summer . Ms. Eyre-Ward's style and her characters are memorable, no nonsense and very very real. I look forward to more by this author!! I have read many really good books so far this year, but the hours I spent engulfed in this story and these women's lives were the most rewarding. How do you forgive yourself for the choices you made? Beautifully written and just a spell-binding read.
