A literary confessional novel that deals with tough stuff and romance, told through letters to a death row inmate that is by turns chilling, moving, and extremely funny, from the award-winning author of My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece
Dear Mr. S. Harris,
Ignore the blob of red in the top left corner. It's jam, not blood, though I don't think I need to tell you the difference. It wasn't your wife's jam the police found on your shoe ...
Zoe has an unconventional pen pal—Mr. Stuart Harris, a Texas death row inmate and convicted murderer. But then again, Zoe has an unconventional story to tell. A story about how she fell for two brothers, betrayed one of them, and killed the other.
Hidden away in her backyard shed in the middle of the night with a jam sandwich in one hand and a pen in the other, Zoe gives a voice to her heart and her fears after months of silence. Mr. Harris may never respond to Zoe's letters, but at least somebody will know her story—somebody who knows what it's like to kill a person you love. Only through her unusual confession can Zoe hope to atone for her mistakes that have torn lives apart and work to put her own life back together again.
