In one horrible act of violence he destroyed her life. In one incredible act of grace, she forgave him. It was just another time of enjoying milkshakes and small talk. Neither Debbie Cuevas nor her boyfriend, Mark Brewster, gave much thought to the white pickup truck that pulled up beside them on the riverfront. Until . . . A revolver thrust through the driver's window . . . A hand jerked Debbie's head back and a voice said, "Don't do anything stupid". . .and a quiet Friday evening abruptly became a nightmare. For the first time, here is the untold other half of Dead Man Walking, the movie that depicted killer Robert Willie's death-row relationships with spiritual advisor Helen Prejean. Now the woman whose testimony helped send Willie to the electric chair tells her side of the story--the side America hasn't heard. In gripping details, Debbie Morris -- formerly Debbie Cuevas -- recounts her hours of terror . . . And her years of walking an agonizing road back to wholeness. More than a riveting narrative, here is an incredible tale of courage, faith, and forgiveness. In a world where all of us struggle sooner of later with unforgiveness, Debbie Morris is a living testimony to the grace we long for: grace that shines more brightly than we dare believe, bright enough to triumph over the darkest evil.
