Sweet Hell on Fire: A Memoir of the Prison I Worked In and the Prison I Lived In

Sara Lunsford


"A gritty, uncooked, and engrossing voice."—Publishers Weekly

I was once a nasty mother,
a nasty daughter,
a nasty spouse, a foul friend.
Boozed out and tired,
with out dreams
and no destiny.

But i used to be a superb officer.

Sara Lunsford helped cage the worst of the worst, from serial killers to intercourse criminals. on the finish of each day, while she walked out the criminal gate, she needed to attempt to shed the horrors she witnessed. however the darkness invaded every little thing of her existence, irrespective of how a lot she attempted to immerse herself in a liquor bottle. She could not disguise from the issues that damage her, the issues that made her bleed, the issues that also get up at the hours of darkness and choke her.

With a magnetic, uncooked voice that you just will not quickly disregard, Sweet Hell on Fire grabs you by way of the throat and does not allow pass. it is a hardscrabble climb from all-time low to the hot flooring of a lady who is familiar with the that means of sacrifice, the enjoyment of redemption, and the quiet haven to be present in desire.
