In this moving updated edition of her 2008 publication of Families Behind Bars, Kay revisits many of the prisoners and tells us where and how they have fared since then.These are the real life stories of several families from the UK, Australia, Canada and the United States, all who bear horrendous burdens having loved ones detained in foreign prisons. Kay Danes writes from her own experience of being imprisoned in Laos under false charges and includes her own story in the collection. These stories are true accounts of what can and does happen to ordinary people in our community. Each one is uniquely inspirational, shockingly heartbreaking and will make you appreciate how fragile our lives really are. We are not immune to human rights violations and we cannot afford to take our rights for granted. We may, without any warning, be plunged into a roller coaster of despair! Chapters include interviews with some of the Bali 9, Schapelle Corby and families that have children on Death Row.
