This is my review of the book Yours For Eternity, the love letters of a death row inmate.  This book is by Damien Echols and Lori Davis.The book consists of years of letter writing between Laurie Davis  and one of the convicted, Damien Echols who was sentenced to death. Three documentaries on this case proceeded this book.  Three young boys were found murdered in West Memphis Arkansas, three boys were tried and convicted  as teenagers in 1994 of the murders. Shockingly in the1980s and early 90s some convictions were made in the  USA based on satanic panic, this case was one of them. The three teenagers one being Damien was convicted of  the crime, he and the others defendants served close to 18 years before finally being released on an unusual plea deal. These letters are a glimpse into lives of Damien and Lori and resulted in their marriage in prison and ending in  the three convicted being released.   If not for Lori and her supporters freedom for the three convicted would  most likely never have happened.  This brings light to the American death penalty and its potential consequences. The book gives some in-sight  into the very personal lives of the authors that the documentaries do not cover. The whole of this well known tragedy is as odd as any fiction only it was true. An interesting read for people familiar with the case as well as to others just finding out about it.       rsm_bedford

I have been fascinated with the West Memphis 3 ever since I saw Paradise Lost on HBO years ago. I don’t know why but Damien’s story struck me the most. Maybe it’s because he was the only one to be sentenced to death row. I’m not going to get into what/who the West Memphis 3 are. You had to of heard about them to want to read this book in the first place. Now to my actual review of the book. I’m sure there are some people that criticize Lorri for even writing to Damien in the first place, let alone fall in love and marry him. This is Lorri’s life and no one has the right to tell her how to live it. She knew all along that Damien was innocent. I was shocked by some of the letters they choose to share in this book. Some were extremely private and I wouldn’t want anyone to read those if I was in their shoes. Everyone says they want to fall in love and a soul mate. We hear the term soul mate all the time.  Damien and Lorri are true soul mates. They fell in love, and made their relationship work during the hardest part of their lives. I can’t even imagine! If they can make it work and stay together after he was released then it gives me hope that true love is out there for everyone.

Love, magick, sex, eroticism, passion, hope.....vulnerability, suffering, injustice beyond comprehension....joy and heart wrenching agony.....I cried, laughed, and found myself wanting to protect these two people and help them fight the battle they continue to fight. If you think you know the story of the WM3 and have followed Damiens struggle to find justice, you must read this book.

That is exactly what I read in the book overveiw. Just next time you paraphrase something make sure you also have a biblography stating where you got the information so it is not considered plagerism.

Yours for Eternity: A Love Story on Death Row is an exceptional book. Damien Echols was convicted of a crime he didn’t commit and sentenced to death row. After seeing a documentary about Damien, Lorri Davis struck up a correspondence with Damien. Over the years they came to fall in love and even get married – despite not being allowed to ever touch each other. All in all, it is an amazing book.
