Miller distinguished herself as the warden of both the Huron Valley Women's and the Men's prisons in Michigan. In this diary of her 20-year career, she introduces the inmates and staff she met and recounts many of her experiences as a woman in a previously all-male domain. Miller writes with wit and poignancy, yet she leaves readers wanting more. There is a great deal of previously untapped material here, but the author seldom goes beneath the surface to reveal the whys and wherefores of life in corrections. Because of the information it contains, this book should be of interest to criminal justice collections. It is an optional purchase for other libraries.Frances O.
