Verna McFelin, MNZM
A fascinating memoir from the wife of a prisoner and how her family survived outside the prison wire. Riveting from start to finish… the incredible story of how a woman and her family survived poverty and injustices, and yet received miraculous provision. Her meeting with God through a “Damascus experience,” and how God turned a terrible situation into one that changed the face of the justice system in New Zealand and the world.
Verna’s and her children’s lives changed forever when police knocked on her door one evening and her husband was arrested for a kidnapping, then tried and sentenced to eleven years in jail. While visiting various prisons over the next few years, Verna soon realised that not only were the prisoners serving a sentence, but the families were also serving their own invisible sentences outside the prison wire. This book is great for groups of new Christians developing their walk.
