Exonerated: A brief and dangerous freedom. Just how free are the wrongly accused once they've been officially proven innocent?

According to Joyce King's Website freedom can be damn complicated:

"The story of a man who stood for something and the woman he loved…

Falsely accused of murdering his girlfriend, James Woodard served more than twenty-seven years in prison. In April 2008, James became the seventeenth man exonerated by DNA evidence in Dallas County. The same day he was granted his freedom, James laid eyes on Joyce King, the 'prison wife' he’d fantasized about falling in love with for nearly three decades. It was the happiest day of his life.

Their mutual attraction was immediate, but a major hurdle complicated their relationship. Joyce was a prominent activist, the first non-lawyer to serve on the board of directors for the Innocence Project of Texas, the nonprofit that helped James win his freedom and ensure justice by working hard to change the compensation law in Texas.

EXONERATED (Order yours Here) vividly details the instant bond James and Joyce shared as soul mates and the challenges that arose when their disparate worlds collided. This riveting account serves as a blueprint for how to navigate innocence and avoid the painful lessons they learned about justice, freedom, power, and love."
