What have you overcome in your life? For Southern California native Julienne Burleson, it was a set-up by "friends" that led to her unjust imprisonment in a Third World prision: 

In 1995, Julienne Burleson was just a naive’ Southern California girl living a carefree life of fun in the sun. All of that changed, however, when an acquaintance invited her to Ecuador and asked her to bring back some artwork—artwork that, unbeknownst to Julienne, is filled with cocaine. Thus begins Julienne’s multi-year ordeal in the Ecuadorian prison system.

Chronicling her harrowing journey in vivid detail, Julienne describes what life is like in a third world prison. Yet despite the cruel conditions, Julienne manages to find light, hope, and even forgiveness in the darkest of places.

How can some people live through such an experience without letting prison destroy their minds, while others crumble and are ruined for the rest of their lives? Find out in this inspiring memoir and discover how Julienne refuses to let this horrific experience define her.
