This story is about one woman’s mission to find justice for six men she believes were wrongfully convicted in 1995. In the process, she discovers a connection between her past and what happened to these men and why she was compelled to get involved. This book is about surpassing limits, taking a stance, and acting on one’s intuitions through innovation, creativity and humility. It is about overcoming the impossible through collaboration. It develops into a power of wills and never yielding to failure, fueled by compassion and putting others’ needs first. It succeeds in restoring hope. Joan Treppa is a citizen advocate for the wrongfully convicted. She focuses her efforts on creating awareness about wrongful convictions and supports the Innocence Project organization. She is a strong voice for five Wisconsin men (and their families) currently fighting for their freedom. Joan’s book has been selected as winner of the True Crime Non-Fiction category in the 2017 Best Book Awards sponsored by American Book Fest.
