I heard an unusual news item on the radio tonight during my drive home that would make an interesting premise for a novel. Jennifer Thompson-Cannino accused Ronald Cotton of rape and Cotton spent 11 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. He has since been released based on DNA evidence. Unbelievably, the two developed a friendship in the process.
Ronald Cotton: "...we were the victims of the same injustice by the same man, and this gave us a common ground to stand on. Together we were able to help each other heal through a shared experience."
Forgiveness has long been a popular theme for novels.
