Yours for Eternity free pdf From one of the greatest legal injustices of our time sprang one of the most unlikely and unforgettable love stories. Damien Echols was just eighteen years old when he was condemned to death for a crime he didn t commit. His case that of the infamous West Memphis Three gained notoriety after a documentary, "Paradise Lost," exposed the biased nature of the trial and Echols as the precocious, charming and tragic figure at its center. Lorri Davis was a landscape architect living in New York City when she surreptitiously wandered into a showing of the film, and she left forever changed. She, too, was from the South, accustomed to being the outsider in a small town. She saw much of herself in Echols, understood how he could easily have been swept up in a witch hunt, and she couldn t get him out of her head. So she wrote him a letter and when it arrived in Echols s penitentiary cell in April 1996, hers were some of the first kind words of support he heard. Over the course of a remarkable sixteen-year correspondence, Echols and Davis grew to know each other, fall in love, and marry all without ever being able to touch each other freely or be alone together. In "Yours for Eternity," their extraordinary letters provide a singular portrait of their marriage, from the first, heady days of discovery to the final, painful months before Echols s release. Through postscripts and footnotes, Echols and Davis describe how they overcame the enormous challenges and heartbreaks throughout the years personal setbacks, legal complications, and much more. "Yours for Eternity" reveals a relationship unfolding in the most exceptional of circumstances. Powerful and incredibly intimate, it is a modern-day love story for the ages."
