Samenvatting

When Truus Geraets meets Dawud at the Jackson Prison in Michigan in 1979, he has already served ten years of his sentence. But the two feel an immediate connection; they rejoice in the fact that fate has brought two people of such different backgrounds and circumstances together-Dawud in a prison in America, having grown up in a dysfunctional family, and Truus Geraets, born and raised in the Netherlands in a family guided by spiritual principles.
In Love in Action, the author speaks frankly about the reality of waiting for thirty years for a true soul mate who spends most of those years in prison. She tells of her personal engagement in his transformational process from a career criminal into a person who has a burning desire to give back to society.
Dawud's letters to Truus present the true essence of what it means to be an "inmate" and a "number." In addition, Geraets exposes the disaster of a prison system in America which incarcerates more people than any other country in the world. Love in Action demonstrates that true transformation is possible and communicates hope instead of fear.
