Identical twins Marisa Readus and Alisha Readus announce their new book entitled "Where Does Peace Come In? Breaking Through The Bars," scheduled for release on June 10, 2007, and available online at "Where Does Peace Come In" is an autobiography about the twins' lives behind bars and addresses the issues of homelessness, domestic violence, and incarceration. This book chronicles their rough early start, their life of incarceration, and their ultimate triumph.

According to the Readus sisters, "people often view freedom as a physical thing, but we don't think so. We know how it feels to be bound by depression, material possession, sex . . . " This book will change the lives of many people, note the Readus sisters. "It is truly inspirational, and it speaks to women who are headed down the same path that we took. However, the book is not pointing fingers or blaming anyone."

While many inmates returning home from prison bring their negative prison experiences with them, the Readus sisters discover that exposing their lives before, during and after their incarceration through writing is an outlet for deliverance, healing and forgiveness.
