Kirk Stewart, a retired school teacher and a licensed minister of the Gospel, has completed his new book “Living Suspended Lives: A Dark Journey”: an absorbing work about the reunion of a husband sentenced for 262 months in prison and a wife sentenced for 168 months.

Author Stewart tells how much Jack tries to contact his wife despite the difficulty of being in prison: “In reading the Bureau of Prison policy, I found that spouses and immediate family members should be able to write directly to one another. We had been sending letters to Paul, and he would put them in envelopes and address them and mail them to each of us from his house with his return address on the envelope. The catch was we had to get permission. I asked my counselor, Mr. Wren, about it. He called me in a week later and gave me a permission letter to complete. Kara had to do the same thing at her institution. In just a few days, we had permission to write directly to each other. I had continued the practice of writing letters to Kara seven days a week.
I was also able to offer her encouragement about the steps being taken in our legal situation. Paul had already told her, but I was able to write in depth and answer her questions that she had about things.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Kirk Stewart’s story is the continuation of the first book of the “Trouble at Our Door “series. Stewart’s moving storytelling also includes how expensive being subjected to trial and paying for appeal could be, thus adding burden to family members.
