Claudette Spencer-Nurse, a Brooklyn-born attorney and social justice activist currently working for Habitat for Humanity in Trinidad, where she lives with her husband, Ernest, has completed her book “Memoirs of a Prison Lawyer: Prisoner’s Wife”: a deeply personal reflection on a life spent fighting for justice and the enduring love she found in the unlikeliest of places.

Claudette shares, “This book is more than the successful love story of an attorney who fell in love, married, and had a child with a man serving twenty-five years to life in prison. It is the journey of a lawyer who, against all odds, not only fought to protect the civil rights of men and women in New York City jails and New York State prisons but also a prison wife who fights the system as a visitor. Along the way, she faces hurdles and somehow always manages to come out on top. You will laugh and you will cry as you read about her life, which includes being the ninth of ten children who never felt loved by her parents, joining the Army Reserve for a part-time job ‘that wasn’t worth it,’ to partying with her and her siblings on Rockaway Beach and fighting drug dealers in her apartment building.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Claudette Spencer-Nurse’s book is a stirring autobiography of justice, commitment, and the power of love.
