THE REDEMPTION OF BOBBY LOVE: A Story of Faith, Family, and Justice by Bobby and Cheryl Love. Publishers Weekly called it a “moving story of struggle and forgiveness…In parallel narratives from Bobby and Cheryl, secrets are disclosed against the history of their unshakable love….Readers will be awestruck by this inspiring account.”
This is the inspiring, dramatic, and true account of an escaped convict and his wife of thirty-five-plus years who never knew his secret. It captured the imaginations of millions when it hitHumans of New York last fall, and now with this book, the complete story will reach readers across the country. Bobby and Cheryl Love were living in Brooklyn, happily married for decades, when the FBI and NYPD appeared at their door and demanded to know from Bobby, in front of his shocked wife and children: “What is your name? No, what’s your real name?” Bobby’s secret was out. As a Black child in the Jim Crow South, Bobby found himself in legal trouble before his 14th birthday. He became a master thief and soon found himself facing a thirty-year prison sentence. But Bobby outwitted his jailers. He escaped, fled to New York, changed his name, and started a new life as “Bobby Love.” During that time, he worked multiple jobs to support his wife and their growing family, coached Little League, attended church, took his kids to Disneyland, and led an otherwise normal life. Then it all came crashing down.
With the drama of a jailbreak story and the incredible tension of a life lived in hiding, THE REDEMPTION OF BOBBY LOVE shows what it’s like to build a life from scratch, the pain of festering secrets, and the unbreakable bonds of faith and love that keep a family together. These authors have such a lot to say about marriage, about forgiveness, and of course about the possibilities for our prisoners if we gave them a chance.
