I have lately been interested in wrongful convictions and abuses of the justice system – I blame Serial and all the other podcasts I’ve listened to since.
Maddy is just getting out of prison for a crime she did commit, but with good reason. She has kept her nose to the grindstone and been a model inmate while she’s been in prison. So she was released early on good behavior. She is ready to get on with her life and forget her past.
Holt was sent by Maddy’s lawyer, who is also a partner in the law firm Holt works at. Holt knows part of Maddy’s circumstances and is willing to overlook them. He sees Maddy as someone who has had some bad experiences in life but is willing to fight for herself and not let her past define her.
Holt has his own reasons for being more closed off and introverted but Maddy ends up dragging his personality out. And Holt helps Maddy to realize that people don’t care about her past and that she is a great worker and woman, regardless of what happened.
An amazing story that just makes you almost weep for the underdog!
