A New York Times Bestselling Author
In June 1953, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were led from their prison cells and electrocuted moments apart. Both had been convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage for the Soviet Union. Because of her profound love for and loyalty to her husband, Ethel courageously faced the death penalty for a crime she hadn't committed. Seventy years after her trial, this is the first time Ethel's story has been told with the full use of the prison letters she exchanged with her husband, lawyer, and psychotherapist. Hers is the resonant story of what happens when a government motivated by fear tramples on the rights of its citizens.
