Prison Dramas have always been interesting to me, to be locked up without the chance to be released, To receive insight on what when so wrong in these peoples lives to have ended up in prison in the first place, so when I saw this book it immediately ended up on my TBR list.

Clara is currently serving a life sentence for a stupid mistake in her younger years, Through this story we meet Clara who has cut herself off from most inmates to keep her head down and do her time. You get the feeling that Clara is depressed she never has any visitors and she just spends her time looking after her cellmate who was blinded in a fight and working on translating text books and art into braille.
We don’t find out straight away what the mistake was that Clara made that landed her a life sentence but learn in dribs and drabs as Clara goes public for the first time on what happened that day her life turned to hell, This style is usually painful for me to read because I can’t stand waiting, I am not very patient, but the way Ms Coleman has the story line skipping between the story of what happened and the story line in the present was done well with lots of action between both story lines to keep you interested.
Clara’s story is of a naive young adult in love for the first time, who blindly followed what her boyfriend and his friends wanted her to do, you really feel sorry for her until you remember she murdered someone in cold blood.

Quick read about a woman in prison for murder with no chance of parole. As the story unravels, though, we learn more about her daily life "inside These Walls", and through letters, and memories of what actually lead her to her crime, it is not all as black and white as it seems. It all comes out 25 years after the crime is committed, due the curiosity of an unexpected visitor. She accepted her punishment, and refused to do interviews all this time, despite a TV movie and pleadings for interviews, but this one visitor leads it all to unravel. If you like the book or Netflix "Orange is the New Black", I think you will like it.

Rebecca Coleman’s INSIDE THESE WALLS is absorbing, compelling, incredibly detailed and very well-drawn. It was the sort of story that prompted me to email the author immediately after finishing, so eager was I to express my crazy mixed bag of emotions at everything that came to pass.

Clara is a character you don’t feel you should like (being a convicted killer and all), but we get the sense there’s more to her story than court documents and a sensational Lifetime movie have shown. She’s so empathetic, quiet and introspective that we bond with her immediately, reliving her ill-fated romance with Ricky and getting the saga of their inevitable downfall in bits and pieces. As Clara’s tale unravels, it’s hard not to feel incredibly sad for her. As the story’s narrator, she guides us through the truths and half-truths and lies as she retreads old territory, and I found myself feeling . . . very protective of her.

Given the novel takes place within a prison, it would be easy to tire of Clara’s pinhole world — but Coleman takes us so deeply into the mind and heart of her narrator, I never felt bored or claustrophobic. Quite the opposite, in fact. Through her memories and confessional chats with a friendly Catholic priest, we’re privy to such a complicated, emotional back story that I had to keep reminding myself of all that actually came to pass.

This book was awesome. Up-til-3-a.m. awesome.

Fans of contemporary fiction and prison dramas as well as bold, complicated characters will find much to love in Coleman’s latest. Clara isn’t a character I’ll soon forget, and I love that INSIDE THESE WALLS drops us at the beginning of a new era. I was very satisfied with the ending . . . and only wish I could have stayed with Clara a little longer.

I started reading this book, and again it instantly drew me into the minds of the characters. I felt I was alongside Clara Mattingly through her amazing journey. Each time I have finished one of Rebeccas books, I hope she continues to write.
