What is the limit to your love?


She was in love with a convicted murderer. The relationship was a strenuous one, facing stigmatization and obstacles most couples never expect to confront. Paul and Jordan speak with award-winning author, Diane Schoemperlen, about her recent memoir, This Is Not My Life, in which she reveals the human and unfamiliar side of loving the prison inmate she calls Shane. Despite the struggles of the almost six-year relationship, Diane describes how dating a federal prisoner has made her a stronger, more compassionate person.
