Hilda Miller, Loving Someone Behind Bars
Devastated when the father of her four small children drowned while swimming in Lake Pontchartrain, Hilda Miller-Jones struggled to survive. A few years later, she met up with a man she had gone to grade school with and had a crush on–Hank Miller. He was home from the Marines and seemed to be the perfect match for Hilda’s needs – a husband for her, a father for her young children and a provider for the whole family. Little could she know that their passion would end in divorce, and 30 days later, Hank would be convicted of murder and sentenced to fifty years in prison. For the next twenty years, Hilda went on with her life, trying to do her best to raise her family and further her own career. But then Hank began calling and didn’t stop until she agreed to see him in prison and, she again fell madly in love with him and remarried him–in spite of the shackles that bound him.
