The first of five dramatic journeys in people's lives with Desmond Wilcox San Quentin Bride
Virginia Harris, a London social worker, divorced and lonely and bringing up three young sons on her own, saw a television programme about condemned murderers in San Quentin and fell in love - with a man convicted on four counts of murder. She wrote letters to him, they even talked on the phone. He had spent two years on Death
Row waiting to be executed in the gas chamber before a change in the law commuted his sentence to life imprisonment. He'd served 11 years when, from his cell in America's biggest and most notorious prison, he asked Virginia to marry him. She said yes. In spite of pressure from family and friends, in spite of her doubts about the risk, particularly to her three children, she travelled to San Quentin - to meet for the first time the man she knew she wanted to marry.
