In January 2015, police and FBI agents showed up at the Brooklyn apartment of Bobby and Cheryl Love. It turns out that Bobby Love — a devoted husband and father — was also an escapee from a North Carolina prison.

The two join us to discuss their remarkable story in their book, written with Lori L. Tharps, "The Redemption of Bobby Love: A Story of Faith, Family and Justice."
