Episode details

Nicola talks with Bobby and Cheryl Love, a couple from New York City whose lives were turned upside down a few years ago when the NYPD and FBI showed up at their door, asking for Walter Miller. But who was Walter Miller, Mrs. Love wanted to know. As events unfolded over, Mrs. Love and her four children learned that the man they had called husband and father for the past 30-plus years had an astonishing past. Walter Miller — or Bobby Love — was a convicted bank robber wanted for escaping a North Carolina prison almost 40 years ago. After their story went viral in a “Humans of New York” post, the Loves decided to share their story with the world. Their new book, “The Redemption of Bobby Love: A Story of Faith, Family, and Justice,” takes readers back to that fateful day. In the following interview, the Loves reveal lessons they’ve learned, why they believe God was looking out for them...and why they’ve been thinking about Samuel L. Jackson and Loretta Divine.
