Shelfari edited the description of Facing Redemption Thursday, January 31, 2013.
What if you had done something so unimaginable in your past that you felt you could never be forgiven? John Mikale, a man with a checkered reputation, can’t begin to shake his guilt for the hurt he’s caused his daughter, Chastity, and how its scarred so many people in its wake. Although an uphill battle, John diligently strives to make up for lost time by writing Chastity letters, hoping to bridge the gap. John, now married and expecting another child, is haunted by cryptic dreams, from which he awakes in terror. Driven to become a better man, he forces himself to face his nightmares and the reality they represent. Searching for decency within and hoping for a flicker of acceptance from Chastity is the only way he knows to release his past and heal both their wounds. But how can he expect forgiveness when he can’t begin to forgive himself for the hurt he’s caused? Chastity Wayne, finally free from her mother’s past, is ready to move on with life. On the verge of a great relationship and about to start her burgeoning art career, she’s sucked back into her family saga as she breaks her personal promise to never read her father’s letters. From the moment the first envelope is opened, the emotional freedom she’s tried so hard to find is slowly reclaimed word by word. Facing Redemption is a dual storyline that follows the path of an unwanted father and daughter’s journey, through a trail of self-awareness and final acceptance. It is also a continuance of the many unanswered questions from Finding Kylie, book one in this series.
