Forgive Me (mini-review)

Sunday, September 14, 2008

Forgive Me by Amanda Eyre Ward tells the story of a journalist, Nadine, who has traveled the world to report significant events. At the beginning of the book, she is forced to take a break from her job, but then hears about an amnesty hearing in South Africa for the killer of an American journalist who lost his life years before. Nadine reported on the murder and consequent trial when it initially occurred, and she feels the need to return. In the amnesty hearings, those who murdered for the sake of their country can be forgiven and released from jail if the surviving parents are able to forgive.

Nadine struggles with her own issues at home, including relationships that were strained due to her dedication to her career. Amanda Eyre Ward does a wonderful job of incorporating the two story lines. And as in Sleep Towards Heaven, her characters are cleverly woven together. The writing flows throughout the book and makes it a fast read. Very good book!
