From the Author:

The Redemption is a hard hitting novel about how people treat each other and what they will do to survive.  I have always been fascinated by the way the mind handles events.  When we first meet someone, we actually know very little about that person, yet our mind fills in any blanks, telling us otherwise.  If we like somebody we are more likely to look favourably on their actions than of the actions of someone we don't like, yet the actions can be the same. Sometimes an unpleasant character can look more pleasant in an extreme situation.  We might not like living near violent, aggressive people, yet we are grateful that they are out there defending our country.

I wanted to show three things:

1   That many problems between people are created by our own take on the intentions of an individual.

2 That people whose characters are at odds with everyday life can often shine when the situation changes,  i.e. good or bad can be relative to a situation.

3  When the mind can't cope with a situation, it has the capability to delete the offending part and invent a whole new reality.

People who want to read a story about good little children should avoid this book.  My characters  did not have a good upbringing, are not the most balanced individuals but they know how to survive!
