Caralynne Hayman is angry and bitter over the abuse and death of her eleven-year-old daughter at the hands of a radical religious cult—The Children of Righteous Cain. So when her husband, a founding member of the cult, suffers a massive heart attack, Caralynne allows her husband to die.
Caralynne’s secret seems safe until Dayne MacFarland returns, determined to learn the truth about the cult. His investigation and his rekindled love for Caralynne lead the pair toward a confrontation with the group’s elders.
Can Dayne’s love for Caralynne bridge the gulf of anger and bitterness that divides the community? Or will Caralynne’s deadly secrets prove too high a price for her redemption?
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
This novel is written with intensity, integrity and candor, a page-turner of epic proportions where redemption is the ultimate objective. I highly recommend this book for those interested in the revelation of cult activities. This book is not for the fainthearted.
Seldom does a Christian novel have the courage to take on a topic like abuse and still be full of suspense and entertainment without coming across as preachy. The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman is one of those novels. I love this novel and look forward to reading more by Carole Brown. I highly recommend it.
The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman is a courageous story, set in a story-world few are brave enough to explore, the seamy world of cults. But even in this living hell, there is a light in the darkness; there is hope for the hopeless; there is a love that is stronger than hate. This is a riveting romantic suspense with underlying spiritual themes. A great debut novel by Carole Brown.
As difficult as the book was to read, I had a hard time putting it down. When a book makes me want to sit and read all afternoon to the exclusion of everything else, it earns five stars. And that’s what Ms. Brown’s book did. I look forward to more from this author.
The book is not for the faint of heart, because Carole paints a true picture of how terrible life can be inside a group of misled people who believe so intensely in what they do that they will harm anyone who gets in their way. Well written and thought provoking, The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman will not leave you for a long time.
