Absolution Cover
Jack McKenna is a man with two very distinct pasts.   One ended with a car accident involving his girlfriend, Ally, and a split-second decision with horrific consequences. Desperate to escape the guilt, he carved out a new life for himself. Four years spent hiding in the shadows, punishing himself for not having the courage to go back to her. Then, out of the blue, a phone call forces him to face up to everything and everyone he left behind.   Ally Connor’s life was split in two - before the car accident that shattered her spine, and after Jack’s sudden disappearance. Abandoning her when she needed him most, she fought hard to make it back from the brink. The face she shows to the world is strong and courageous, but behind the mask, the pain is burrowing deeper.   But fate had more in store for these two broken souls than either could have imagined. A funeral, a homecoming and a journey of self-discovery that would change both their lives - if they let it.   Suddenly, the secrets they want to hide from each other are the very secrets that could make them whole again.

Jack McKenna and Ally Conner are two lost souls who need to find each other again in order to move on…..
Four years ago Jack, Ally and their friend Callum got into an accident that left Ally disabled from the waist down, from a spinal injury, and that had Jack running the away from the guilt that was eating away at him.
Four years later Jack gets news that had him going home. Will he stay home and fix what had happened or will he go back running again? Or will it be what Jack has been up to for the last four years that caught up with him have him running back?
But the bigger and main question is, will Callum and Ally accept and give Jack the chance to redeem himself and try to salvage a semblance of the relationship they had or even to create a new relationship?
This book was definitely harder and a heavier read than what I usually read. I rather like to read fluffy and light books, but I do enjoy myself a heavy book every once in a while. It was hard at times to continue to read it and digest it and at other times I just wanted to curl up and cry for their pain. This story was beautifully written. Something about it just had me captivated that it had me reading it till the end even though at times I just wanted to throw my phone across my room and just say forget it. Over all I really enjoyed this book. I give this book four stars.

Author Bio Trans
Amanda Dick is a night-owl, coffee addict, movie buff and music lover. She loves to do DIY (if it's not bolted down, she'll probably paint it, re-cover it or otherwise decorate it) and has tried almost every craft known to man/womankind. She has two sewing machines and an over-locker she can't remember how to thread. She crochets (but can't follow a pattern), knits (badly) and refrains from both as a public service. She believes in love at first sight, in women's intuition and in following your heart. She is rather partial to dark chocolate and believes in the power of a good vanilla latte. What lights her fire is writing stories about real people in trying situations. Her passion is finding characters who are forced to test their boundaries. She is insanely curious about how we, as human beings, react when pushed to the edge. Most of all, she enjoys writing about human behaviour - love, loss, joy, grief, friendship and the complexity of relationships in general. After living in Scotland for five years, she has now settled back home in New Zealand, where she lives with her husband and two children.   Amanda Dick Author
