4-Star Review of "Retribution"
Lillian Hunter’s life is destroyed when she’s implicated in setting the fire which killed her husband and daughter. Seeking peace and restoration, she pulls the pieces of her shattered life together and accepts a position at a college in another state. Surrounded by a loving family that has adopted her as their own, Lillian struggles with new life, new love…and new danger. Fires are being set in which she is once again implicated. Doubting her own sanity, Lillian takes steps to ensure she isn’t setting the fires. But if it isn’t her, who is it? And why, after she’s moved halfway across the country, have they followed her? A day of reckoning is coming as Lillian seeks to exonerate herself and claim retribution for the destruction of her life. Will she discover the truth before her new life is consumed by the flames?
MY REVIEW: She moves to avoid the control of her parents, but her past seems to be following her. Her new job at a small college may be threatened if people find out about her past. She was the prime suspect in the house fire that killed her husband and young daughter, but she was never prosecuted. She maintains her innocence. Now someone is burning homes again and setting her up the guilty party! She is shocked and upset over the fact that she finds gas cans in her car, after one home fire. She falls in love with a man named Roger and he is very unusual, but she also has a strong attraction to Paul, a local police officer. Roger convinces her that Paul will lock her up in prison if he finds out about her past. Did she set the fires and just doesn't remember? Is she innocent or guilty?
This book had a great deal of suspense and thrills at every turn of the page. It does look look like she is guilty, but will she bef ound guilty and end up in prison? I really enjoyed this book and was caught up in suspense, but my one complaint is that I had a hard time keeping up with the different characters.
I rated this book 4 stars and recommend it to readers of Christian fiction.
This book was a gift and I have chosen to review it.
