What she can’t rebuild is her family. The deaths of her wife, Isabella, and their daughter, Bella, haunt her every breath. While she attended a business meeting they were kidnapped and senselessly murdered. The guilt is all encompassing.

Renee McVee’s partner, Emily’s daughter, was killed by a drunk driver, on the way to pick up her children from school. Renee’s response to her grief is to drown her sorrows.
Redemption takes a gritty look at domestic violence and how it influences the lives of these three women and how they learn to deal with the devastating fallout. It’s also a story of love, old and new. It answers the questions, is it possible to love again? Is it possible to forgive yourself? Is it possible to find redemption?
