Sweet Forgiveness by Lori Nelson Spielman is a beautifully written and thought-provoking novel about forgiveness. In this powerful novel about granting and seeking forgiveness, talk show host Hannah Farr is thrust into the uncomfortable position of revisiting a very painful time in her life. Her journey leads to an unexpected reconciliation but it also causes her to doubt her perception of long events. Confronting the past is often a double-edged sword and Hannah learns this lesson first hand when everything she has worked for is jeopardized by her decision to seek and give absolution.

Hannah's impulsive decision to use the forgiveness stones as a pitch for a new job is the catalyst for the upcoming turmoil in her life. She really does not intend to move from New Orleans to Chicago, but she hopes to use the job offer as leverage to get her boyfriend of two years to finally propose to her. Hannah is stunned when the ploy backfires and he encourages her to seriously consider the position. Although she decides that accepting the job would be a wise career move, she still has no intention of actually following through on her forgiveness stone idea, but when a conniving co-worker forces her hand, Hannah has no choice but to move forward with her plan.

For someone who has been in the cutthroat world of broadcast journalism for a number of years, Hannah is a little naive and way too trusting. Although her close friend, Jade, warns her to watch her back, Hannah ignores her advice and blunders her way into a situation that quickly spirals out of control.

All the while this professional drama is playing out, Hannah's personal life is also imploding. Her gullibility extends into her relationship with her mayor boyfriend and she is completely blindsided by his reaction to her decision. Hannah is further shocked by his lack of support and his total disregard for her needs.

Sweet Forgiveness is a very poignant novel that does not shy away from difficult topics. While Lori Nelson Spielman handles these issues with sensitivity, the resolution of this part of the storyline is rather ambiguous and a little dissatisfying. However this does not impact the overall enjoyment of the story and the conclusion of Hannah's journey is quite heartwarming. It is a compelling read that is quite unique and one that I highly recommend. ( )

Eine Autorin entfacht einen Riesen-Hype um die sogenannten Versöhnungssteine: Man erhält einen mit einer Bitte um Vergebung und gibt ihn zurück, wenn man vergeben hat. Mit einem weiteren Stein soll man selber um Vergebung bitten.
Die TV-Moderatorin Hannah Farr hat einen solchen Stein und müsste sich dringend bei ihrer Mutter entschuldigen. Seit 20 Jahren haben sie keinen Kontakt mehr. Was nun in Folge verschiedener Versöhnungsaktivitäten geschieht, krempelt Hannahs ganzes Leben um.
Das Buch ist gespickt mit einfachen Lebensweisheiten ala »Du wirst nie eine Zukunft haben, wenn du dich nicht mit der Vergangenheit versöhnst.« Dennoch ist da natürlich etwas wahres dran und die ganzen Versöhnungsgeschichten sind einerseits traurig, andererseits aber auch extrem rührend. Hannah ist sympathisch, die Liebesgeschichte süß. Insgesamt also ein nettes Buch, wenn auch nicht so schön wie "Morgen kommt ein neuer Himmel". ( )

Dopo aver letto, e apprezzato, il primo romanzo di questa scrittrice la seconda prova è decisamente inferiore.
Molto deluso ( )
