The Redemption

The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman by Carole Brown

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?


In writing The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman, Carole Brown tackles a dark, difficult subject and does a tremendous job! With a well-developed plot and characters, you are quickly drawn into this thought provoking story. The dramatic events keep you turning the pages and wondering what will happen next. It is a reminder that evil does exist and may be closer than we think. However, even amidst the suffering, pain and anguish there is also hope, forgiveness and redemption.

The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman is a well-written novel and I look forward to reading more from Carole Brown!
