Escape to Redemption takes place in modern times. It is about 2 people , who end up committing a murder. Josie runs to Poland to save herself and leaves Snaz, her boyfriend, to take the rap. Eventually, she comes back, faces her punishment.
At first, I thought Josie was a using, conniving witch to the point I couldn’t stand her. Then I found out that she has a heart and a conscience. I also liked that she was afraid at times and was unsure what to do which made her more human to me. I think if I had done what she did I would have reacted in much the same way.
This book kept me interested throughout the whole story. I kept wondering what would happen next. I am sure if you like this genre you will really enjoy it.

“She can hide from the police, but not from her guilt.”
Josie only had the gun to frighten Curtis Rook, but his son disturbed her. One startled reflex and now he’s dead. Josie flees to Poland leaving her boyfriend Snaz to take the rap. A reformed criminal offers her refuge from the police and the chance to begin a new life, but she cannot hide from her guilt. As the stakes rise, Josie begins to realize that only her own forgiveness can set her free.
Fast-paced and original, Peter M. Parr’s contemporary take on Crime and Punishment challenges traditional ideas about guilt and redemption, and the meaning of forgiveness.
