In some ways, I have mixed feelings about this book. I found the story quite exciting and intriguing. I would call it a thriller and/or political intrigue. The characters were quite interesting and well-developed. The first chapter succeeded in drawing me in the way some books never do. It was an easy-to-read book, and the style was pretty good. Lisa, Zach, and Sam were quite intriguing, and every time you thought you had it figured out, the book took another twist or turn.

I appreciated the themes in the book. After all, God does ask us to forgive no matter what. He alone can restore relationships that have been completely destroyed. He never gives up on us. And it was truly nice to see characters pray and turn to God in their times of need. It was nice to see that the profanity in the book was very mild, and there was no sex. That is always a nice bonus when reading a book--especially one of this nature.

I truly struggled with the almost paranormal-like portions of the book. I understand that God can send people back from the dead to talk to the living, but He doesn't make a habit of doing that. And for someone to come back from the dead and suddenly clear up misconceptions seems a little far-fetched. I realize that this was not the focus of the book, but I struggle when something like this is in a Christian novel. I know my views are probably a little bit different than many people in this area, but I could have done without this portion of the book.

My other criticism is the last twenty or so pages of the book. I feel like the author tried to wrap the book up quickly, and a few things happened that seemed to not make sense. I got a little confused, and although some it may have been an attempt at realism, it just happened too quickly.

Format: Paperback
Lisa is a brilliant, 30-year-old computer programmer recruited by ISF-Intel Securities Foundation, a contractor for the Department of Defense. At such a young age, she already has a patent on a software that the DOD is willing to buy from her at any price. Overnight, it has become the most sought-after program on the planet.

Then one day she is kidnapped and badly hurt in the process. To avoid giving her captors what they want, she fools them by faking amnesia. What keep her alive are thoughts of seeing again her son and the man she loves.

Meanwhile, her father Sam and her son Zach, together with the authorities, are doing everything they can to find her. Sam has a love-hate relationship with Lisa because he blames her for the death of her mother-and the only woman Sam ever loved.

Their relationship is further damaged by the fact that he took Zach away from Lisa and raised him as his own son. His action was partly due to the fact that Lisa was only a young teenager when she had Zach. The story, told in multiple points of view, switches from Lisa and her ordeal as she's kept captive, to Sam and Zach as they try to find her.

There is quite a lot of backstory, especially at the beginning, which together with various punctuation mistakes, was somewhat distracting. However, I was able to root for Lisa and I also found interesting the dark family dynamics taking place between father and daughter, and mother and son until the compelling ending when there's a transformation among the characters.

Part-thriller, part-drama, Betrayal and Forgiveness is an out-of-the-ordinary story that will appeal to fans of Christian fiction.

Reviewed by Alice D. for Readers Favorite

African-American Lisa Rivers is a genius, starting college at age twelve, but her home life has been difficult and not supportive. Lisa is a highly paid computer designer for the United States government and has developed an incredible program that can locate anyone anywhere once they are fitted with its software. Married at fifteen to her love, Mitchell Adkins, only to have the marriage dissolved by her hostile police detective father, Sam Rivers, Lisa does not understand why her father hates her so much. She let him take her baby, Zachary, the product of her one night with Mitchell, and raise Zach as her brother. Then Sam finds out what really happened at Lisa's birth and reaches out to the daughter he should have loved deeply all along. But Lisa has been kidnapped and badly wounded. Will she die before Sam can reconcile with her and make up for thirty years of unkindness?

"Betray and Forgiveness" is a well-conceived and well-written novel about a family: a father, his daughter, her son and her onetime husband and their love for one another despite everything. Bad guys who want to obtain Lisa's computer program for their own not-so-nice purposes are believable and serve the basic plot well. Frank Millwood's twin, introduced at the story's conclusion, is not a good addition to the basic storyline, but otherwise "Betrayal and Forgiveness" portrays human emotions honestly and the main characters will remain in the minds of any readers for quite some time. All in all, "Betrayal and Forgiveness" is a good book for reading lists everywhere.
