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.

Lisa Rivers is a genius who grew up without her father's love. She never could figure out what she had done to make him hate her. Lisa has been groomed by the Government ...they paid for her education, and she had a job as soon as she graduated college at 17.
She has developed a program where no one will ever be kidnapped or lost again, without being able to be found. Because of this she is in danger, as is her father and her equally smart little brother.
Things are really not as they appear and the book will keep you page turning. There is a lot of heartache, betrayal, and we find them turning to God at last for forgiveness.
When Lisa is kidnapped and brutally beaten, all of their world turn upside down. Will anything ever be the same? Who can you trust? At times it seems that there is no one. Just when you think you know what will happen, something else changes. Wow!
This is a well written story, and am looking forward to reading more by this author.

I received this book from the author Linda Armstrong-Miller, and Pump Virtual Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
