Format: Paperback
Despite impassioned pleas from friends, American born and bred Genevieve struggles to come to terms with the most heinous accusations that surround the man who has captured her heart, Carlos Cornella. Carlos bears the brunt of his nation's residual anger following years of war and unspeakable tortures conducted in the name of political welfare. Years later, the question remains, who was right? And who should pay for these criminal acts?

Meanwhile, Genevieve is caught in the middle of a divided country when she finds her heart and her God call her to forgive the Unforgivable. Can she do it? Love Carlos when God calls her to even though every human voice warns her against such foolishness?

Tessa Stockton's debut novel, The Unforgivable is a novel filled with political intrigue taken to the brink of heartbreak in in a way that makes redemption and forgiveness possible. Well written and riveting, you'll find this edgy story hard to put down.

Even though, as a man, I didn't really relate to the protagonist (Genevieve), I enjoyed reading The Unforgivable. I knew very little about the Dirty War (Argentina, late 70s - early 80s), but the author did a great job of explaining the different sides of the conflict throughout the course of the story. I found myself wanting to learn more about it. It was also interesting to see the rationale of those from both sides of the war.
The Unforgivable is well-written and illustrates the beauty of forgiveness. Despite the well-intentioned pleas from her friends, Genevieve continues to meet with (and fall for) Carlos, a despised veteran of the Dirty War. With friendships on the line, she attempts to love the unlovable and show mercy and grace to someone who often failed to do the same.
I'm looking forward to the next installment of the Wounds of South America series.

They say there are two sides to every coin, and the author explores sides to the human rights coin you might never have known existed. If it's thought-provoking you want, you've come to the right place.

Most of us who aren't from South America don't know much about Argentina's so-called Dirty War, unless we knew people who lived there in the 1970s and '80s. Though this story will introduce you to that horror, it's far more than a political tale. The novel is a graphic illustration of what the Gospel message is all about, and an exploration of how our lives will be changed once we take Christ's work of redemption seriously no matter what the political climate.

Personally, I'd prefer to see the story on a different stage than a romantic one; I think the hormonal influence dilutes the thrust of the message, just a little. But the author manages to pull it off, portraying the characters in their multiple facets with a haunting believability. Exhibiting a comfortable familiarity with the subjects she touches upon, she spreads out for the hungry reader a veritable feast for thought.

Unforgivable is one of those books in which you grab and cannot put down until you are finished reading. Tessa Stockton did an amazing job in bringing together social issues, religious beliefs, and the human side of life. While reading this book I found myself soul-searching a bit. Stockton has a way with her words that sends a reader on a journey within themselves while trying to dig up answers to internal questions.

The author's voice is an incredible one and her tone throughout the book was one of compassion and kindness. Genevieve and Carlos are excellent characters. After they were introduced in the book I found myself feeling very empathetic towards them. The plot plays out and the reader is left examining their own faith. I love a book that challengers the emotions of a reader - this book was no different.

Tessa Stockton proves here that she can end up being a giant in her genre. She is an amazing writer that pays very good careful to detail. The cover, the editing, and enthralling plot - all amazing! 5 stars!

Is anything unforgivable? That is the treatise and theme of Tessa Stockton's début novel about Argentina's Dirty War. Wow, talk about a difficult subject about a very difficult time in the modern era. Yet, the questions Ms. Stockton asks are timeless and important for today. Is there really something that is unforgivable? What about torture and military atrocities. What drove people to such actions, and what do those actions portend for the perpetrators and their victims? To what lengths should a society go to punish such actions and are they ever justified? These are just a few of the topics The Unforgivable touches.

Genevieve came to Buenos Aires to sell her quilts; she couldn't imagine she would come into contact with the most notorious military war criminal of Argentina's Dirty War, and she couldn't imagine her new found friends were victims and friends of victims. Genevieve couldn't imagine that she would fall in love with that war criminal or what that might lead to--forgiveness perhaps?

That forgiveness for Genevieve takes on the sign of the Cross. Where her Argentinean friends see only an evil man, Genevieve sees a broken person who needs the love of Christ and her love. She has no idea what that love might cost her.

Ms. Stockton brings us a strong Christian romance novel that crosses borders and causes us to reflect on the events of the day. Just how much can and should we forgive? How can we forgive such evil? Genevieve's answer lies in faith.
