Enter to Win This Novel About Cults, New Beginnings, and Redemption by Carole Brown

       How many novels talk about cults? I'm intrigued all ready. Read more about Carol Brown and her book The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman below.

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 from the hands of her religious group, The Children of Righteous Cain. When her husband suffers a sudden heart attack, she does nothing to help him. In her eyes someone needs to pay, and if that means all of the men in the group, then so be it. 

Dayne MacFarland is sent away to college by the senior elder of the group to learn ministry. When he returns after finding salvation, determined to bring the truth to the people he’s known all his life, he rediscovers Cara and realizes the love he once felt for her is still deeply embedded within his heart.  

Dayne faces men unwilling to turn their backs on the cult training he despises. Cara faces men who follow their leader in abuse toward their wives and the young girls of the group. Cara is considered rebellious and inappropriate to befriend. Dayne is the apple of Elder Simmons’ eye—until he takes a stand against their teachings. 

Can Cara overcome the feelings that have governed her most of her life? Can she learn to trust Dayne, and most of all a God whom she sees as uncaring—if he’s really there at all? Only Dayne’s prayers and love can reach Cara and show her the way to redemption, and Cara must recognize and accept God’s love and forgiveness before she goes too far.

  1. For reasons I cannot share here, cults hold a particular interest and fascination for me. I did some research years ago, about a group who abuses their women, and this doesn't sound so different. And in my new WIP, I've a character who dabbles in voodoo. I'm amazed how Holy Spirit ALWAYS prevails, even when we are innocent or naive, or foolish. my email is:

    1. You are so right, Robin. If a person keeps their heart open to God's leading he will never allow them to enter the wrong . . . direction. I know some are untaught, for a better term, in the ways of spirituality and get entangled thru ignorance or blatant disregard, but still I believe God will guide any soul who truly wants the right way. :) Thanks so much for stopping by.

  2. I really enjoyed this book. Carole does a wonderful job of conveying what does happen in the cult situations and has written a very compelling story with this one. I have read the e-book version, but I would love to have a print copy to add to my library and to be able to share with my reading friends at church.

  3. I would love to read this!

  4. I've read this book and it will keep you glued to the pages. It's spine-tingling and well-written. Looking forward to more titles from Carole.

  5. Lauren Brooks, I have a fun, light hearted mystery (book one) out: Hog Insane of the Denton & Alex Davies series AND just released: a WWII romantic suspense, book one, called With Music in Their Hearts. You can find them at Amzn or other online retail stores. :) Thanks for reading TRofCH. :)
