Readers will see themselves mirrored on each page, and though the feelings evoked aren't always pleasant, they are life changing. Forgiveness abounds in this stunning tale.
Augustus carries his own scars from the past, but his are emotional and spiritual rather than physical. Grace reigns when this unlikely pair become friends and begin to confide in each other. (THOMAS NELSON, Mar., 320 pp., $14.99)
