Quinn is serving a life sentence for a terrible crime committed against the love of his life, Andrea. As the date of his release nears, he receives a letter from an unexpected sender: Andrea’s mother Jennifer. To the horror of her local community, she invites Quinn to share her home. What appears a radical act of forgiveness is, however, underpinned by more complex motivations.
As they navigate the thorny terrain of guilt, loathing and mutual need that underpins their relationship, Quinn is fighting demons within himself, urges that have always plagued him and threaten to transcend his desire for redemption. Now he must battle to preserve the freedom he longs for, even as the dark voices within threaten to pull him back down…
Visceral and compelling, Quinn is a beautifully poetic debut about family, love, and the many faces of betrayal.
