Book Review - Return to Innocence by G.M. Frazier

From Goodreads:

Glen Erskine is a gifted psychologist who serves as the director and chief of staff of New Horizons, a group home and counseling center for abused boys.

Tommy Jackson is a thirteen-year-old victim of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse who has been taken into custody by the Department of Social Services after his mother was arrested for prostitution. At New Horizons, Tommy’s young life finally seems to be coming together. But when he falls into an illicit relationship with one of the staff members, things begin to spiral out of control and Tommy strikes back in a tangled web of deceit that turns Glen's life upside down.

Set in the Lowcountry of South Carolina in and around Charleston, this is a disturbing yet poignant tale of love and sacrifice, commitment and betrayal, forgiveness and redemption—and a riveting inside look at the processes and agendas involved in the prosecution of child sex abuse case.

My Thoughts:

Oh my gosh......this book was FANTASTIC. I couldn't put it down....
It deals with the sensitive subject of child abuse and gay relationships in a very real light. I felt so many emotions while reading this, I can't even begin to describe it. Just trust me, it is that good. I won't forget this one for a very long time, and I am searching G.M Frazier's other books on Amazon to read. I have found myself a new favorite author.

Highly Recommended: Five Bunnies!
