Publisher's Summary

On a beautiful fall evening, in the middle of a game of hide-and-seek, five-year-old Bobby Clark is kidnapped by his estranged father, a shiftless man with a history of domestic violence and drug abuse. Bobby's twin brother Ricky watches, terrified, from his hiding place behind the bougainvillea, while mother Tabby, who also struggles with addiction, lies inebriated on the living room floor.
Bobby isn't seen by his loved ones again until a fateful morning 25 years later, when video of his arrest dominates the morning news. He has been charged with the murder of his father, but before the trial can begin, he manages to escape.
As Tabby and Ricky absorb the news of Bobby's return and subsequent escape, Tabby is convinced he'll come home to the quiet Florida street from which he was taken so long ago. But when events begin to spiral out of control, she's left to wonder: is a child born to be evil, or shaped to be evil? And in the end, when it's time to make amends, does it really matter?

Both Heart Warming and Heart Wrenching

Making Amends is a very good story. It is heart warming and heart wrenching at the same time. I thought the character development was very good and I liked the characters quite a bit and cared about what happened to them. The book really delved into several different human and psychological issues that affect so many people, including alcohol, drug, emotional and sexual abuse. Making Amends is suspenseful and intriguing. It held my attention throughout. My preference however would have been to have it end differently.

I listened to the Audible version of this book, which I received in exchange for an honest review, and the narration was fabulous! The narrator was able to bring the various characters to life with different voices and intonations.

All in all, a very good book which I am happy to have read and I would highly recommend.
