Bound By Guilt

Bound By Guilt, DarlingtnoC.J. Darlington | Tyndale House Publishers

Roxi Gold will do whatever it takes to fit in, even if it’s illegal. She has bounced around through foster care for most of her life and desires to have a family. Roxi eventually finds herself traveling around the country stealing rare books from antique bookstores. She knows it is not right, but if she says no, she’ll have nowhere to go.

Police officer Abby Dawson has dealt with the worst of society, and not just as an officer. She lost her daughter in a bad custody battle with her ex-husband and has become jaded. She once loved her job, but it is now a chore, the world is just as ridden with crime as it was when she started, and her life is devoid of any joy.

One night, Roxi and Abby’s lives are changed forever by an innocent man’s blood. While Abby searches for the truth and justice, Roxi is on the run until a first edition of The Great Gatsby gets her in trouble. Will they be redeemed by the power of forgiveness, or will they both stay bound by guilt?

Though this is a stand-alone novel, the story is entangled with characters from author C.J. Darlington’s first book, Thicker than Blood. Darlington has been in the antiquarian bookselling business for more than a decade and co-founded TitleTrakk.com, Christian entertainment website.
