Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Redemption Story by I.L. Green

Redemption Story

"A stunning work of sparkling dialog, dark plot themes and character development that shines a soft light into the dark corners of damaged psyches trying to survive. The female protagonist, and her “salvation galpal” live in a world that, if it notices them, doesn’t want them, and if it acknowledges them at all, it is to demean, detain and destroy. The author’s grasp of these damaged souls and psyches is too on point to be an accident, too seductive to ignore and too beautifully drawn to be anything other than a master’s gentle understanding of fragile lives hardened by the world and bruised hearts that rarely open…until they do."

A story of one woman's journey from darkness to light. From being on a dead-end road in life to having the world open up to her. Iris never tells us much about her past other than that she clearly has not had an easy life and either bad luck, bad choices, or a combination of the two, have left her adrift and committing crimes to get by. Then she meets Kira: a lightning ride with an uneasy moral compass culminating in self-discovery.
