Eric Hoffer Book Award, Honorable Mention
“A must-read for history buffs and romantics.” US Review of Books
The day after his grandfather’s funeral, David Sumner saves a drowning boy, and his life will never be the same. From the beautiful family farm in Vermont to the alluring art world of New York City, this new book by Pollyanna Porter follows David as he falls in love with the boy’s mother, struggles with a glamorous-though-empty life in the city, and finally flees, desperate for a fresh start. But the tentative peace he’s trying to carve out for himself hides painful memories and family secrets that reach back to World War II and stolen art during the Holocaust. Through endearing characters, Redeemed explores themes of loss, love, and redemption.
