Great Books In The Spotlight

A series of decisions that will change his life forever.


David Chambers was born into a strictly religious family. As members of the Eternal Fellowship, they have chosen to reject the ways of the world and have separated themselves from the rest of humanity. As his arranged marriage to another follower - a woman he has come to dislike - looms ever closer, David decides to break off the engagement. This comes as a shock to his betrothed, his family and the wider Fellowship community.


When the beautiful Alison Johnson, a non-believer and former classmate re-enters his life, David makes a series of decisions that will change his life forever. Has David jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire? Will he return to what he knows or embrace his new-found freedom?


A rich novel of intrigue and guarded pasts, Righteous Release is the debut novel from author Richard Gardner and the prequel to Iniquitous Lives. Written with an acerbic pen it proves an insightful and thought provoking read as he fearlessly explores the enduring themes of religious bigotry, love, passion and local politics. Undeniably, zealous extremism is central to Gardner’s plot and yet he doesn’t allow it to overly dominate, creating a poignant and timely reflection on the penuries of modern life and the bonds that invariably influence the choices we make. On this level it is astutely observed with Gardner peppering his words with wonderfully thoughtful anecdotes whilst finding a notable balance in tenor and tone that gives rise to much reflection. Alongside a host of well rendered characters and Gardner's fine ear for dialogue it is ably pitched and demonstrates an intimate knowledge of his tales thematic undertones.


A bold and highly enjoyable foray into the extremities of religious doctrine, Righteous Release is a read that deserves your attention and is strongly recommended.
