Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976096390, Hardcover)

Absolution is the story of Maggie Delaney, an idealistic wife and mother whose world implodes when her husband Richard is murdered in a botched convenience-store robbery. To her horror, Maggie learns the shooting may not have been an accident.
When she attempts to find out what really happened, her search leads her back to her Carolina roots and through the streets of 1960s New York and modern-day
Boston. Maggie retraces the steps of a generation that came of age in the 1960s, when the world was embroiled in conflict.

As the murder trial draws near, disturbing questions arise about Richard and his possible role in military atrocities. Finally, in the jungles of Southeast Asia, Maggie uncovers a legacy of secrets about the man she thought she knew--and the troubled world they shared.
