#1 international bestselling author Lori Nelson Spielman follows The Life List with Sweet Forgiveness, in which a woman's receipt of two "forgiveness stones" sends her searching for atonementThe Forgiveness Stones craze is sweeping the nation--instantly recognizable pouches of stones that come with a chain letter and two simple requests: to forgive, and then to seek forgiveness. But New Orleans' favorite talk show host, Hannah Farr, isn't biting. Intensely private and dating the city's mayor, Hannah has kept her very own pouch of Forgiveness Stones hidden for two years--and her dark past concealed for nearly two decades. But when Fiona Knowles, creator of the Forgiveness Stones, appears on Hannah's show, Hannah unwittingly reveals on air details of a decades-old falling out with her mother.Spurned by her fans, doubted by her friends, and accused by her boyfriend of marring his political career, Hannah reluctantly embarks on a public journey of forgiveness. As events from her past become clearer, the truth she's clung to since her teenage years has never felt murkier. Hannah must find the courage to right old wrongs or risk losing her mother, and any glimmer of an authentic life, forever.

display_description "#1 international bestselling author Lori Nelson Spielman follows The Life List with Sweet Forgiveness, in which a woman's receipt of two "forgiveness stones" sends her searching for atonement ... Hannah Farr is a popular daytime television host with a charismatic boyfriend. She has much to be thankful for-except for a past she'd do anything to forget. Just as a rival station comes calling, Hannah's ratings take a dangerous dip. Her producer complains that she's not opening up to her audience, and her friend insists that the problem extends to her personal life. One person Hannah can't ask for advice is her mother, to whom she hasn't spoken since her high-school graduation. Only one woman seems to have the answer: Fiona Knowles. Creator of the Forgiveness Stones, a concept that's sweeping the nation, she's urging everyone to forgive and to seek forgiveness. As events conspire to ensure the fiercely private Hannah's most public participation, she must risk the life she's earned. Is her mother's love, and the glimmers of a future she never could have imagined, worth the price?"--
