Forgive Me Summary


Forgive Me by Amanda Eyre Ward

A stunning and compelling novel of love and ambition.

Nadine is a 35-year-old journalist at a crossroads in her life. She longs for Pulitzer-prize winning success but her career seems to be going nowhere until the story of a lifetime comes up. Faced with the choice of following the story and leaving behind her boyfriend, who has just proposed, she leaves America for Capetown. There she meets war photographer George, whose rage at the death of his lover during apartheid seems bottomless. As events unfold, Nadine discovers she is pregnant and is forced to choose whether to return home to a secure married life with her boyfriend or pursue a life of independence and adventure - a life like George's...

Set partly in Mandela's South Africa, where individuals must weigh the cost of following their dreams against the high price of truth, `Forgive Me' is the unputdownable story of a woman who has to decide between security and adventure in life and love.
