A story of broken dreams and second chances
In Eli’s Redemption, Paul Attaway writes a novel that stands on its own but also picks up where he left off, at the exciting climax of Blood in the Low Country, his debut set in Charleston, S. C. in the 1970s.
In Blood in the Low Country, we meet Monty Atkins, a successful lawyer with a growing practice, a membership in a private country club and a summer home on Kiawah Island who, along with his wife, Rose, is raising two boys, Eli and Walker. Life is good until it isn’t. A brutal murder turns their lives upside down and their oldest son, Eli, flees Charleston to avoid facing murder charges, charges of which he is innocent.
In Eli’s Redemption, we catch up with Eli Atkins, betrayed and abandoned, and living in the Bahamas where he seeks refuge in a new identity. But angry, lonely, and adrift, he remains aloof, never allowing anyone close enough to hurt him.
When fate introduces Eli to ageing Scottish golf pro, Lach McGregor, he finds reason to hope. Lach too is burdened by an incalculable loss, and together, teacher and student, they are each a lifeline for the other. When Eli falls for a beautiful young girl, the pieces of a life he longs for fall into place.
But Eli’s hopes and dreams for a new life are continually dashed against the reality that no one can know who he really is. And when his dazzling skill on the golf course attracts the attention of a professional criminal and gambler, Bernard Lasko, Eli finds himself trapped in debt and out of options. If he is ever to break free and recover his identity, Eli must face his past, forgive, learn to trust, be willing to risk his life to save another’s, and face down Lasko which he does in a dramatic 18-hole match for the largest stakes imaginable.
