Forgiveness
 Soti Triantafyllou

120pp.
Patakis, 2005
ISBN: 960-16-1477-X

In Soti Triantafyllou’s new novel Forgiveness, the heroine – a housewife who lives in Nashville, Tennessee, the home of country and western music – does something extraordinary. She contacts the man who has murdered her daughter and forgives him.
This is a brief and tightly structured narrative where much of the action develops on an interior level.
The novel generates images of a deeply provincial America, from the thrall of which the heroine eventually manages to break free, thanks to her own remarkable courage.
In this book, Triantafyllou writes with sentiment but without sentimentality. Far from being a facile response to the magnitude of the problem of violence, Forgiveness is an exceptionally perceptive study of it.
It is one of several books that Triantafyllou has chosen to set in America, a country in which she lived for years and which she knows intimately.
