Publisher's Summary

When Emily Adams hits and kills 10-year-old Isaiah Nelson with her car, she is overwhelmed with remorse. Knowing she cannot undo this tragedy, Emily hopes to atone for Isaiah's death by good deeds and community service. However, the more she does, the more her life falls apart.  

With her job on the line, her volunteer efforts fruitless, and her marriage in jeopardy, the final blow comes when Isaiah's grieving parents file a wrongful death suit. For them, this will be justice and closure, but for Emily this is final proof she will never be forgiven. Not by Isaiah's parents - not by God. Where do you turn when "I'm sorry" isn't enough?

Heartwarming moments

I received a free code to listen to this book and I did so willingly

This book about forgiveness is really an amazing story. I believe it is quite important that a person should forgive themselves and others. The bible tells us that we need to forgive one another before we can be forgiven

very well written and excellent narration

Well narrated and captivating

What did you love best about Atonement for Emily Adams?

It tackles very difficult questions: What would you do if you accidentally killed a child, or anyone? What is forgiveness? Could you let go and give your burden to God? How would you let go? Could you forgive yourself? It encourages deep introspection and an inventory of faith.

What does Julie Niblett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Narration is crisp and clean, with believable character voicings and an appropriate amount of emotion. Ms. Niblett brings the story to life, and makes you want to stay with it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Isaiah's mother was prompted by God to pray for the woman (Emily) who killed her son.
