BOUND BY GUILT, a new novel by C. J. Darlington

Bound By Guilt
One searches for justice. One finds herself on the run.


Roxi Gold is a throwaway, shuttled from one foster home to another for most of her life. She longs for a family and will do anything to fit in – even it it’s against the law. Soon she’s traveling the country stealing rare books from unsuspecting bookstores, until a first edition of The Great Gatsby catches up with her.

Police officer Abby Dawson has seen the worst of society, and not just at at work. The job she once loved has become a chore, the world isn’t any safer, and there’s no joy in her life. One fateful night a man’s innocent blood changes both Roxi’s and Abby’s lives forever.

Will the power of forgiveness set them free, or will they both remain bound by guilt?


Thicker Than Blood

Bound By Guilt
is a stand-alone sequel to Thicker Than Blood.


Note: Bound by Guilt includes discussion questions at the back for book club groups.

“I hope (readers) will be challenged to look past outward appearances and see people, especially teens, the way God sees them. Love them for who they are with no strings attached. Love them even when they make mistakes. Love truly does cover over a multitude of wrongs.” C. J. Darlington
