A Cup of Redemption

A Novel

Like the braiding of three strands of brioche, the lives of three women—Sophie Zabél Sullivan, Marcelle Pourrette Zabél and Kate Barrington—become inextricably intertwined as each struggles to resolve issues from past wars that have profoundly impacted their lives.

Rising out of the collateral damage wrought by war, what emerges is a touching story about love, loss, and the powerful desire for wholeness through redemption.
