Indie authors who dig deep and contribute thoughtful, worthwhile reading deserve attention and respect. Lynn Kinnaman’s short and jolting Unintended Consequences is just such a book.
Poignant and pragmatically grounded, Kinnaman’s portrayal of a family coping with untimely death unearths the spectrum of human emotion without a shred of sentimentality while it explores a rare look at an uncommon human attribute–mercy. As the main character acknowledges,
“There was no reason to hurt my daughter with the betrayal that had shattered my trust.
“The truth didn’t always set you free.
“Sometimes it took you down.”
Brava, Kinnaman, for going deep.
