Book synopsis/description:

Here's a novel for our times! It's a story of two couples - Donna and Karen in a radical relationship,and James and Alice, a conventional couple - and what happens when Karen is attracted to a happily married man. Take it from there and we have a sensitive, gripping portrayal of contemporary society.

Without being judgemental,author Ben Antao succeeds in pulling our heartstrings to sympathise with the dilemmas of both couples as they are forced to come to terms with their respective choices and reconciliation.

Penance is an unusually memorable and thought-provoking novel set against the backdrop of today's conflicting demands in mainstream Christian societies in search of meaning of life.
