Return to Innocence 

  Request this author
Glen Erskine is a gifted psychologist who serves as the director and chief of staff of New Horizons, a group home and counseling center for abused boys. Tommy Jackson is a thirteen-year-old victim of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse who has been taken into custody by the Department of Social Services after his mother was arrested for prostitution. At New Horizons, Tommy's young life finally seems to be coming together. But when he falls into an illicit relationship with one of the staff members, things begin to spiral out of control and Tommy strikes back in a tangled web of deceit that turns Glen's life upside down. Set in the Lowcountry of South Carolina in and around Charleston, this is a disturbing yet poignant tale of love and sacrifice, commitment and betrayal, forgiveness and redemption--and a riveting inside look at the processes and agendas involved in the prosecution of a child sex abuse case.
