Synopsis for Acts of Forgiveness
In 1980s America, coming out as gay as a father and husband was a significant journey for anyone to make. Coming out as gay as a priest guaranteed immersion into controversy, contradiction, and challenge. This book tells of the Reverend Canon Ted Karpf’s navigation of new social and romantic journeys, all within the context of this priestly vocation in the Episcopal Church.
Covering from 1968 to 2018, Karpf recounts his vivid memories, life-changing dreams and resonant reflections on living al I’ve of faith in a socially and politically tumultuous period. His narratives are crafted as poetic meditations on enduring values and meaning, which can remind any reader that we are neither abandoned more alone, and that forgiveness is a fulfilling way of living in a wold of contradictions.
Review of Acts of Forgiveness
I absolutely loved this book. It is raw and just hugs you. It is heartwarming, and gives you the reality of how society is. To be a gay priest is something you don’t hear very often. They are like a unicorn, and I love knowing that there is someone out there who will not judge.

Synopsis for Love & Deception
For as long as I can remember I’ve had this plan, a goal to become number one in the PBR. I’ve never let anything or anyone come between me and my dream until that one weekend I had with Sonya Collins. Now, I’m wondering what’s more important love or those eight seconds?
Sonya “Shug” Collins
I’ve always known my place within the M.C. world with the Satan’s Sinners, I’m a club whore, it’s who I am and all I’ll ever be to them. I want more. I don’t fantasize about becoming an Ol‘ Lady. My dream is to escape the life I was born into. What’s stopping me? I owe the club and Hanger and until that debt is paid I’m stuck. Or so I thought until that one weekend with Cody Sterling, the bull rider that rode into town and showed me what love could really be like.
I’m in love with Shug and she can’t even see it. I thought one day she’d open those pretty amber eyes and realize what was in front of her, but Shug’s hate for my world runs deep. I watched as he drove away leaving her standing there crying. I’ll pick up the pieces that he broke and put her back together. Maybe then she’ll love me too.
My Review for Love & Deception
Ah, I love love triangles. You always hope one would be picked, and then find out that the other person is picked. Or, the one you like is picked, and it doesn’t work out. Or, the one you don’t like is picked, and it’s a HEA. I mean, heart strings are pulled, and well played. Who will you choose?
