Recommend Stories of Repentance!

Hey people, it’s that time again where I try to get you to do my homework–I mean, when I ask for your recommendations! I’m looking for stories about making amends: trying to acknowledge and in some way atone for harm done to another person. Novels are great! Movies, memoirs, concept albums… whatever comes to mind. Email me at or use the charming envelope link to your right.
