Penance. A punishment. Something done to repent a sin. How does someone atone for something that was never their fault? Five young girls went out to play but only four ever made it home. Those four girls did not witness the murder, but they did see the murderer, and the body, and have to live with the trauma. As if that were not enough, the killer was not caught, and the mother of the victim blamed them. In the course of that single event, the lives of these four girls was forever changed, and affected every aspect of their lives as they grew from happy children to the troubled young women that they were never meant to be. 4 out of 5 stars

I received a complimentary copy for review. ( )

I originally wrote this review for my blog: https://turnthepage.travel.blog/2019/05/02/penance-by-kanae-minato/

This book is focuses on the murder of a ten year old girl named Emily in a small Japanese village. There are six chapters in this book, all set fifteen years after the crime. The first four chairs describe the day of the murder from the perspective of each of Emily’s four friends, as well as giving the reader a glimpse into their home lives and also done information about how they have grown up. The second last chapter is written from the perspective of Emily’s mother, and the final chapter is a short conclusion.

I really enjoyed this book. I loved how different each character was, and how uniquely each girl was effected by the death of their friend. I found the book to be very believable and at no point did I feel that this was written be someone who had never experienced this tragedy. Each chapter tied beautifully into each other, and helped in telling the story and clarifying the plot.

One of the biggest things that I liked about this book was how quickly it changed my opinions of some characters – a person who seems to be so genuinely selfless and kind can become a monster within paragraphs, similarly a heartless individual can suddenly, and convincingly, become relatable and sincere. This is all done through that specific character, or a character who is involved in their story, being given their own chapter and having their tale told fully.

This is a very dark book at times, it contains details of murder and child molestation, but I didn’t find that these topics were dwelled on or give into more detail than was necessary.

I would strongly advise this book to anyone who is looking for a short, well written, twist filled thriller with brilliant character development and a satisfying conclusion. ( )

10-year old friends Sae, Maki, Akiko, Yuka, and Emily are playing in the schoolyard when Emily is lured away by a man. It’s a bit later when the other girls find Emily’s dead body. In Japan, there is (or was) a statute of limitations of 15 years. When, after a few years, the murderer is still not caught, Emily’s mother tells the four girls they will pay if the murderer is not found. Fifteen years later, the four girls are adults now, but they have been drastically affected by their friend’s murder and her mother’s curse.

I liked this. Each chapter was from a different character’s point of view as an adult and looking back on what happened when Emily was killed. There was also a chapter (after the four girls’ chapters) narrated by Emily’s mother. The chapters (and book as a whole) was fairly short, so trying to remember who was who was a bit tricky, but it usually only took a small reminder for me to remember each story as I continued through the book.

Penance is slow burn revenge tale of four very damaged girls after they witness their friends brutal assault and murder. The murder isn't a mystery, nor is what happens to the dead girl slowly exposed over the course of the novel. All that is revealed in the opening chapter. The facts are not in dispute. What is divulged in confessional chapters are the feelings and consequences for the four girls who witnessed and reported the key events. Each feels an overwhelming quilt and is psychologically damaged by what they witnessed. With the victim's mother only adding to their damage by further augmenting their feelings of guilt through intimidation and curses, leading to the damage manifesting itself in very different self-destructive ways with deadly consequences as the girls become women.

Minato is brilliant at making psychological damaged people make sense. Their actions flow so naturally from the feelings that everything that happens to them or by them is just a logical and natural outcome. Never is there a question about the authenticity of the characters actions. Not as thrilling as or as surprising as Confessions, but I think I'll appreciate what Minato has written here more the further I get away from this one. ( )
