Redemption: Little One's Story is the second book in the Redemption Series by Lisa Slaton, narrated from the perspective of an entity that has been behind the thoughts of the protagonist. Lisa was diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder when she was still a little girl, thanks to childhood trauma. The story is told by an entity she created to deal with hardship, an entity called Little One, and this narrative explores how she eventually developed a strong and redeeming relationship with God.

The narrative starts in a strong and dramatic moment, a moment of crisis that explores the relationship between Lisa and her mother: “When Lisa saw the drops of blood on the kitchen floor, she was sure that one of her parents was dead. She hoped it was her mother.” But when she finds the shards of broken glass and crumpled beer cans and her mother slumped on the couch, and dried blood on her cheeks and her nose broken, she is terrified. But she doesn’t want her to see her standing there, an indication of the hostility between mother and daughter. This moment got me as I opened this book and I wanted to know more.

Redemption by Lisa Slaton is the story of Little One and how God used Little One and Lisa’s other alters to help her put her life together. There is no way the reader can resist following this story. It explores the theme of Divine Love and redemption; it also shows characters that are extraordinary. The author takes readers on an emotional roller-coaster and unveils powerful moments in her life. Redemption's narrative voice is strong and engaging and the story is filled with magical realism, an element that invites readers to explore the spiritual character of their personalities. It is gorgeous and inspiring.
