David Chambers was born into a strictly religious family. As members of the Eternal Fellowship, they have chosen to reject the ways of the world and have separated themselves from the rest of humanity.
As his arranged marriage to another follower – a woman he has come to dislike – looms ever closer, David decides to break off the engagement. This comes as a shock to his betrothed, his family and the wider Fellowship community.
When the beautiful Alison Johnson, a non-believer and former classmate re-enters his life, David makes a series of decisions that will change his life forever.
Righteous Release will captivate the mind of the reader as David begins a life that is beyond his comfort zone. There are a number of difficulties to overcome as he adapts to his new existence.
Has David jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire?
Will he return to what he knows or embrace his newfound freedom?
Richard Gardner has lived in South-East London for many years. Married to a nurse, he has a daughter, a son and – at this moment in time – four grandchildren.

Righteous Release is his first novel and he hopes to write many more.

“A brilliant accomplishment from a very fine author. Although highly entertaining, this beautifully written novel is thought provoking as it shines a light on certain dogmatic beliefs.” Hardwick.
“I thoroughly enjoyed Righteous Release from start to finish. David’s struggle to find freedom is an interesting insight into a different community within modern Britain, however it also gives the reader a chance to look at our society from an “outsiders” perspective. The book has a certain sadness about it but also had me laughing out loud in places! I would definitely recommend Righteous Release.” Reggy97.
“Having read Iniquitous Lives by Richard Gardner I was keen to read his first book and with a glowing review I had no hesitation in taking the plunge. Another well written and insightful book that tackles an interesting theme with many astute observations it was enjoyable whilst encouraging some deeper reflection and thought. All I could want from a book over a cold and dreary winter weekend.” Danny.
“An exciting novel which leaves the reader in suspense until the last page. However, the book has a deeper meaning and questions the morality of both the religious fringes and the world of politics.” Sherpa.
