It may have happened twenty years ago, but to Charity, who only recently learned the truth it’s like it happened yesterday.

Charity has always known the man she called Father truly wasn’t, what she didn’t know was that she was conceived during a rape.

Now, it seems that everyone has forgiven the assailant, now a preacher, except her and since she’s already suspicious when a dead body is found on their property Charity knows just who is to blame.

Because obviously once a criminal always a criminal, right?

Hott Review:

We just jumped right into the plot!

While I really enjoyed Not Ashamed, there were times that it kind of drug.

On the plus side, Not Ashamed is one of the most inspiring books I’ve read. So many times I’ve read books when the Christianity feels forced. It’s not so with this novel. The authors have created real Christians, with real faith, and real problems.

Teresa Pollard’s Author Bio:

Teresa Pollard is from Richmond, Virginia, and was saved at a young age. She has a Masters degree in English and Creative Writing from Hollins College, and has served as a Sunday School teacher and children’s worker for most of the last forty years. Married for forty years, she was devastated by divorce and the death of her youngest daughter, but God has blessed her with a new home and another grandson, and she now resides in Dacula, Georgia.
As an Air Force brat and having spent nine years as a navy wife, Candi Pullen has lived more places than she can name, including Morocco and Libya. After the death of her first husband and the death of their daughter, Andrea, nine years later, she felt that God was calling her to use that pain to minister to others who needed God’s healing comfort. In 2007, she earned her Bachelor of Theology degree. She now teaches discipleship classes, mentors new believers and those wishing to find all the Lord has for them, and writes a daily devotional on Facebook, Good Morning, Papa! She lives in New Port Richey, FL, with Drew, her husband of 18 years.
