    This is the second book in a series, but it is easily read as a stand alone story I would suggest reading Not Guilty first, however, to haveinsight into the characters and their motivations This book deals with abortion, murder, rape, and violence, but not in an overly graphic way Being a Christian book, it also shows characters turning to God for guidance and strength I enjoyed seeing Charity mature and grow throughout the story, as she tries to sort out her feelings about her biologi This is the second book in a series, but it is easily read as a stand alone story I would suggest reading Not Guilty first, however, to haveinsight into the characters and their motivations This book deals with abortion, murder, rape, and violence, but not in an overly graphic way Being a Christian book, it also shows characters turning to God for guidance and strength I enjoyed seeing Charity mature and grow throughout the story, as she tries to sort out her feelings about her biological father.The story is well written, with realistic dialog The characters are true to life, with one of them seeming very likable in the beginning, but turns out to have a hidden side, putting another character in danger The way that situation plays out is tense, to say the least I was given a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own

    Not Ashamed by Teresa Pollard and Candi Pullen is the second book in the Windspree series and is just as good as the first in the series Not Guilty.This book can be read and enjoyed without reading Not Guilty but I encourage you to read both Not Guilty deals with the rape of Charity s mother and Not Ashamed deals with Charity s feelings after finding out her father raped her mother.Charity has been a missionary kid in Africa and she comes back to Windspree to attend college and fin Not Ashamed by Teresa Pollard and Candi Pullen is the second book in the Windspree series and is just as good as the first in the series Not Guilty.This book can be read and enjoyed without reading Not Guilty but I encourage you to read both Not Guilty deals with the rape of Charity s mother and Not Ashamed deals with Charity s feelings after finding out her father raped her mother.Charity has been a missionary kid in Africa and she comes back to Windspree to attend college and finds a body in the exact spot her mother was raped and believes her father is to blame But Charity s uncle,the Chief of Police believes he is innocent Who is right Yes this book is Christian novel and deals with rape, and violence and murder and the issue of abortion, but it is a clean read.I am including two face book posts I posted when I first started reading Not Ashamed But I began to wonder how many of us have dry bones,spiritually Did a childhood injury cause an area of our life, even a tiny one, to be stunted or become over inflated There was a saying when I was growing up that said, Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me That saying is about as far from the truth as I am from the the farthest star in the universe Words,especially those we hear in childhood, can and often do shape our conception of who we are, and what we will become in our lives Or maybe our injury isn t that old but it s just as deadly It caused a root of bitterness to grow from a tiny grain until it s choking us with it s sour taste And because of it, we re not able to absorb God s Word like we used to and a real case of dry bones is setting in Yes this is a paragraph from another book I am reading Not Ashamed by Teresa Pollard.And though I haven t finished reading this book, I have only read 29% I think even if I don t like the rest of the book, just reading this much and the rest of the sermon, yes, this is part of a sermon by Hal Shepherd, I haven t wasted my time and while reading it I felt like I was in church listening to a real sermon there was a sentence or two, that told what Hal was thinking about while preaching, which to me made the storybelievable No one s forgotten,sweetheart, we ve just moved past the pain It s your decision, but just be sure you don t wait so long that the roots grow too deep to pull up the weed You do know that forgiveness isn t really for the benefit of the one forgiven It s for our own benefit Bitterness is poison to the soul, and a root of bitterness strangles the life out of anyone The joy of the Lord is our strength, and a bitter heart kills all joy They can t live in the same body One or the other dies from Not Ashamed by Teresa Polland Not Ashamed is a story of healing and forgivingness Not Guilty and Not Ashamed are not books that you can read without it touching your mind and heart, yes it will make you think, would I react the same way the characters did in this story I think the reason these books are sop great is because the story could be real and probably is somewhere in this world Like I have already stated these books deal with hard subjects but Christians are not immune from these things but these books lets us know that being raped is not the victim s fault and if you are a child from a rape you are not guilty and you have nothing to be ashamed of I have given Not Ashamed five stars.I was given a copy of Not Guilty by the publisher for my honest review
