Editorial Reviews

Review

From Liz Rose's Book Corner: First things first, I am a huge fan of Barbara Goss' work. I've been hooked ever since reading Temptation By Moonlight. After reading that first book, I ended up buying the rest of her novels and binge reading them, one a night. I credit authors Deeanne Gist and Barbara Goss for getting me into the Historical Romance genre, thanks to their wonderful books. Goss is an excellent writer, one who knows how to draw the reader in and keep them interested up to the very end. When you read one of her novels, you feel as though you've stepped into the story and are living alongside the characters, experiencing everything they're experiencing. You fall in love with the characters quickly, they're relatable and real. The stories are always superbly written with witty and interesting dialogue, and an intriguing plot. One of the many things I love about Goss' work is that each novel holds a strong Christian theme and message. You not only get an enjoyable, wonderful story, you also learn a valuable lesson from each book. 
Shadow of Shame finds Jonas Armstrong punishing himself for his sordid past and resigning himself to living like a recluse. But Jonas' lifestyle gets a big shake up when Ivey Jeffries moves to town. Ivey Jeffries moves to Abilene, Kansas with her family, after her minister father feels called to take the position as minister for Grace Church. Ivey quickly falls hopelessly in love with Jonas after meeting him on a hay ride. There's a great deal working against this couple's fate, including the fact that Ivey's father is the minister of the same church that kicked Jonas out years before. Jonas decides that it is best to turn Ivey against him in order to protect her pristine reputation, even though he wants nothing more than to spend the rest of his life with her. Ultimately, Jonas is forced to confront his feelings and how he has dealt with his past. Shadow of Shame has everything: love, blackmail, twists and turns, the works. 
Shadow of Shame is such a beautiful story about forgiveness and redemption, and carries an important message of God's grace. A lot of us, like Jonas, have a hard time forgiving ourselves for past actions. Our mistakes may not necessarily be on the same level as Jonas', but we can still understand holding our mistakes against ourselves and dolling out our own punishment. Shadow of Shame does a beautiful job of showing how that is wrong. God has forgiven us. His grace means that we are washed clean. We don't need to punish ourselves, in fact, if God forgives us, the least we can do is forgive ourselves! I truly appreciate and love the strong Christian theme and messages in Goss' books. 

From the Author

Shadow of Shame, was voted one of The 50 Self-Published Books Worth Reading (2015/16) by Read Freely.
