Shadow of Shame: Book One of the Shadow series
By Barbara Goss
Jonas Armstrong’s sordid past forces him into a reclusive lifestyle.
But, when Ivy Jeffries falls hopelessly in love with him, he is forced to turn her against him to protect her pristine reputation—even though he wants nothing more in life than a relationship with her. Will he find a way to leave his past behind him and move forward with his life? How can he stop the enemy who is blackmailing him, and threatening to blacken his name further?
How does this book “tie” to the previous book listing?
Shadow of Shame ties into Maybe You Should Move Those Away From You because there are all sorts of addictions: overeating, drinking, drugs, sex, just to name a few. Addictions are not easy to break, and we need loved ones who care to help us. In Shadow of Shame, my hero is an eighteen-year-old who is “sowing his oats.” He broke away from God and the church with this behavior. He soon learns he now has to pay a penalty for his behavior and he feels his life is ruined. He gets himself right with God, but not with himself. He feels the guilt as a heavy burden that he must carry. He becomes a near recluse for five years until loved ones finally are able to break through his barrier of guilt. Guilt of this type is an addiction. When the woman he loves is in danger, he is forced to leave his comfort zone of five years to rescue her.
