"Rahab. A woman with a past to whom God gave a future." Taken from the back cover, this is what the book is about. The front cover says it is a novella, and as such it is a quick read, but it is a packed read. It is well worth the time it will take you to read it. It gives a very clear picture of the mercy of God and gives a whole new appreciation of the story of the fall of Jericho.
Unashamed fits in the 2nd Reading Challenge, because Francine River is an author I really loved in the past and I wanted to read more by her. It also fits the Biblical Fiction Challenge as it tells the story of Rahab from Joshua 2-6.
