Welcome to our TBR Thursday event, hosted by Kimberlyfaye Reads. It’s simple…we share a book that’s been on our TBR Shelves for a while.
Today’s pick is one I’ve had on my Kindle since May 2014. Yes, a long time. I must have had a good reason for downloading it, but for some reason, I haven’t yet read it.
Have No Shame, by Melissa Foster, was published January 2, 2014, and is a story spotlighting what happens when civil rights and forbidden love collide…
Synopsis: Alison Tillman has called Forrest Town, Arkansas home for the past eighteen years. Her mother’s Blue Bonnet meetings, her father toiling night and day on the family farm, and the division of life between the whites and the blacks are all Alison knows. The winter of 1967, just a few months before marrying her high school sweetheart, Alison finds the body of a black man floating in the river, and she begins to view her existence with new perspective. The oppression and hate of the south, the ugliness she once was able to avert her eyes from, now demands her attention.
When a secretive friendship with a young black man takes an unexpected romantic turn, Alison is forced to choose between her predetermined future, and the dangerous path that her heart yearns for.
What do you think? Have you read it? Should I bring it to the top of my TBR?
