This is the story of a young couple’s trials after the heroine goes through a harrowing attack. Bride-to-be, Carrie Shepherd is raped just yards from her home, but is afraid to tell her parents, friends, and the police. Living in a private nightmare, she moves through her day-to-day activities in a daze, until she discovers she is pregnant, and is forced to tell her folks.

Now, the problem has magnified. Does Carrie even want to keep this baby? What about her fiancé, Joe Wright? Will he want damaged goods? If she decided to keep the baby, would he want to raise it as his own? What will her pastor father’s congregation think about her and Joe when it becomes obvious she was with child before their wedding?

Through this story, we see how people can react in both Godly and ungodly ways. We’re shown how submitting to the Lord can make all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are the called according to His purpose.

This book held my interest all the way through, and many of the characters were engaging. My favorite was a young man named Peter. Watch for him.

If you like to read “beauty for ashes” type novels, then you’ll like Not Guilty.
