HAVE NO SHAME is a New York Times & USA Today Bestseller
The racially-charged prejudice of the deep South forces eighteen-year-old Alison Tillman to confront societal norms and her own beliefs when she discovers the body of a hate crime victim, and the specter of forbidden love turns her safe, comfortable world upside down.
Alison 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.
"Have No Shame will resonate with readers who enjoyed The Help, To Kill A Mockingbird, A Time to Kill, and The Kitchen House."
Enjoyed this beautiful story.
Having lived in the South during the civil rights movement, it is accurate and well written. No exaggeration! It was that bad, the fears of those involved real.
This book was a great read. It was a bit predictable in a couple of places but very well written. If you liked The Help then give this one a try.
