Publisher's Summary

Ivy Jeffries falls hopelessly in love with Jonas Armstrong, a man who has forced himself into a somewhat reclusive lifestyle owing to his sordid past. Ivy is elated when he finally lets his guard down and kisses her. She thinks they are now moving forward into a relationship, until he tells her it meant nothing to him. How could a kiss like they shared mean nothing to him, when it meant the world to her? Then she discovers he is pulling away for a reason, to protect her. Is the love they share enough to withstand his past and the child he is protecting?

    "Easy to listen to"

    I really enjoyed the storyline, The characters are interesting. Ms Goss did a great job of telling a splendid tale of mystery and intrigue. Tolerance and intolerance, with romance and so much more added to the mix. I would definitely recommend this book.

    The narration was excellent really bringing the characters to life, very well done.

    "I thoroughly enjoyed this touching love story."
    Where does Shadow of Shame rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved them all, but related to Jonas the most.


    What does Tom Jordan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Tom really brings the characters to life. He added a lot of drama and depth to the story.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very much so. Laughed out load, cried on the inside.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the next in the series!

    Story
    "Wonderful Christian Romance😊"

    I enjoy Christian romance novels but I sometimes shy away from them because they can get too "preachy". This author, however, has a wonderful way of showing faith through lessons learned along with a believable heartfelt story and likable characters. A truly sweet journey that no one should miss.💕

    The wonderful narration added to the enjoyment of this book. Definitely putting both Author and Narrator on my list of "keepers".

    If you're looking for a quality Christian romance, give this Author a try. I was given this book for my unbiased review but would have gladly used a credit. 😀

    Story
    "Sweet Romance"

    This was my first Christian Historical Romance. Yes all of those lol. And honestly, I enjoyed it. It was good to take a break from my normal listening genre and try something new. So glad I did.

    Barb writes a story that has several layers. It is listed as Christian becauae of the references to God, forgiveness and the church. It is just enough not to be overbearing for those who may not be of the faith. The story also deals with race, and acceptance and a few "never saw that coming" moments.

    This is a love story and I enjoyed how the characters were developed and how Jonas's and Ivy's relatiinship grew overtime.

    Tom Jordan performs this book and as it being his debut did a wonderful job. Great tone, differences in characters were evident, and he has great pacing. I felt the emotions he provided and gave me a deeper understanding of what they were facing. Well done and looking forward to more of his work!

    Story
    "Wow... What a wonderfully-warm, fun listen."

    This story took me to a simpler time and place and led me on a journey with the two main characters, Jonas and Ivy. So many great lessons in this book, but it presented them without being preachy at all! Great storytelling works on at least two levels - the surface story, and the underlying motivations behind the characters actions - not always easy to portray, but Barbara nails it. You followed their tale and understood why they did the things they did - perfect storytelling.

    Tom Jordan's narration was warm, smooth, consistent, and the audio quality was top-notch. What a great voice to listen to for several hours. I can't wait to hear him in her next book.

    Story
    "Surprisingly good, a fast read, hooked in for more"

    At only four and a half hours long, lots of ground is covered, yet you don't feel rushed. I can appreciate this as occasionally books really only have this much material but stretch it out into much longer. That said, this is part 1 of a series, so more is coming, but I feel like I went on a journey with the characters just in this initial book. Initially I wondered if I would keep up and catch the plot, but the story quickly settles in and you're not letting go. There were only a couple free moments to catch your breath, but otherwise the story is a great way to commute or binge in your free time.

    Some stories make a mental image so clear and original in your head that I think it's better than any movie Hollywood could hope to string together, with all the necessary sexiness or action to keep some men or short attention spans interested.

    This story was not something I would've sought out on my own, but was offered a copy in exchange for an honest review, and now I'm very glad I did. I blasted through the story in a day and am looking forward to seeing more of Tom's work. The story does well on its own, but the diction, seamless transitions between accents for characters, and pace were excellent. This is important when it's not explicitly pointed out who's talking in the story. Hard to believe this is Tom's first major work here on Audible. He already just released Book 2, so I look forward to hearing more.

    I feel like others who've already written reviews have done a fine job of summarizing the story so I'll refrain from that redundancy, other than to say this was a more tasteful and moving experience than I knew to expect.

    I received a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    "One of THE Best Inspirational Romance Westerns"

    Shadow of Shame was such a fantastic listen. I'm so glad it's book one in the series. The story was a good solid one with characters I cared about and one not so much. I loved Ivy and Jonas and the other supporting characters were great as well. The little one Zoe was precious. And then there was Boyd the baddie.

    Barbara Goss did an excellent job writing this story. It was perfection. I look forward to more in this series. Definitely recommended.

    Tom Jordan was the perfect narrator for this story. His tone was even and he had great voice inflections. His character voices were the best. They were just right, not overdone or underdone. Perfectly done. I'll listen to him again.

    "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this honest review."

    "Enjoyed the story"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. This was a story of love, blackmail, forgiveness, and acceptance. Josh and Ivy have a road to travel to get to their HEA and it is filled with complications. Both of them know and trust God and they are willing to do what it takes to do God's will. I listened to this story in one setting and was glad I did. The story showed love in it's purest form and told a story of romance without all of the explicit descriptions. I enjoy all of Ms. Goss' books. Sad to know that Book 2 is not in audio yet.
