UNASHAMED (4) by Francine Rivers is not a romance per se but a Bible study based on the story of Rahab, an unconventional Old Testament woman. Bright and articulate, Rahab refuses to become the discarded chattel of the king of Jericho. She reigns over her fury, pretending to enjoy his embrace, biding her time until the opportunity to escape. Israelite emissaries provide that opportunity.

She senses they are not only the answer to her immediate problems, but ultimately the future of her family. Her hope is in the God who has delivered the Israelites.

Ms. Rivers has chosen unlikely heroines: women who make mistakes yet triumph with the help of God. They become the very people to change eternity.
