Charity's Child by Rosalie Warren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The narrator plunges us immediately into the mystery of Charity's pregnancy, then takes us back to how it all began, when Charity arrived in town and joined the 'Crabbies'. Her religious fervour made her an instant favourite with the assistant pastor, and Joanne, the narrator.

As the story unfolds and news of the pregnancy comes out, the Crabapple Christian Fellowship is tossed into turmoil. The story of Charity's Child is more than just the tale of two teenage girls trying to cope with the unexpected change. As Joanne tries to figure out her own sexuality and feelings for Charity, as well as the insistence that Charity's child was made by God, so the adults around them try to cope with their own issues, triggered by the potential scandal brewing in their midst.

I read the book in one day. It's very accessible and the narrative flows very easily. It is an easy book to read but one that gives the reader a lot to think about. The characters are engaging, wonderful and flawed.

This sounds like a good read, thanks for the review... Been looking for a lower-priced but still good Kindle book lately.
