Based on the award-winning book and true story featured on The 700 Club, “DAMAGED GOODS reflects on the author’s journey of finding the answers to the questions, “Is there a purpose in the pain?”
Like every girl, Charlotte Hunt hoped for a life full of love, music, and joy. But her life was dramatically changed when she suffered abuse at the age of eighteen months until sixteen years old by seven perpetrators. Her pain was compounded by being told by a pastor, immediately after becoming a Christian, that she was damaged goods and God would never use her. In the midst of also being physically abused, bullied by schoolmates, and judged because of her past, she could have let her pain dictate her future.
Instead, she found herself in the hands of a God she had given up on and going through a journey to find a purpose she’d never dreamed of.
Charlotte’s amazing story from fame to losing everything, which is unflinchingly honest and deeply vulnerable, is a clear reminder that God can reveal His purpose through the deepest pain. More than a memoir, Damaged Goods offers hope to dream again for the unexpected and the impossible after people, situations, and life have convinced us to stop. Perhaps you, like Charlotte, find yourself wandering through the struggles of life. Regardless of your past or situation, you, too, can walk in your destiny.

“Damaged Goods is the best book I have read since the Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison. It is a page turner, encouraging, heartwarming, and inspiring, and I recommend it for everyone to read. It doesn’t matter whether your story is similar or totally different you will feel empowered after reading Damaged Goods, by Charlotte Hunt, one very courageous woman…”

“Damaged Goods was recommended to me by a well- respected friend. As a man with three daughters, Charlotte’s story would not allow me to put down the book. Through her shared pain, I am now a more attentive father and engaged husband.
This book is a must-read for anyone who is falling and thinks no one notices. Damaged Goods touches several lifestyle choices. And, it consistently teaches us that people fall, they hurt, but they can choose to keep moving.”

“I could not put your book down. I thought that when I got the book, I got it in the hopes that I could gain insight into helping my 8th graders. God had another plan, I needed to read it for me.”
