5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful... 17 Sept. 2013
By A Navy Vet...VT town - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A powerful short story that speaks large volumes in a few words. It speaks of racism, discrimination and segregation without being "preachy".

In synopsis (without a spoiler) there are people that cast no shadows. These are the ones that are discriminated against by the powers to be.

Most highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Born In Sin"........ 18 Sept. 2013
By Robin Lee - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a short, quick read that speaks volumes..Very emotional tale set in a future world with underlying message of never, ending racism..Imagine you are little girl and one day while playing with the other children you can't make "puppet shadows" in the sun...You are bullied and laughed at by your friends that you now no longer have..You ask your Mom but all she will tell you is, "my shadow will always be your shadow"..Then another day you notice your Dad doesn't have a shadow either, and Mom says, "my shadow is also your father's shadow"...Being born an innocent child in a world where "shadows" are important there severe consequences...

You can't help who you fall in love with...

5.0 out of 5 stars Would I read more from this author? Absolutely. Well thought out and presented. 17 Nov. 2013

So sad to be in those circumstances. The shadow is a good place to be for it is a good shadow. This story was gently presented.
