A captivating historical romance
on 21 December 2010
Shadows of the Past is a great read; lovely characters and a terrific story that stays with you long after you've reached the final page. There's a touch of Bronte about it, especially in the way the author vividly evokes how the past casts its shadow over the future. Elaine Shelabarger's second book has all the ingredients for whiling away a perfect afternoon; captivating characters, a page-turning plot, a fascinating historical setting and a timeless and universal theme - the redeeming power of love.
Can't wait for the sequel!
