TO READ AN OUT-TAKE:
The Civil War rages, and Rebekah fights to keep her world intact. Loss and sorrow seeps into her heart. Her sights on Oregon, she prays New Eden will be a place of peace for her and her son. A refuge. She travels to Missouri to start her journey and is denied the
opportunity to join the train. (A wagon train)
Matthew battles his way through the war thinking of Rebekah, planning to help her west.
He fears his biggest battle lies ahead.
Will Rebekah open up her heart and allow him to be the one to hold her when The Shadows Fall?
I've taken the liberty of placing the following excerpt from something author, Tina Pinson has in the very beginning of her book. This is an exceptional premise to the story, WHEN SHADOWS FALL;
"Life is a mixture of joys and sorrows,
Where darkness and light mingle to cast shadows upon your soul.
These shadows, often fleeting, touch us far deeper than their hazy essence ever deemed possible. . ."~ Rebekah Cavanaugh ~ April 1864
There is more to that but I want YOU to read it with the book.
This book is a MUST read! BUT be prepared because you won't be satisfied until you have the second book, Shadowed Dreams in your library when it's released in November 2012 as well.
Tina Pinson has done an amazing job entwining historical facts and fiction without sacrificing either the story or the realistic.
I have to admit, I tend to skirt Civil War stories due to the horrific pain of war those of the North and South both suffered, often with brothers actually fighting brothers over a cause that left scars on slaves and free alike.
This story gripped me and had me turning pages without a sense of time, I was so caught up in Rebekah's plight and her courageous strength I didn't pay attention to the fact I was at the end of book one until it was there.
I really didn't want the story to end. I was ready to continue on into Shadowed Dreams but Tina tells me I have to wait until November.
