There is so much to like about Amanda Cabot’s latest Christian historical fiction novel, After the Shadows. Well-developed characters to love, an intriguing mystery to solve, a blossoming romance to root for, and of course, several characters to dislike.
Set in 1882, when Emily Leland returns home to Sweetwater Crossing, Texas, after her abusive husband dies, instead of the welcome she expects, she finds her father dead. Not believing the doctor’s report for the cause of death, she sets out to discover the truth. Along the way, she reconnects with old friends and makes new ones. One such friend is Craig Ferguson who works with Emily to solve the mystery of her father’s death.
After the Shadows is a fast-paced page-turner whose mystery unfolds bit by bit right up to the final page. If you enjoy Christian historical fiction with a touch of mystery thrown in, this may just be the book for you.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
