Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “The Shadow Between Us” by Carol Mason , March 21, 2019
Carol Mason, Author of “The Shadow Between Us” has written an intriguing and entertaining novel. The Genres for this Novel are Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Mystery and Suspense. The time-line for the story is in the present and goes back to the past when it pertains to the characters or events in the story. The author describes her characters as complex, complicated, secretive and dysfunctional
There are dark secrets and twists and turns in this story. I never expected what the ending reveals. Olivia seems to be running from her problems, and her marriage. She seems to be grasping at straws when she moves to Port Townsend, a small town. Olivia meets some other quirky characters that seem to be keeping secrets as well. Olivia isn’t clear if her marriage is over.
Olivia decides to join a writer’s correspondence club, where she meets Ned, a soldier with physical and emotional injuries. Can one truly run from their memories? I would recommend this novel for those readers who enjoy a mystery. I received an ARC from NetGalley.
