Lingering Shadows is Part 1 of a 3 book Christian Romance series, and is not a stand alone novel. It offers a PREVIEW of the series, and the story continues in Book 2 "Facing the Shadows"
Born of wealth and privilege, Elizabeth Walton-Smythe's future should have been set in stone. The headstrong teacher and her minister beau should have been married. That was the plan, as far as Lizzy was concerned. But, that wasn't to be, and one fateful encounter with a roguish Irishman quickly alters Lizzy's future and sends her heart and her life into a tailspin.
Marriage shouldn't have been an option, but in her haste to rebel and escape, it soon became her reality. Now, she's faced with a new, different kind of fateful decision. One which will test her faith and her resolve. With secrets from Daniel's past lurking and deep, dark secrets of her own to contend with, can the love that should have never been be salvaged, and will these two seemingly lost souls be able to endure the greatest challenge of their lives?
This is a Christian romance, a story of passion, love, and of God's inexplicable desire to free people from pasts that haunt them, so they can live a life full of His peace, love and forgiveness, regardless of the circumstances.

Q. So what makes "The Shadows Trilogy" special?
A. ""The Shadows Trilogy" is a series of Christian fiction romantic novels dealing with some very complex and challenging issues, including alcoholism and abuse, but the overall theme of the story is how God's love and forgiveness can change people's lives if they allow Him in, and I sincerely hope readers take heart from that. When I set out to write this series, I wanted to create a contemporary Christian romance with captivating, real life characters facing challenging, real life issues, and a story line that would touch reader's hearts. The books could be classified as Christian romantic suspense novels, as there's definitely an element of suspense in them.
Q. What order should I read the books in?
A. As the story unfolds progressively, it's important that you read them in order. Book 1: "Lingering Shadows", followed by Book 2: "Facing the Shadows", and then Book 3: "Beyond the Shadows".
Q. So, why should readers give these books a go?
A. Anyone looking for satisfying Christian romantic fiction with real life issues would enjoy this series. My hope is that by reading this Christian womens fiction series, my readers will be challenged to draw closer to God, and to let go of any shadows in their own past that might be holding them back from living a life full of God's grace, peace, and forgiveness.
Overall, I believe that "Lingering Shadows" is a Contemporary Christian romance novel that will appeal to any Christian woman seeking an enjoyable but challenging read.

“I will have the friends I want. I don’t care what boy likes me or what boy I like. You’re an awesome friend. I am not giving you up because we’re going to different schools or for any one person either.” – Elizabeth Wellsworth

Today's society is filled with broken homes and transient kids. While divorce was just starting to become more acceptable as I was growing up, it is now the norm and author Jason Zandri has written a very poignant tale of one family's experience in "As Life Goes: Elementary". The story of Mark and his son Matthew, who return to Mark's childhood hometown to start over after a divorce. The struggles of starting a new school and meeting new people are illustrated as are the pains of loss. This is a great story that I became quickly invested in and that I found very easy to relate to. Definitely recommend.
