Bookworm, writer, radio host—I blog about history, fiction, and publishing in the Internet Age. You can find the full blog on my website. This space is for books.
I love modern-day mysteries with roots tangled deep in the past—family secrets, century-old tragedies, trails of clues that force me to think yet still surprise me in the end. This beautifully written story fulfills all those requirements and tosses in a set of interesting characters and stunning descriptions of the Welsh countryside. I read half the story in one evening and still wanted to know what would happen next to Sarah and Danny. You can find my full review at http://blog.cplesley.com/2013/11/long-shadows.html.
As mentioned in the blog post, the author sent me a free e-book copy for my honest review.
