Overview

Let Elizabeth Blackwell recall for you a summer of intrigue and an event that changed her life forever.
“I didn’t know it at the time, but the events that were unfolding were the beginning of my life changing. I watched Daddy disappear down to the dock, when the only thing visible was a small flicker from his flashlight in the distance. There were no sounds. How strange this was. Momma and I stood there looking out the old screen door. I’m not sure why Daddy went down to the dock; the screaming didn’t even come from that direction. I didn’t ask. Momma made a fuss but Daddy ignored her. I suppose I kept quiet because I knew the pecking order and knew my place, besides, the man was my Daddy and he must have known what he was doing. His time investigating seemed endless.”
Liz has a cursed life, expected to follow her father into the family fishing business but she rebelled and only wished she had the life of other wealthy Savannahians. From her family’s dock she can see the Ely’s mansion across the marsh that holds their namesake. Liz wallows in pity and finds the hard road of alcohol and drugs the route to escape her unhappiness. Misfortune follows her as she is whirled into a murder mystery and attempts to escape to a small fishing village in Northern Florida. She eventually must face her demons, her family, and herself to come to grips with the realities of her life.
In the Shadow of Ely Marsh, explores life’s toughest challenges through adventure, mystery, crime, and redemption. You will meet her upstanding and over achieving big brother Wright; her nemesis and former lover Wade Turner, and Dixie, a friend to whom Liz unexpectedly seeks to escape from her troubles. The characters create intrigue as well as adventure and soul searching as you venture into the Shadow of Ely Marsh.

    Not very impressed. The editing was horrible. You're vs your.

    Not very impressed. The editing was horrible. You're vs your. i vs I. They changed someone's name for a few pages. The ebook was 292 pages and that was enough for me. I'm glad it wasn't any longer.

    Well edited and a little bit different from most books, about 400 pages, good for the most part.

    This 400 page free book is not your run of the novel, it reads like a biography of a woman and a very important summer in her life. It is mostly first person. The only complaint I have about this book is the way it jumps from different ages and stages in the woman's life. Sometimes she is sixty and sometimes 14 or 16 or 32, the author gives the reader no indication of the change and the details have to be figured out by the reader. At one point she was 12, the next chapter, she was drunk, partying and driving. The next thing I knew she was on the run and 32. Very confusing. It jumped back and forth a lot. The man that wrote this did an excellant job of descriptions of the area where the book was set. He also did an excellant job of describing the feelings of a woman. I honestly thought this was a real life bio of a woman, and was shocked to learn it was a male author and a work of fiction, after I finished the book. It was a good read. For readers age 16 and up, looking for something a bit different. More for women then men. It does contain some mild violence and a non descriptive murder. There are a few references to drug use and sex, as well as some underage drinking. I would not be ashamed to loan this one to a friend. I would read this author again.

    This was a story about consequences of choices made by main character Elizabeth, and their effect on family and friends, as well as the toll her choices took on her. It was an interesting read which I would recommend.

    Good read!

    A nice break from reality. Thanks for bringing the sights, smells and sounds to a landlocked girl.
