    Sherry Moore's plot successfully draws readers in and holds them captive.

    Like most 17 year olds, Samantha Higgins knows it all. Through a series of events, she ends up living in her vehicle. Along came a knight in shining armor of was he. Was Kyle her savior? The next four years of her life prove differently. He rapes, abuses, controls and holds her prisoner. Finally, she escapes to begin a new life in Missouri. Kyle was not ready to let her go. He makes her life a living hell, stalking, terrorizing her day and night.

    Sherry Moore's plot successfully draws readers in and holds them captive. I felt as though I was watching the nightmare Samantha was living. I wanted to reach out to her and pull her away from the horrendous situation she was living. No man or woman should ever have to face the violence, imprisonment, and abuse that our heroine in Shadows to The Past faced. Samantha shows great courage and poise in the way she handled the situation. I will not give the plot away but I encourage readers to pick up a copy of this book to see how Samantha fares.

    Intriguing

    Sherry Moore¿s SHADOWS OF THE PAST is a methodical presentation of one man¿s reign, terror and illusiveness; a true Casanova, his heart fueled with lechery and hatred. He is obtrusive and rambunctious to those close to him, to those who love him. With unremitting curiosity, we watch the plight of one woman¿s heightened determination to jump each hurdle he plants in her way. To stay free from harm, to stay safe from a raucous maniac that¿s on the prowl! Paulette Stewart Author of (1) Castle Pines (2) Brusque

    Shadows of the Past

    Reviewed by Christie Schmutzler: The only word I can use to describe 'Shadows of the Past' is captivating. It holds your attention from beginning to end. I give this book five stars. Poor Samantha Higgins is on an emotional roller coaster ride that doesn't seem to want to come to a stop. You feel the pain she feels and the fear she feels as you read this spellbinding book. The book leaves you wanting more. A great read by Sherry Moore.

    An Exciting Read!

    ¿Shadows of the Past,¿ a moving story of a runaway girl, filled me with compassion. In her desperate search for shelter, teenager Samantha Higgins finds herself in frightening captivity at the hands of a man whose initial friendliness turns to eerie abuse. Samantha¿s struggle to escape this increasingly demonic predator left me breathless. I can¿t wait to read the sequel! Review by Laura Somers, Author of 'Didn't See It Coming.'

    Captivating, worth reading

    'Shawdows of the Past' was well written. I was impressed with how it flowed, the paragraph transitions were good. The chapters tight and crisp. The author is emerging as a good writer who conveys the feelings and fears of an abusive situation very well. She goes on to offer hope to those who may find themselves in such a situation.
