A Shadow From the Past by B. Weston Rook


Randy Curtis was a shy backward kid who grew up in the sleepy town of Edgewater.  Naturally, the girl who he loved, Lori, didn’t feel the same way about him.  And of course, he was always the target of schoolyard bullies, particularly Brad Bedford.  On the night of graduation, he finally and dramatically taught his tormentors a lesson and revealed his feelings for Lori, and then disappeared with no intentions of ever returning.  But years later, when his mother’s death is clouded in suspicion, he returns to Edgewater only to find that he not only has to face his past, but also deal with a complex set of new enemies and obstacles.

A Shadow From the Past is an earnest novel, deeply felt and worked out with a good deal of honesty and force.  Randy Curtis, returning to Edgewater after a mysterious 10-year absence for his mother´s funeral is able at last to set his life to rights, reconcile and find true love with Lori, the girl who had abandoned him (and who he in turn had abandoned), and bring to justice the four teenagers who terrorized his helpless mother.  But in the process Randy is forced to become something dark, something secret, something that he fears will ultimately be his own demise.

It's a fun story. Classic tale of boy who comes home and battles his past. The LDS background is just that... background. It doesn't play a big part in the story, but it would be enjoyable for Mormon readers. Nothing really objectionable for younger readers. Overall, it reaches the level of a good book, but there are parts of this book that are truly magical and unforgettable. It's a heartfelt book. For those parts alone, this book is worth reading.
