Thats what happens to Carrie Conway. Its the Summer of 1990. Guns n'Roses are the biggest band in the world. A night out costs less than a tenner and that leaves you change for a bag of chips on the way home.
Carrie's working for pennies in a shop on Grafton Street, under the gimlet eye of a frustrated spinster, and she wants out! She's eighteen years old and bored to tears with her life (and on/off boyfriend Anto who can't seem to take NO for an answer) and on a night out in McGonagles, meets the most spectacularly beautiful man she has ever laid eyes on. His name is Steven Williams. And the best bit is he loves her too!
From that moment on, her life, changes, and how!
Escaping from her dysfunctional home, and the violence of her stepfather Noel, she moves into Steven's house and the relationship intensifies. She is blissfully happy and unaware of the battle that lies ahead.
But why is Carrie's mother so set against the relationship?
And why, when Carrie discovers that she is pregnant, does it start a chain of events that will destroy everything, and everyone in its path?
And who is the man called "The Spider" who's machinations are the cause of everyones troubles, and who won't rest till he has what he wants, at any price?
Chasing Shadows is the story of how love, real love, can survive anything.
Set in Dublin in the early 1990's and filled with a cast of unforgettable charactors, Chasing Shadows will keep you on the edge of your seat till the very last page.
Follow Carrie on her journey, as finds herself, and discovers who she really is, in the most unexpected way.
