Shadows takes you back in time when the simple things in life were so challenging to accomplish. Jules Nelson writes in a way that makes you feel you are with Emma. You are alongside Emma doing her daily tasks while caring for her family then she finds her soul mate and everything changes. There is sadness, danger and excitement between the characters. Great read! Looking forward to see what happens next...
I loved this book! You will be drawn into the characters and their lives right from the beginning...and you won't be able to stop reading until you reach the very unexpected ending. Jules Nelson has beautifully written a realistic, intriguing, "tug at your heart" story of love and family. I am eagerly waiting for the sequel. Would recommend for teens to adult.
