After the Shadows


Emily Leland returns to the town of Sweetwater Crossing Texas after her husband has been killed. She has no love loss from the cruel man she married a year ago. Left with nothing but her horse, she returns to face her angry sister, and a mystery about her fathers death. 

New school teacher Craig Ferguson comes to town with his young son to find the house he was to live in burned. Emily, alone and broke, is forced to convert her home into a boardinghouse which causes her relationship with her sister to spiral downward.

Amanda Cabot writes such compelling stories. Her characters are well developed, with emotions that are vulnerable as they touch on delicate situations.  Even though Emily and Craig must face their grief, it is a sweet love story, clean with faith as their bond.
