Through the Shadows (Abingdon, May 2016)
As San Francisco rises from the ashes, an age-old battle looms between corruption and the promise of new beginnings.
The devastating earthquake is just two years past, but the city of San Francisco is still trying to recover. Destruction of this magnitude is not so easy to overcome-and neither are the past regrets shadowing Elizabeth King’s hopeful future.
Hoping to right her wrongs, Elizabeth dedicates herself to helping girls rescued from slavery in Chinatown brothels, even if it means putting her own life at risk to sneak through the gloomy alleys and rooftops where dangers lurk.
Putting her life on the line for a worthy cause is admirable. But opening her heart is even more terrifying. So when Elizabeth meets attorney, Charles McKinley—a man who dreams of reforming San Francisco’s crooked politics—Elizabeth begins to doubt: Can she maintain her pretense and hide her past? Or will her secret jeopardize both their futures?

My Take~

Shadows are a place to hide, especially when we are doing something wrong or hiding from the truth. In this third book of the Golden Gate Chronicles we find ourselves in 1908 as San Francisco continues to recover from the earthquake. I haven't read the previous books in the series, but I was able to follow the story without a problem. The characters are real and the story is believable. Karen removes the shadows and in the truth, Amazing Grace is found. I enjoyed this book.
