I was asked to be part of a book tour for debut author, Nicole T Smith, and even before reading the blurb I said yes. Why? Because one day (hopefully soon) I will be in the same position and I love supporting new writers. I have very eclectic tastes in books, so I was very open to reading this one, but honestly I like it a whole lot! We have Shadows Too It is a brilliant book filled with shadows and secrets which drew me in, and on one occasion left me lying in a bath of cold water, because I had to read on.
Rella Cooper is a successful architect with a bright future but
furtive whispers rustle in the recesses of her mind. Parts of a troubled past
lie concealed deep in her subconscious, along with trauma she has no memory
Shocked and destabilized by what she learns during a therapy
session, Rella’s sanity spirals out of control. Not all is how it seems.
Is it better to live in the shadows? Or with a truth you can’t share?
I am not going to give any spoilers, because I think the beauty in
the story unfolding is precious and I want everyone who reads this wonderful
book to experience what I felt, as Rella, the main character bravely looked into her own past and her pain
to uncover the person she has become.
It’s a story about family, fractures and pain, but also a story
about unbelievable strength. Rella is a
flawed person, but aren’t we all.
