    I thought this was a compelling read with some thought provoking themes The central characters were Olivia and Ned who were both damaged in different ways They met in Port Townsend Washington where both of them fled to attempt to deal with their issues Ned was physically and mentally damaged by an IED in Afghanistan It’s not clear what Olivia was struggling with until later in the book which I won’t spoil here They both attend

    The writing was decent I guess but I had absolutely no sympathy for the heroine She was rude disdainful and pretty spoiled The Big Incident that messed her up took waaaaay too long to be revealed we’re talking past the 50% point by which point she had alienated pretty much everyone around her And then an epilogue tacks

    I think I’ve read all of Carol Mason’s novels and pretty much knew what to expect her plots are essentially romantic stories set in the English North east which avoid the ‘chick lit’ label by being a bit gritty sad insightful intelligent and grounded Therefore I started ‘The Shadow Between Us’ with this expectation but

Ies she’d rather forgetCan Olivia find the courage to confront what she’s hiding from and finally begin to heal the wounds that have torn her life apart From the bestselling author of After You Left comes a story about finding hope in second chance. Carol Mason the best selling author of After You Left has written an incredibly moving and poignant novel in this slow burn very beautiful work of fiction Olivia moves to the pretty coastal town of Port Townsend with her marriage on the rocks and her life in pieces She doesn t know if things with her husband Mark are truly over or uite why the phone call she longs for on her daughter s birthday will never comeAfter joining a letter writing club held at her local cafe she meets Ned an ex soldier badly wounded in Afghanistan This chance friendship revives unexpected emotions and memories she d rather forgetCan Olivia find the courage to confront what she s hiding from and finally begin to heal the wounds that have torn her life apartLiv as she is known to her husband is an extremely intriguing character Regularly displaying a cocktail of emotions I could still really empathise with her She could be caring and thoughtful one minute but then be frank blunt and very much to the point the next moment At times she was positively distant and unkind She was not alone in her attitude and behaviour as some of the other characters in the story shared similar traits such as cafe owner Beth For me this added to and complemented this wonderful character driven storyTHE SHADOW BETWEEN US was a very insightful and thought provoking read about reflecting on the mistakes we sometimes make and finding hope in second chances I very much liked the emphasis on letter writing reading and uotes from favourite books running throughout the story The dialogue between Olivia and Ned was lovely and liked how they had an almost immediate connection I was very keen to see how their relationship might develop I found THE SHADOW BETWEEN US a very enjoyable read helped by Carol Mason s beautiful writing which has depth and substance The ending was very fulfilling although with an unexpected twist I will definitely be reading of her books in the future Thanks to NetGalley Lake Union Publishing and Carol Mason for my ARC of TheShadowBetweenUs in exchange for an honest review

Summary The Shadow Between Us

The Shadow Between Us

What is it about the coast that attracts people running from their pastWhen Olivia moves to Port Townsend her marriage is floundering and her life is in pieces She doesn’t know if things with her husband Mark are truly over or uite why the phone call. Whenever I read a book from a new to me author I m always excited of course but also oddly nervous as I m never uite sure what to expect The description of this one appealed to me I got a Catherine Ryan Hyde sort of vibe from it and while that s somewhat fitting Mason has a uniue style that is all her own This was so much than I expected in a good way this had depth and heart and was written in such a pretty style I m a new fan of the author nowIt s clear from the start that Olivia is troubled and running from something it s not just her strained marriage to her husband Mark or even just her issues with her daughter you get the sense that it s something deeper and despite this not being a mystery that aspect kept me guessing throughout I wanted to know what had happened to Olivia in her past what had caused her pain enough pain that she fled her home to live someone brand new She was a complex character for sure I found her fascinating and by the time I finished the book and everything came together it was a lightbulb moment for me everything made sense suddenlyBesides Olivia and Mark there are a handful of secondary characters that added another dimension to the story Beth is the woman who owns the local coffee shopbookstore and Ned is an ex soldier with his own demons Olivia s developing relationships with both characters were telling both because they were all harboring guilt and murky histories but also because of how all three of them helped each other deal with their issues I learned a lot about each character based on their interactions with each other and to see relationships being newly formed that weren t romantic was a surprising treatThis had some heavy themes that I won t get into because I don t want to spoil things this is not a light read it s a thought provoking one It s fast paced and I read it uickly even for me because I was so desperate to find out the secrets Olivia was carrying and it paid off in the end big timeThe Shadow Between Us in three words Lyrical Emotional and Moving
