Review: Shadows of Yesterday

Book Review: Shadows of Yesterday, by Sandra Brown, 3 stars

✩✩

LEIGH . . . She was terrifyingly alone on a Texas highway about to deliver her first child when a rugged stranger in a pickup truck stopped to help her. Leigh Bransom had lost her husband eight months before when he was tragically killed on the job. This fateful meeting on a lonesome highway brought a handsome, new man into her life...yet he was a man with secrets and the power to break her heart again.
CHAD . . . He pursued a dangerous business, and his past was a mystery he kept hidden. He was determined to make Leigh care for him, but there were no guarantees that his love could protect her from her worst fears.

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: although there are fairly recent reprints and Kindle editions, this book was originally published in 1983

Mature content: yes

Review: For such an early book by Sandra Brown, Shadows of Yesterday isn't that bad. The plot is fairly streamlined, and the characters could be a bit more developed. Leigh, in particular, behaves like a very silly girl sometimes - right from when she decides to drive on a deserted motorway during the Texas summer while in labor, until the part where she deals that ugly "you don't love me enough" card.

Still, it's a very quick read, with a simple plot and a happily ever after - and sometimes that's all we need to unwind for a while. If you can get past the fact that it was written 35 years ago and therefore is very outdated, you may want to give it a try.

Happy readings,
