Where Shadows Meet (Previously Pub. as Anathema)


Title:  Where Shadows Meet (Previously Pub. as Anathema)

Author:  Collen Coble

Pages:  336

Year:  2018

Publisher:  Thomas Nelson

My rating:  5 out of 5 stars

Personally, I like the new title compared with the older one; yet, both have a central place in the book!  I love reading Colleen’s books because of the tension, climax, suspense and entertainment she threads in her tales.  In this tale, we read about a meeting of two worlds, the Amish and English in the heart of one young woman named Hannah who views freedom to be in the English world after she tragically loses both parents.  Hannah makes a rash decision that sets her life on a course that brings pain, heartache, and questions to her heart for years.

When she fled her husband’s abuse and started a new life with a new name, she hoped to be free from him.  Yet, in her heart of hearts, she knew he would always be looking for her and one day somehow, he would locate her and force her to return to him.  When Hannah’s Aunt Nora sends a picture to her with a letter from her husband Reese, who she is separated from, its contents cause her heart to go in her throat and life once again is about to go into a whirlwind.

I was very engrossed in this book for hours and highly recommend this to those who love to read a good story with such suspense they cannot put the book down!  Coming later this year, Colleen Coble is releasing a book titled, Freedom’s Light, and I can’t wait to read it.  But until I am able, I will read other books I have yet to read by this author and others who know how to keep a reader turning pages long into the late-night hours!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
