The Shadow Between Us, by Carol Mason, is a story about finding hope in second chances.
The synopsis says: "What is it about the coast that attracts people running from their past? Maybe there's something in a sea breeze that blows away your problems. Maybe when you look out at the ocean you can see the future; forget the secrets and pain holding you back. Or at least you can forget them for a time.
When 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 quite why the phone call she longs for on her daughter's birthday will never come.
Joining a letter-writing club seems like a harmless decision. But when she meets Ned, an ex-soldier badly wounded in Afghanistan, this unlooked-for friendship revives unexpected emotions and memories she'd rather forget.
Can Olivia find the courage to confront what she's hiding from and finally begin to heal the wounds that have torn her life apart?" The Shadow Between Us is out in March 2019.
