Let the Shadow Fall Behind You by Kathy-Diane Leveille

let the shadows fall behind you

Filled with quirky, heartwarming characters, this novel is a late coming-of-age story shaped by the eternal redeeming power of female friendship. Brannagh Maloney returns to her hometown for a reunion of old friends, carrying the burden of thinking she has lost her lover, Nikolai Mirsky. Once there, she finds it hard to ignore old family secrets, and decides to visit the house where she was raised and treated cruelly by her grandfather. Brannagh forces the old man to tell her what happened to her mother, and the shocking truth finally sets her free as she understands why her grandfather had acted so harshly. When Nikolai turns up unexpectedly, Brannagh’s life takes another turn as her mysterious past deepens.


I received this book from the author and was excited to get the chance to review it.  It was right up my alley with suspense as the backdrop.  This author has a way of developing the characters that makes you feel as if you have known them all your life. 

Brannagh Maloney has been fighting for a normal life for years.  She ends up working for Nikki – a wilderness preservationist in northern Ontario.  Nature runs its course and Brannagh ends up falling in love with Nikki.  When Nikki disappears, Brannagh is forced to deal with it, resorting back to feelings of being abandoned due to childhood trauma that has left her permanently scarred. 

This book weaves together multiple stories in such a wonderful way.  It delves into the traumas endured by its lead character and how it made her the adult she became.  It was hard for me to put down and I look forward to reading more by this very talented author.
