The Weight of Shadows.
The title intrigued me. The Weight of Shadows. A profound description of how the heaviness of one’s past can remain a burden in the present.
I met the author, Alison Strobel last year at ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) Conference. We sat at the same table, and I shared with her a copy of my compilation Pearl Girls: Encountering Grit Experiencing Grace. We talked about how the proceeds from my book goes to Wings www.wingsprogram.com to help fund a safe house in the Chicago suburbs. Alison then told me about Weight of Shadows and how it addresses the pain of domestic violence. Here is a poignant trailer about this compelling book: http://www.alisonstrobel.com/trailers
As you turn the pages, you will immediately be drawn into the story and stay up late to read each word. This gripping novel explores how the choices we make—and the courage we find to forgive—can touch the lives of others forever.
Leave a comment on this blog post, and you will be entered to possibly win a copy of The Weight of Shadows. Also, on July 18th, Alison will choose one commenter from the blog tour to either receive either autographed copies of her first three books or a gift card to a favorite bookstore.
Visit her website: www.alisonstrobel.com for more exciting details about her books and ebooks.
Have a great 4th of July!
