One of those authors that I’ve been talking to is Casey Bond. A wonderful person, and lovely to speak with. We’re exchanging books soon, and I’ll be reading and reviewing her novel, Winter Shadows, which releases Oct. 29th this year! So without ado, here’s a bit about her and her book:
She’s a Goodreads Author. Seek Casey Bond and ye shall find her! She’s on Twitter; follow her at @authorcaseybond. Her website is gorgeous (makes me jealous since I’ve got a wife that designs websites professionally, but just has never had the time to whip me up an author’s website). http://caseybond.tateauthor.
–where you can also find her blog. She’s a Mom and reads and writes after her beautiful
little girls go to bed. Winter Shadows is her first novel and she has
another one in the publishing works!
A bit about Winter Shadows:
A coming of age story following Claire, a young lady struggling to find her place in the world after losing her mother to cancer. After a corrupt American government declares a pandemic and forces residents into quarantine encampments, Claire and her father, along with other members of their Church and community, go into hiding in a cave system in rural West Virginia. While coping with the losses of her mother, home, friends, sense of safety and normalcy, Claire begins to pick up the pieces of her past, finding a new normal despite the darkness surrounding her.
While adjusting to a new environment, and the group of people she finds herself surrounded by, Claire is faced with several important decisions that will influence the path her life will take. Who can she trust? Who should she love? How can she survive? Forced to choose between Ethan's steadfast, mature love and the love of mysterious and dangerous Colin who appears. Claire learns the difference between infatuation and love. She becomes self-reliant and strong. Despite her newfound confidence, and the isolation in which she resides, evil is able to find her. While fighting against it, she reestablishes her faith in God and opens her heart to the possibility of love.
