I'm very pleased to announce that my 2nd book in the Intertwined Souls Series, “Where Shadows Linger” is now available to purchase. The ebook version is now available, the print version will be available soon.
Historical Lesbian Romance In Post War Australia
Where Shadows Linger follows the ever popular first book in the Intertwined Souls Series, In the Blood of the Greeks. Having survived Nazi-occupied Greece and its liberation, Eva Muller and Zoe Lambros are still very much in love, wanting nothing more than to fulfill their dreams and hopes for the future.
Immigrating to Sydney, Australia, Eva and Zoe find themselves making new friends and forging a new life together. Eva struggles with the ramifications of her tortured past whilst Zoe sees a life long dream coming true. They try to fit into a society marred by prejudice and the machinations of old enemies plunging them into mortal danger.
Will the unique connection between Eva and Zoe be destroyed?
Will they lose their new-found friends?
Or will Eva and Zoe's love prove strong enough to overcome the shadows of the past that continue to linger in their lives?
The view of Sydney Harbour from the ship is magnificent. And it's full of promise… We follow Eva and Zoe from war-torn Europe all the way to Australia, the land of plenty, where they hope to find a fresh start. Together and in love, they are ready to face the challenges that await them. They'll meet new friends and they'll grow stronger, but the shadows of their past have managed to track them down to the other side of the Earth. Old enemies and fears resurface and reopen old wounds that were never fully healed… Thus the journey continues.
Where Shadows Linger is a novel about courage, about hope, about love. The different plot threads are delicately woven and flow like a symphony, taking the reader along at a steady, smooth pace. This is also a brilliant study on characterization. Eva and Zoe, already solid characters in In the Blood of the Greeks,are here depicted so vividly that they are perceived as real. We get to explore the many different shades of their personalities and the strength of the loving bond they share, and it's such a beautiful thing to watch… There are quite a few new characters as well, just as clearly and firmly built, who add color and interesting developments to this fantastic story.
Once again, Mary D. Brooks proves that she masters the art of writing emotion. There are powerfully intense, mind-blowing scenes that will literally take your breath away; there are warm, tender times that will softly touch your soul; there are light moments where Ms. Brooks' unique sense of humor shines brightly. Her unique narrative voice never wavers, her elegant writing style is flawless, and her talent for writing smart, flowing dialogue is extraordinary.
I thought I could never get enough of Eva and Zoe when I finished In the Blood of the Greeks, and so I was ecstatic when I got my copy of Where Shadows Linger. Now I'm about to burst with excitement because the third book in the series, Hidden Truths, is almost ready to be published. Don't give it another thought and embark on this breath-taking journey. I can guarantee it will be the literary ride of your life. – Rosa Alonso (Amazon.com)
