The Shadow

The Shadow by Sloan Blecher - Literary Fiction

‘That shadow will burden our children for all time. They’ll remember this night for the rest of their lives.’

Few farming communities thrive. Most simply endure, sourcing sustenance from a strong family and community ethos that dominates their lives. When Jack and Liz Campbell achieve their land ownership dream, the outlook for their challenging rural life is primed to improve. However, after a new family, the Duncans, arrive in the valley, the Campbells’ lives are forever derailed, and both families are exposed to the trauma of psychological violence and family breakdown. The two families splinter in unpredictable ways, and hard men cast shadows that others struggle to escape. Few make it back to daylight; however, redemption awaits those who do.
