Long Shadows

Long Shadows

Old sins cast long shadows

Mona Vickers is forging a new life, building a safe and loving home for her girls far away from the hatred and contempt they experienced after their father’s arrest.  She’ll do whatever it takes to make it work – even teaching a class that hits too close to home.

Roy Strough, director of the Unity Plenkiss Community Center, wants to help the hardworking mother who’s captured his heart, but he’s already offended her pride once and won’t do that again.

Mona’s growing faith is put to the test when one of her students is caught up in a trafficking scheme, but the biggest challenge comes from the shadows of their past. A vengeance-bent stalker forces them into hiding, compelling Mona to decide who she can trust with their secrets – a man who loves her and an all-powerful God.

About the Author
Cathe Swanson

After 40 years of wandering (but always in lovely places and not in a desert), Cathe Swanson has recently returned to her childhood home and family in Minnesota.

In the summer, she and her husband enjoy spending time with their grandchildren and being outdoors, gardening, hiking, birdwatching, and kayaking. The long winters are perfect for playing games, reading, and indoor hobbies. Cathe's been a quilter and teacher of quiltmaking for over 25 years and enjoys just about any kind of creative work, especially those involving fiber or paper.

Everything inspires new books! A lifelong love of quilting, Cathe's Swedish heritage and an interest in genealogy led to The Glory Quilts series. The Hope Again series is inspired by her life in the Midwest and experiences with the elderly, the military, and inner-city ministry. As a child of the 60's, she's having fun writing about hippies and the Jesus People movement in the Serenity Hill series.

Cathe writes books with creative plots and engaging characters of all ages, to glorify God and entertain and bless readers. Her heartwarming stories will make you laugh and make you cry--and then make you laugh again.
