Shadows Don’t Hurt

The beauty of books is that they have the ability to take us out of the immediate eye of our own storms and  into a different space, a different place, a different time. They let us into someone else’s story and in the end (where the story was well told) we’ll have rested enough to take on the battle before us and what’t more, we’ll have the answer(s) we need to be able to overcome. This is what Shadow’s Don’t Hurt does.

It would be difficult for me to tell you any more without revealing the plot but there were some truly poignant scenes; the treatment that the busboy (waiter) at Mama Maria’s receives from Becky and her friends on their night out. Becky breaking down at the petrol station in the wake of the storm.  DJ’s response when she reached out to him for help.

It’s a simple book, an easy read whose simplicity belies it’s strength and i’d recommend it to anyone to whom life has thrown a curve-ball for which they find themselves terribly unprepared.
