Spotlight and GIVEAWAY - Living in the Shadows by Judith Barrow

I am very happy to be showcasing a new author and book at One Book Shy today. Judith Barrows is currently on a blog tour with her newest book, Living in the Shadows. 

TITLE:    Living in the Shadows
AUTHOR:    Judith Barrow
INFO:    Paperback, Fiction, 310 pages
PUBLISHED:   Honno Press, 2015

It's 1969 and Mary Schormann is living quietly in Wales with her ex-POW husband, Peter, and her teenage twins, Richard and Victoria. Her niece, Linda Booth, is a nurse - following in Mary's footsteps - and works in the maternity ward of her local hospital in Lancashire.

At the end of a long night shift, a bullying new father visits the maternity ward and brings back Linda's darkest nightmares, her terror of being locked in. Who is this man, and why does he scare her so?

There are secrets dating back to the war that still haunt the family, and finding out what lies at their root might be the only way Linda can escape their murderous consequences. 


Judith Barrow has lived in Pembrokeshire for thirty years. She is the author of three novels, and has published poetry and short fiction, winning several poetry competitions, as well as writing three children's books and a play performed at the Dylan Thomas Centre. Judith grow up in the Pennines, has degrees in literature and creative writing and makes regular appearances at literary festivals.
