The Shadows Come by Melinda Inman

48738712. sy475


Germany threatens all of Europe. Millions have died. President Woodrow Wilson makes the declaration that the United States must enter the Great War to rescue our allies. Congress approves. Our story begins.
In America’s heartland, everyone hunkers down to provide food for the world and resources for the war effort. A draft is necessary, and all young men must register. One by one, these are called to war. With this threat looming,
Prentis and Avery raise the necessary horsepower, cultivate the needed crops, and contribute their labors to the Red Cross. But crises at home, an insidious busybody, and one after another called up to fight in Europe bring the greatest dangers they’ve ever faced together.
Then there’s the influenza pandemic. Will they survive the war abroad and the war being waged at home, threatening their love and their lives? Will their loved ones make it home again?


I'm sorry to post my review so late for this book.
When I seen that Inman had another book out I was really excited! I loved every minute of it.
Inman is a good storyteller and I can get "lost" in her writing easily. I love how she takes us back to the past and shows us that life isn't that different than from today. Well, maybe just a bit harder because they didn't have the technology that we do now.
Life, love, and faith are woven in this beautiful story as they face their hardships and in my opinion it makes their faith grow stronger as each storm shows up.
God is an essential part of our lives and having Him in it tends to make things go a little easier to my way of thinking. I'm so glad He's in mine and my families. I don't know where we'd be without him.
I loved each of the characters and the supporting characters that were in the story. The plot was very real to me and I enjoyed it that much more. I could actually picture myself in the setting of the story.
The cover and the author of this book is what made me want to read it. I didn't even need to see the blurb to know that I wanted to read the book. I read the first book in this series so I sort of knew what to expect from this author.  She didn't disappoint! I enjoyed every minute of the book and was sad to see it end.
I really recommend this story. It's a great read and one you won't want to put down!
My thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a complimentary of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review.


Raised on the Oklahoma plains in a storytelling family, Melinda now spins tales from her writer's cave in the Midwest. Her faith-filled fiction illustrates our human story, wrestling with our brokenness and the
