Through the Shadows
As San Francisco rises from the ashes, an age-old battle looms between corruption and the promise of new beginnings. The devastating earthquake is just two years past, but the city of San Francisco is still trying to recover. Destruction of this magnitude is not so easy to overcome-and neither are the past regrets shadowing Elizabeth King’s hopeful future. Hoping to right her wrongs, Elizabeth dedicates herself to helping girls rescued from slavery in Chinatown brothels, even if it means putting her own life at risk to sneak through the gloomy alleys and rooftops where dangers lurk.
My thoughts: While I have enjoyed all the books in this series, I think that this one may be my favorite now! I loved the story of Elizabeth, the youngest of the King clan. After a disastrous end to her career as a concert pianist, she turns to working for a mission to atone for her sins. I found the historical aspect of this story fascinating, and I loved the theme of the book: God's grace and our acceptance of it. The story also brings back the characters of the previous stories, which is enjoyable.
This book would work well as a stand alone story as well.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
