Library Journal Review

In this follow-up to Snow and Wind, Miller returns to Depression-era King of Prussia, PA. Otto Mueller wants Isabel "Dizzy Izzy" McCaslin to marry him, but the return of Bible salesman Benny Baxter, who enraptured Izzy's heart once before, works against him. Isabel is torn between a true love of God and the fanaticism Benny ingrained in her on his last visit. Erick Mueller is busy planning his wedding to his beloved Mary when a ghost from her past steps in and destroys his future happiness. And a long-forgotten secret is uncovered that could destroy the McCaslin family unless Isabel's detestable brother Peter finds a way to hide it. Although Shade ends with several questions still unanswered (will there be other books down the road?), fans of the previous novels will want to find out what has happened here.
