Through the Shadows (Golden Gat Chronicles #3) by Karen Barnett -- Book Tour Review + 5 Book Giveaway
About the Book
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.
Putting her life on the line for a worthy cause is admirable. But opening her heart is even more terrifying. So when Elizabeth meets attorney Charles McKinley---a man who dreams of reforming San Francisco's crooked politics---Elizabeth begins to doubt: Can she maintain her pretense and hide her past? Or will her secret jeopardize both their futures?

About the Author
Karen Barnett is the author of “Beyond the Ashes,” “Out of the Ruins,” and “Mistaken.” Named the 2013 Writer of Promise by Oregon Christian Writers, Karen lives in Albany, Oregon, with her husband and two kids. When she’s not writing novels, she loves speaking at women’s events, libraries, and book clubs..
As my first book from Karen Barnet, I was thoroughly impressed with Through the Shadows. Karen has a way of drawing her readers into her stories and falling in love with her characters from page one. I was drawn in and loved how Elizabeth King throws herself into the work of the mission of saving young girls from brothels in Chinatown. I also enjoyed how Elizabeth and Charles McKinley keep bumping into each other and how a romance forms. Although the third book in a series, this can be read as a standalone. I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy historical, romance novels.
