Many times in our lives we try to make sense of why God does the things he does. We ask him to reveal his plans to us, but he is silent, nowhere to be found. Set in the 1920's, In the Shadows of Love is a faith-based story centered around Romans 8:28: "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (KJV). It's the story of how God's invisible hand never stops working, always shaping history for the good of his children, even when it doesn't seem possible. Alina Foster lives a life of misery and despair from the moment she was brought into the world. Her mother died giving birth to her. Her father is hostile toward her, blaming her for his wife's death. With no hopes of a brighter future, Alina trades one miserable life for another, enduring a long hard-filled life on the crime-ridden streets of Kirkville, a rural Midwestern town. After years of searching for purpose and meaning to her existence, God brings an extraordinary little gift into her life that changes the course of her destiny forever.
