..Joe had looked him in the eye and asked a simple question that had cleared everything up for him. It was actually a very simple question. He’d asked, “Do you believe that God is sovereign and knows what is best for His children?”
Jordan had been quick to answer yes and Joe had in his quiet way asked, “Then why do you wonder if you could have changed what was already God’s will? If God hadn’t wanted Lance to come home, to be with Him, then Lance would still be here with us, but you’ve just admitted to me that God knows what is best, so don’t blame yourself, understand that your best friend is in a much better place…
This excerpt is just one of the best lines I’ve ever read in this book and maybe in all the books I’ve read. It left me pondering and evaluating my own decisions in life and just how much my faith is in God.

Shadows from the Past is a story of a CIA agent Aurora who was once a devoted-believer but when her brother and FBI agent Lance died, she losses everything, even herself and her own faith. She turns away from God, from her fiancé Jordan and from her friends.
This book is all about finding yourself back to God and accepting the past and moving on. This is also a good book for those who had lose a loved one, for it definitely describes the experience and gives comfort and acceptance to those who were left.
I salute Miss Dawn for writing a novel which is based on faith. A well-written and inspiring read, and more importantly a book for the soul. :)
This is a wonderful read, a fusion of faith, romance, mystery and a li’l bit of action. You’ll find yourself in the middle of family, friends, couple and personal issues. You’ll learn about forgiving, believing and loving others.
I highly recommend this book, it’s worth of your time.
