The Shadow Series -- Four Books. One Epic Love Story.

When Shadows Fall

As the Civil War rages, Rebekah fights to keep her world intact. But loss and sorrow has seeped into her heart and mind. She sets her sights on Oregon, praying this new Eden will allow her a place of peace and a place to put her life, and that of her son's, back together again. She travels to Independence, Missouri ready to take the train west, but is denied the opportunity to join the train because she is woman alone.

Matthew battles his way through one fight after another, all the while thinking of Rebekah. The woman who holds his heart. He longs to help her west, but fears his biggest battle lies ahead of him. Will Rebekah open up her heart to him and allow him to be the one to hold her When the Shadows Fall?

Shadowed Dreams
Matthew braved the war and near death with one thought in mind… Rebekah. He won her hand in marriage, and now has a few short months to make her see how much he loves her. How much he needs her. Given the wall she's put up between them, he prays he'll have enough time.

After fleeing the war, Rebekah is determined to go west to Oregon, only to be turned down when she tries to join the train. Matthew's proposal of marriage, in name only to help her west, becomes the miracle she needs. Loving him as she does, she dreads the idea of letting him go once they reach Oregon, but how can she ask him to stay with her, to love her? How could he love her once he's found out her secret? She must guard her heart and his.

To Catch A Shadow
Matthew braved the war and the trail to be with her, and has finally uncovered Rebekah's secret and won her heart. Now, Anthony Friedmont, Caroline's husband, has returned and taken his wife and Rebekah has gone out to find her. Putting them both in Danger. Matthew and his cousin, Clay, track the women to a camp and find several dead men, but no women. And no Anthony among the dead. Following the tracks and clues, Matthew learns that Rebekah and Caroline are now captives of Chief Gray Eagle of the Sioux, and Anthony is back at Fort Laramie. For he and Rebekah to have a future, Matthew will have to win the women's freedom from the Chief. But first, he'll have to face Anthony and hopefully, lay Rebekah's past to rest.

 This Shadowed Land

Together again, Matthew and Rebekah continue their journey west. But Fisted Hand is determined to have Rebekah for his own. First, he must take Matthew out of the equation. Matthew is forced to face Fisted Hand in hand to hand combat and both men end up badly wounded in the fight. Thomas finds them and brings them back to the train, but only after Matthew exacts Thomas's promise that he'll care for Rebekah should he die.

When Matthew returns to camp, wounded and covered in blood, Rebekah fears the worst. She is heartened to learn he's alive, but knows even if the bleeding is stopped, infection may still take his life. She doesn't want to go to Oregon without the man she loves. She prays, now that Oregon is closer than before, God won't take Matthew away from her.
