The first full-length novel in sixteen years by the creator of the fabulous Sugar Creek Gang series! Joe Cardinal, 27-year-old bachelor and columnist during the darkening pre-World War II days, finds two women deeply involved in his life—the girl he loves and his secretary, who have both fallen in love with him. But ambitions and romance are suspended when Cardinal’s draft deferment is dropped, and he sets off to war, to return a different man. East of the Shadows is a story of life—a story of the struggle to overcome the obstacles, to pass through the shadow of the valleys in our lives, and to come back alive, having conquered. It’s a story of true love that trusts and forgives, that has a small cemetery in which to bury all the faults of our friends. And it’s a story of faith, of a man’s struggle to know his Creator, and the difficult road he has to trod before he can. East of the Shadows is a book that will become a part of you as you live it through Joe Cardinal!

Becky Belski: a nice small-town girl with a nice computer research job in Chicago. Sort of. Okay, so she's not always nice, and her "research job"--which entails digging up electronic dirt on people through computer networks--borders on the illegal. So her past is a little murky, what with her mother convicted of killing Becky's stepfather. Still--the case is closed, her mother long dead: How could a high-profile divorce case shake up her humdrum world of sweatsuits and take-out Chinese? A wealthy socialite has shot her husband, and her lawyers have hired Becky to do some computerized snooping. A straightforward assignment, until the digging reveals a link between the victim and Becky's own half-forgotten past. The connection provides Becky with the chance to unearth the real story behind her mother's conviction. The plot is further thickened by (1) Michael, cute-but-klutzy lawyer for the defense, and (2) Bill, Becky's long-lost stepbrother. When Becky finds herself in the odd position of being attracted to Bill, it brings a whole new meaning to the term "family affair." Trying to sort everything out leads Becky to believe that there are some unhappy families that are unhappy in their own truly remarkable ways.

Ivy has always found out all she needs to know by lurking in the shadows (some might call it "eavesdropping"). But as things at home become more complicated, she learns to step into the light and not only listen but speak up, in Ivy in the Shadows by Chris Woodworth.
