    The Shadow Land

    Set in modern Bulgaria, a young American women visiting Sophia, who while assisting an elderly couple into a taxicab, mistakenly takes a bag containing an urn of human ashes. This sets off a cross country search for the family. This journey will unearth the dark secrets of the brutal horrors of Bulgaria's communist past. Lovely writing.

    Slow Start But Stick With It. Its Worth It!

    I received this book through Netgalley and I’m glad I did. It is a slow start but the second half moves full throttle. I enjoyed this book. It is a mystery with history of Bulgaria. I found learning about Bulgaria very interesting. The first half of the book is about an American teacher, Alexandra, accidentally keeping a family’s urn of ashes. It is the journey of Alexandra and a taxi driver, Bobby, to locate the rightful owners. They go to the police station, a monastery, family relatives and other dwellings. The first half moves slowly but the pieces come together. Seeds of suspense are dropped at various locations. The second half of the book is more about the person in the urn, a musician, and his history. There is much information about labor camps in Bulgaria from 1944 – 1984. Once you get to the halfway point, the book is hard to put down. Stick with it – it’s worth it.
