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!
