Shadow of Time by Jen Minkman

Shadow of Time by Jen Minkman

Summary: All Hannah needs is a nice and quiet vacation after her first year of teaching French at a high school. She joins her brother Ben for the summer in their mom’s log cabin in Arizona. There, she meets Josh again, Ben’s childhood friend from the Navajo reservation. The little boy from the rez has grown up fast, and Hannah can’t help but feeling more for him than just friendship. 

But fate apparently has something else in store for her. And it’s not peace and quiet. Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. They seem to come closer – and why is Josh always present in her dreams? 

Sometimes, the past has a way of catching up with you.

Excerpts from Reviews (Obtained from "Her characters are quite believable and quite likable as well."

"I loved how Ms. Minkman told her story......smooth and fluent." - Beth C.

"The thing I appreciated the most was the originality of the plot." - Bookings with Inklings

"Kudos [...] for writing a unique story with parts that make all you romantics out there (I myself am not much of a romantic) go awwwww and parts that make us paranormal junkies go oujea!" - Bookings with Inklings

"I am very impressed with the amount of research and the author's ability to tell a story that spans centuries. A very enjoyable read." - Xylia B.

"Something unique and original, and about ten times as enjoyable as the generic paranormal romance books. Shadow of Time is one of these unique books with an original concept that tries something completely different, and, in this case, succeeds." - Manjanka V.

"An absolute pleasure to read, this book had me flying through the pages to see what the conclusion to this fantastic story would be. A truly original concept and storyline has me eager to see what Jen will release next." - Sarah

About the Author: Jen Minkman (1978) was born in Holland, in the town of Alphen aan den Rijn. When she was 19, she moved between The Hague, Salzburg (Austria), Brussels (Belgium) and Cambridge (UK) to complete her studies in intercultural communication. She is currently a teacher of English, career counsellor and teenage coach at a secondary school in Voorburg, Holland. She tries to read at least 100 books a year (and write a few, too!). She is a published author in her own country, and translates her own books from Dutch into English for self-publication.In her spare time, she plays the piano, the guitar and the violin. For every novel she writes, she creates a soundtrack.

"I have always been drawn to writing. My first book was a sci-fi novel at the age of eight, which I painstakingly typed out on my dad's typewriter and illustrated myself. Nowadays, I stick to poetry, paranormal romance, chicklit and/or fantasy. In my home country, I am the first-ever published writer of paranormal romance, and I will gradually make my books also available in English (seeing I have to re-write and translate the books myself, this will take some time!)."
