As she writes this journal, it doesn’t really bring her peace or comfort; it just reminds her of all she’s been through and witnessed. She wonders why she hears sounds that shouldn’t be there, when she is a woman with no imagination. Why is she haunted by nightmares; terrorised in the cold, dark hours before dawn by hideous things only a mad imagination could create; startled by shadows thrown across a patch of grass in the sunlight; or watching hideous, little demonic shapes scuttling away like rats in the alley? Readers are about to find out as author Dominique Mayfair weaves science, religion, imagination, and more into one engrossing read in Shadows and Demons.
In this story, the author introduces readers to Gabrielle Branson, who narrates her own story of facing Shadows and Demons. Gabrielle, an only child, is now thirty-two. Her father teaches at the local college. Her upbringing is a blend of her father’s non-belief and her mother’s simple but blind faith. She does very well in school and enjoys travelling with her father. It’s in one of their journeys that the other side of her personality is developed. Like her father, she has lost her faith early and she has learned to question everything she is taught in school or church. She has pursued further studies and meets Mia. Together, they have lived for four years and are truly happy. But fate has other plans.
This, however, is just the beginning of a long and different journey for Gabrielle. She has to go through life with more surprising twists and unexpected turns that come in the form of religion, beliefs, passion, memories, science, sociology, and more. As the pages turn, so will the readers’ minds, hearts, and imagination.
