My book is a story of people living as shadows of themselves that are inextricably linked to the history and societal pressures of the time.
SAN SIEGO (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
Known as the Age of Disillusionment, the 1960s was a decade filled with extreme transformations and bizarre contrasts.
For the robust post-World War II baby boom generation of flower children and assassins, it was a time bursting with idealism, alienation and rebellion.
Sylvia C. Stowers’ new historical fiction novel, “Shadows of Us” follows a small group of professional whose lives are caught up in the cultural changes of the late 1960s.
“Each of the individuals in the novel are hiding secrets that keep them from personal and professional successes,” Stowers said. “My book is a story of people living as shadows of themselves that are inextricably linked to the history and societal pressures of the time.”
A compelling tale filled with underhanded schemes and deceitfulness, readers will revel with curiosity as they are introduced to a woman who possesses paranormal abilities, a closeted gay baseball player, a banker whose financial dealings are illegal, a powerful district attorney who loves money and a counselor who is the keeper of all secrets.
The first book in an intended trilogy, “Shadows of Us” is a narrative that will not only enlighten, but entertain those interested in the bright lights and riches of a big city.
