Author Ursula Trommeshauser carefully pens an enthralling and gripping book that will take readers on the ominous life of a woman who is struggling to accept her past and is still learning the value of acceptance and moving on in Shadows from the Past.

Excerpts from Shadows from the Past:

“The snow was falling and blowing through the air of the early January morning when the alarm clock rang with its usual clamor. She rolled over and looked at the clock; it was 5:30 a.m. She switched off the alarm and then began to think of preparing for another seemingly endless day of work. Minutes earlier, she had been dreaming of a time that existed long ago.”

Gisela Leonhard found it difficult to force her mind into the present and get her senses into reality. Her dream held her captive, a dream from the past that seemed so real, but which was only a memory of yesterday, a memory of war and political dictatorship. In her dream, the sounds of sirens in the night gave warning to hurry immediately for shelter. The nightmarish feeling continued for her now even though she knew she would get up and start dressing for the day. She saw herself in her mind again as a young girl trapped by an air raid while going home from school. These horrendous and frightening images have been haunting Gisela all her life. She needs to face it now or else, her life will be at stake. Will she succeed against her nightmares?

Trommeshauser’s amazing work will definitely excite and entertain readers as Shadows from the Past teases their imagination, challenges their intellect and appeals to their emotions. This volume will surely take them on an exciting and thrilling roller coaster ride as the book comes to its gripping end.
