Can the shadows of a tragic past dim the light of the present? Author Gaynor Gabriel explores this question as she exemplifies a poignant tale of hope and survival in her book, "The Long Shadow" (published by AuthorHouse UK). The critically acclaimed novel is all set to receive its fresh marketing campaign following its successful release last 2013.

"The Long Shadow" offers a psychological and emotional dimension of two fictional Jewish families - one French and one English – who are caught in the horrors of the holocaust. Through the two main characters, Sarah and Claude, Jews, and their families, the book reflects not just an individual psychological development but the psychology of a community spanning four generations in diverse cultural spaces. The effects of their tragic experiences are played out very differently and in unexpected ways and places.

A candid depiction of the war's sustaining impact not only to its victims but also to their families and progeny, "The Long Shadow" offers an unforgettable tale that is both an exposition and a plea.

“There were six million Jews murdered during the holocaust,” says Gabriel who has Jewish roots herself, “It is vital that none of us forget this hideously extreme example of man’s inhumanity to man.”

Praise for "The Long Shadow:"

“It becomes hard to put the book down……the narrative becomes truly wrenching. One hopes that Gabriel will keep writing; a remarkable beginning,”

  • Kirkus Reviews

“This is a well-charted tale of how great sorrow can colour lives long after the event.”

  • BlueInk Review

“Introspective and profoundly moving, Gabriel’s realistic portrayal of war’s aftermath will leave an enduring impression.”
