Product Description

How far would you go for love?

In a rambling house in a small Australian beach town, Elena Jameson is recovering from her recent divorce. To her delight, she is given the opportunity to foster a little boy, Daniel, whose mother is dead and whose violent father is in rehab. As Elena and Daniel explore the beautiful bay and wild bushland, they form a profound bond that will change their lives forever.

Then Daniel’s father discovers his whereabouts and begins a campaign of terror – not to get his son back, but to prevent Elena giving Daniel a new life.

As the violence escalates, Elena finds that she’s willing to do whatever it takes to protect Daniel from the brutality of his past and an uncertain future. Sometimes the only way to get what you want is to pay the price in blood.

A gothic tale of love and loss, bravery and hope.

One of the things I love about this thriller/drama is its way of bringing out light and dark, this "contrast" that is cleverly shaped by its characters and their unique stories, allowing the reader to easily visualise a world that exists both in dream and reality. You can't help but emotionally connect with the determination of the characters, either fueled by love or fear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and intense! Loved it! 15 January 2017
By Brenda Telford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When Elena Jameson was granted the opportunity to foster six year old Tyson, she was thrilled. Her recent divorce had left her fragile – caring for this little boy would be therapy for them both. Learning that the name Tyson made the boy shudder with apprehension, Elena started calling him Daniel – his second name – which suited them both. Daniel had lost his mother to death and his father was a cruel, vindictive and abusive man, currently locked away. Elena chose not to think about the future and what would happen when he was released…

Living a quiet and secluded life in the small bay not far from Melbourne in Victoria, just Daniel, Rafi (their little dog) and Elena, she knew this was the life she wanted. Daniel was a different child, and Elena loved him in the devoted manner of any mother anywhere. Daniel was doing well at school – they explored the beautiful surrounding bush in their leisure time; and soccer brought Daniel joy. But with a terrifying suddenness, everything changed. Violence erupted around Elena and Daniel – the danger was crippling. What would Elena do? She knew she needed to do everything in her power to keep her son safe; but what…?

The Bay of Shadows is the debut novel by Aussie author Samantha Wood and in my opinion it’s exceptional! A gripping and intense plot with a fast pace and riveting emotions – The Bay of Shadows has everything I love in a psychological thriller (even a touch of the Dreamtime). I have no hesitation in recommending this novel highly, and will be eagerly watching for this author’s next book :) I also love the cover!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book you simply have to read, it is sooo worth your time and money!!!!!!!! 7 February 2017
By Aisha-Kimberly Hashmi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Okay. I have to say this riveting, heat pounding novel had me on the edge of my seat. I feel the first reviewer gave away so much of the plot if you want to know that much go read her post. I am only going to tell you my sister went through something similar to this, yet she, her daughter and sister in law were all murdered. I felt that gripping pain and all those emotions right there in my face again reading this story, in a good way. I have to say this was an amazing book, I was honored to have it gifted to me by the author. It is so healing to those like me who have lived through a crime of this nature. Thanks again for this and it truly was just a breathtaking story line, the world is so well described, the depth and complexity of the characters and the emotions just truly hit the spot perfectly. I read it, I loved it, I reviewed it, YOUR TURN

For me it was ok. It seem to take awhile before it got good enough to pull me in and then it was over. I wasn't really impressed.
