My thoughts on IN THE SHADOW of STRANGERS by Wendy Reakes
What did I like about this novel? It was a comfortably readable, intriguing story that follows the culinary career of, Katherine Killa, an ambitious woman from a very modest background. What Katherine brings to her ever-evolving occupation is a consuming work ethic and a dedication to perfection in her restaurants. What she doesn’t know is that an act of bravery early in her life in saving a girl from rape will result in her getting a secret mentor, a secret unrequited lover, and an unknown evil enemy. The title provides the theme of IN THE SHADOW of STRANGERS and the writer, Wendy Reakes, provides a novel well worth reading.
