THE SHADOWS WE HIDE - THE SEQUEL


The Shadows We Hide, the sequel to The Life We Bury is on store shelves now and I'm proud of how it is being received. The Minneapolis TV station KARE 11 chose it for their January Book Club pick and we did a live Facebook discussion. KARE 11 was kind enough to put together a little clip - eleven things to know about yours truly - attached below, if you want to check it out.

Nothing More Dangerous by Allen Eskens
"The best book I read in 2019. Allen Eskens’s writing is powerful - I truly felt like I was in this time period with the characters, experiencing the anxiety they were feeling with every twist and turn. I’ve read several of his books and have enjoyed " Read more of this review »

"5 spectacular stars

I’ve saved this review as I really don’t know how to do this book justice. I loved it, definitely in my top three reads of the year. I first read Alan Esken’s book “The Life We Bury” in December 2018 and I rated it “read this book " Read more of this review »

Nothing More Dangerous by Allen Eskens
""But memories aren’t like photographs; they can’t halt the passing of time. Instead, they lay like steps along a path, each one determined by the step that came before and colored by the steps to follow.""

“no one can change the sound of an echo.”
Allen Eskens, The Life We Bury

“What if I was wrong? What if there was no other side. What if, in all the eons of eternity, this was the one and only time that I would be alive. How would I live my life if that were the case?”
Allen Eskens, The Life We Bury

“We are surrounded every day by the wonders of life, wonders beyond comprehension that we simply take for granted. I decided that day that I would live my life—not simply exist. If I died and discovered heaven on the other side, well, that'd be just fine and dandy. But if I didn't live my life as if I was already in heaven, and I died and found only nothingness, well…I would have wasted my life. I would have wasted my one chance in all of history to be alive.” Carl”
