Book Review- Shadow of Time by Jen Minkman

Shadow of Time
Available at Amazon 
All Hannah needs is a nice and quiet vacation after her first year of teaching French at a high school. She joins her brother Ben for the summer in their mom’s log cabin in Arizona. There, she meets Josh again, Ben’s childhood friend from the Navajo reservation. The little boy from the rez has grown up fast, and Hannah can’t help but feeling more for him than just friendship. 

But fate apparently has something else in store for her. And it’s not peace and quiet. Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. They seem to come closer – and why is Josh always present in her dreams? 

Sometimes, the past has a way of catching up with you

Book Review- Shadow of Time 
by Jen Minkman

This book starts out a little too slow as we don’t really get to Hannah’s dreams until almost the fifth chapter of the book. However once we get to that point the story starts to pick up and the characters are fleshed out. The book’s very detailed information about the Navajo or the Diné as they call themselves is very interesting and if the reader keeps reading they will enjoy the journey.
Hannah’s and Josh’s trip to find the past and thwart the skinwalkers makes for interesting and captivating reading as the writer shows great attention to detail and research into the Navajo. The sweet unfolding romance of Josh and Hannah is an enjoyable part of this book as is the love that Ben Hannah’s brother has for his sister and his friend Josh.
I loved the ending of this book and I think any other reader will too.
