Out of the Shadows by Sigmund Brouwer

Most people call Out of the Shadows a mystery, and in a sense it is. But it is more a human struggles novel than mystery.
Nick Barrett was exiled from Charleston nearly ten years earlier after annulling his marriage to his girlfriend, which was forced by his dominant former mother-in-law. Now he's back because of a letter he received from the local sheriff containing information about his mother, who left him as a young boy. Now the only people he can trust are the sheriff's daughter and two furniture store owners.
The characters are believable and comedic at the same time. None of the characters are perfect.
The plot is original and holds the reader's attention all the way through. There aren't really any major plot problems I can think of.
Sigmund Brouwer is one of the most entertaining authors on the market, especially in this kind of book: a first person perspective plot with good, believable characters.
4 stars
