Lily is thrust into the harsh realities of the adult world with an unexpected pregnancy while still in high school. When tragedy strikes and Lily’s daughter dies, her mother’s tentative grasp on reality disappears. Alone with nowhere else to turn, she escapes to North Carolina and the only place that has ever felt like home.
What follows, however, will astonish and surprise readers as much as it does Lily, herself—for the desperate young women discovers she possesses a gift as amazing as it is dangerous. Called “the sight” by her Aunt Callie, Lily begins suffering terrible dreams and unexplained visions which lead her to a decades-old mystery surrounding the events which drove her own mother insane: the explosion which claimed the life of her father.
As Lily embraces her rare gift and unravels the mystery surrounding her father’s death, she walks deeper into a dangerous web of deceit, all the while rediscovering childhood friendships and possibly rekindling a long-lost love.
“Sharon Webb has given readers a fantastic rollercoaster of a ride with Talking to Shadows,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “All the compassion of Nicholas Sparks with the danger of Stephen King lurking beneath the surface, readers will be clamoring for more once they’ve turned the final page.”
Sharon B. Webb began her writing career at the age of eleven, when she won her first author’s award for an original work of poetry. Her articles have regularly appeared in local magazines and periodicals. “Talking to Shadows” was inspired by childhood memories and stories of eccentric ancestors who were gifted with “the sight.” A wife, mother and grandmother, she lives in North Carolina and divides her time between the mountains and the coast.
