In death she found life

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019
In death she found life.Florence Sterling should be perfectly happy. She’s been given a second chance at life with her beloved husband. But all is not well. She yearns for more children, even though Alex is reluctant. Memories of the day she and her baby were murdered still haunt her. And she can’t shake the feeling she will be separated from Alex again.

As if in confirmation of her premonition, Alex is called on a dangerous mission to enlist America’s aid in WWII. Trying to distract herself, Florence investigates what really happened when her son died. As she searches, she becomes convinced her son is alive, although witnesses say otherwise. And with each clue she discovers, she unwittingly draws closer to her old enemy—the deranged woman who will stop at nothing to destroy her.

When Alex goes missing in action, Florence must reach deeply into her faith as she faces her greatest fears. If Alex is lost to the war, will she allow herself to love another man and fulfill her desire to have a family? Or will she remain alone the rest of her life?

Marcia was born and raised in Argentina during the military regime which ended with the loss of many young lives in the invasion of the Falkland Islands. Amidst the devastating effects of military government and war, reading and writing became a passion which expanded and transported her imagination with the possibility of a brighter future.
At the age of eighteen, she moved to the United States, where she studied English and started her own family. She soon discovered that the love she has for her husband and children would naturally unfold towards her European roots, leading her to become a genealogist and family historian. A decade of searching, compiling, and learning the stories of thousands of people has instilled in her a profound gratitude for the strong ties that can be achieved in families through personal sacrifice.
So it is that through fiction, Shadows of Time duology (Awaken, Shadows of a Forgotten Past and Alive, Shadows of a Living Past) explores and exposes the characteristics of true love and loyalty in times of fear, war, and finally, death. But perhaps the most captivating element in the story is the battle within the souls of the main characters as they search to know who they really are and how they are connected.

Snippet:
“Florence, since the first day I saw you at Oak’s
Place, my life has completely changed. Everything that I believed and accepted
as true has been uprooted by your presence.” Alex’s countenance revealed
another layer of himself, a depth of feeling I hadn’t seen before. 
 
“There are
many things I don’t understand, things that hurt so deep that I almost
convinced myself I was insane.” Alex arose and extended his hand to bring me to
my feet. Holding both of my hands in his, his gaze found mine. 
 
“I wanted to
stay away from you, but I couldn’t. I didn’t want to hurt you, but I did. Today
when you said that you’d leave and never come back if I asked you to, I
realized that I could never ask that of you. Even though it would be better for
you, I’m much too selfish. I’d die if I did.”
