Shadow Box tells the story of Henry DeTamble, an American expatriate artist who, in search of a new life, moves to London in the early 1930s.

Henry is immediately smitten with the city and its vibrant culture, but he is also haunted by the memory of his wife and young daughter who died in a tragic accident a few years before.

As Henry begins to make connections in the city, he discovers that the old ways of life are fading away. He finds himself at odds with the government and the fascists who are gaining power, but he also finds new friends in the resistance movement.

As the war draws closer, Henry must decide whether to stay in London and fight, or return to America and risk never seeing his family again.

Shadow Box is an atmospheric and poignant story of love, loss, and courage.; 8vo; 380 pages.
