Publisher's Summary

"From the opening pages, Brouwer spins a riveting tale of intrigue and deceit set against the contemporary backdrop of wealthy Charleston. Nicholas Barrett is abandoned by the women he loves the most: first by his mother, who deserts him as a child, and later by his wife of only four days. Crippled in an accident that costs him everything he holds dear, Nick returns from global wanderings years later determined to discover the shattering truth about his past and to extract revenge…. Brouwer's vivid imagery is fresh and engaging…. He sprinkles his story with just enough startling revelations to propel the [listener] on to the next page without giving too much away…the unexpected plot twists and a strong finish will please his fans, who will find it difficult to put this novel down." (Publishers Weekly)

Story was probably good....

I have never written a review. But, the narration was so bad that I didn't finish.

Great story... Horrible narration.

What did you love best about Out of the Shadows?

The way the story unfolded in complex fashion weaving together the past and the present.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Out of the Shadows?

The discovery of the truth about Claire.

What didn’t you like about Stephen Woodfin’s performance?

He read with great hesitation, constantly leaving a sentence or phrase unfinished and hanging... Dropping in the last word like a verbal orphan.
