Publisher's Summary

Zoe and Alf make each other promises before parting for separate colleges. Can they keep those promises?

Zoe is forced into a world she doesn’t understand, and a college far from home and her beloved family. Alf meets Sarah at school, but is forced to honor his promise to Zoe and keeps Sarah at bay, even though he’s attracted to her. Lucas Wright, the perfect gentleman, paves the way for Zoe at college, and while she feels something for Lucas, she holds the space in her heart for Alf.

Will Zoe and Alf end up together? Or will Sarah and Lucas come to mean more to them than either of them can resist?

Zoe's Story

This is Zoe's story and what a beautiful one it has turned out to be!
Ever since I first read about her when she was a small child I wondered what would happen in her life and now I know.
Honestly, the more I read/listen to these tales, the more I feel that I am part of these families and each one is like getting a newsy letter bringing us up to date. This is the power of Barbara Goss' writing.
This particular story had me laughing at the antics and then sobbing like a baby too. The characters are very likeable and the happily ever after was totally desirable and most welcome.
I really liked Leon Nixon's narration. He has a great voice and knows how to use it. He and Barbara have talents that compliment each other.
I listened to a free audiobook supplied by the author and this is my voluntary and unbiased review.

Love comes even when you don't know who you are

Zoe has been raised in a world where she is different. Because of this, she makes plans for her life according to the people who have surrounded and loved her. But when she is introduced to the "other side' of her heritage, life gets confusing and complicated. Zoe has made promises that she thought she could keep, but now that she has experienced her full life, she is no longer sure.

Barb ends the Shadow Series with a courageous book about a young bi-racial woman living with her adoptive white family and learns what life and love were like in 19th century America. Leon does a wonderful job telling Zoe's story. I hope he will perform more of Barb's books.

Sweet historical romance.

Zoe and Alf are all grown up in this book. From previous books, I was expecting them to get togther because of how close they were but I understand why they did not end up with each other in this story, it was to be expected.

I would recommend it to those who love sweet historical romance.

Promises Made..


This book centers around the female lead, Zoe and a promise that she made.

College life isn't so easy and she has a decisont to make.

This interesting and engaging read was filled with promises.

Leon Nixon did well with the narration.

Great Read

Shadow of Faith by Barbara Gods was a great read. This is booo seven in The Shadow Series. Zoe and Alf promised each other that they will always love each other and will be together even though they are going to separate schools. That is until Alf meets Sarah and Zoe meets Lucas. This was a great read.

Zoe’s Story

Such a touching and emotional story. The perfect final chapter in a fantastic series.

Zoe is all grown up and ready to head off to college, but things may not work out like she had hoped. Segregation is in full force and that impacts where Zoe can go.

Alf has always had feelings for Zoe, but things need to be put on hold, as he and Zoe are not allowed to go to the same college.

Things get complicated when they both make new friends while away from each other. They need to search their feelings and decide what is truly in their hearts.

Sweet story

Post Civil War era, Zoe is half black and half white but was raised by a white family who loved her as if she was their own. Alf lost his parents and was raised by the same family Zoe was being raised by, however as Alf became older, they decided to find another family to raise him. Yet, Zoe and Alf remained close friends and just before they both left to college they claimed their love for each other. Yet, when they both met different people, they realized their love for one other was more in the brother/sister type of love and open their hearts to their new loves. A delightful and sweet story, one you will truly enjoy.
