Hidden Shadow

Hidden Shadow is an enthralling novel that chronicles the life of Sophie Thomas, a young woman with dual careers as a psychologist and interior designer. Amidst significant life upheavals, including newfound singledom, a lost job opportunity, and an inherited property, Sophie is tormented by a recurring, vivid nightmare that begins to seep into her waking life through a series of eerie encounters. As the story unfolds, readers are kept on the edge of their seats, captivated by Sophie’s interactions with enigmatic new acquaintances and her immersion in ventures that continually blur the lines between reality and the supernatural.
