    One thought on “Chasing Shadows”

    1. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything I have read by this talented and highly entertaining author and, although a written in a totally different style, this is another total winner for me. The other stories I've read by him were romantic comedies but this is a timeslip story involving the main characters Luke and Amy in the present day and Luc and Aimee in 1314.In both cases, the leading lady has lost her sight in the last few years and they are being escorted along the Camino by the male charact [...]

    2. 5 Words: Hope, history, friendship, travel, romance.When it comes to time slip, I'm usually on the fence. I usually start over thinking it, I get distracted by the theory behind it, I find myself slipping out of the story rather than into different times. But in this case? I was so absorbed in the story itself that I forgot to get distracted.And I loved it.I loved Amy as a character, how she happened to be blind but it didn't define her. She was strong and feisty and a joy to read.The relationsh [...]

    3. This was an interesting book - it combines history and romance well. It has dual timelines, one that takes place in 1314 and one that takes place in 2016. It is about two couples who do a pilgrimage through the Pyrenees along the Camino de Santiago which is the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela.Amy is a woman who was blinded in a tragic accident where she lost all of her family. She goes on a trip following a recommendation from a priest who is her friend and mentor. She hires a guide, [...]

    4. After a terrible accident, Amy is making the most of her life, but it has surprises even she can’t imagine as echoes from the past link with the present.I was slightly apprehensive about reading a change in style from T.A. Williams, especially as I’m not overly keen on timeslip stories, but was so relieved to find that his usual flowing narrative presentation still remains. I always find his writing effortless to read as there’s a confidence and elegance behind it that makes it so pleasura [...]

    5. The Blurb :Amy had it all – money, brains and beauty. And then the accident happened.The Present Day: Left blind and without her family, Amy feels she needs to get away. On a trip along the Camino, she is accompanied by the mysterious and troubled Luke. Having been set up to help Amy by a mutual friend, Luke finds he is also running from his past…1314: A Templar Knight, Luc, is also running. He meets the wife of a former comrade, now blinded in a terrifying attack: Aimee. Taking her under hi [...]

    6. What an astonishing book! You'd never guess at all that's inside, from the book's cover. As beautiful as it is, I feel it doesn't do the book justice. I really never thought I'd enjoy this book nearly as much as I did. This book was wonderfully written, I can't fault any of it. The historical aspects were a good addition, being a huge fan of studying history, this was perfectly suited for me. I'm glad I've read this book, it's one of those books that I feel I could read a couple times more. Some [...]

    7. The story instantly drew me in and grabbed hold, I loved finding out all about Amy and Luke as they travelled along the Camino de Santiago. Both characters are troubled by the past which made their journey even more interesting. It's lovely how Luke and Amy slowly get to know each other and become more comfortable with each other. I really enjoyed the fact that Amy was facing her fears and doing something to move forward with her life. Luc and Aimee also brought so much to the story with danger, [...]

    8. A feel-good story about the healing power of love. Chasing Shadows takes you on an adventure down the pilgrim’s path of Camino de Santiago in both the present day (with Amy and Luke) and in 1314 (with Aimee and Luc).I liked how the author cleverly blended contemporary and historical romance, where we vicariously travel the pilgrim’s path through the eyes and senses of the characters. For hundreds of years pilgrims have traveled this path to shorten their stay in purgatory, find salvation and [...]

    9. What to say? I finished this in the middle of the night and I am writing this "review" this morning. Details now seem hazy. This is when notes would come in handy. When I first downloaded this--at least my recollection is that--I thought this was a time travel book or some kind of past/present doppelgänger kind of story. Well, it is definitely not a time travel story. To an extent, it is a bit of a doppelgänger story. My recollection initially between purchase and reading was that the present [...]

    10. I really enjoyed this book! It was well written and the historical aspects seemed to be thoroughly researched. I have read a couple real life accounts of people walking the Camino De Santiago and was excited when I saw this novel featuring the famous pilgrimage. I think having the background information I had going in helped me get immediately caught up in the story of theses two couples making their own pilgrimage for two very different reasons AND in two different time periods.I wasn’t sure [...]

    11. Interesting double-storyThe author has created a story within a story, covering the same pilgrimage 700 years apart. The idea is engaging and started out strong, but by the end was a little tiresome. Since the 14th century characters are presumed to be the imagination of the current-day characters, there are no real surprises, which is too bad, because a real twist at the end of the ancient story would have enhanced this book considerably. I also found the romances a little too perfect for a goo [...]

    12. An okay storyHaving walked the Camino, this story caught my attention. The parallel story moving back and forth in time was rather simple. Editing was not done closely. The two stories had characters with the same name with spelling variations. There were points where Amy was used in place of Aimee. The same with Luke used in place of Luk. This story was easy to put aside during a time of travel. The good part was visualizing the places and landscape in the story. The romance portion was not com [...]

    13. Wonderful ReadIf you like a peek into a history and a trip through countryside you my not be familiar with, this is a wonderfully descriptive book. The author has done a great job, without the excessive sex and foul language that I refuse to read. I will look for more books by this author.

    14. Overall, pleasantly surprised by this book and author. Parallel storylines of Aimee/Luc and Amy/Luke, Middle Ages and present day, respectively - and their shared pilgrimages along the famed Camino de Santiago. This book might have done better with the medieval storyline alone to sustain it. The current timeline seemed a distraction to that wonderful story.

    15. Wonderful Chase!Love, love, love this book! So glad I had a chance to read it. A wonderful adventure moving between present day and the 1300's. I was sorry to see it come to an end. Delightful!

    16. RivetingI truly enjoyed learning the history of this medieval period. Also, the roles that France, Spain and the Templers played were fascinating. I liked the different spin of a parallel story in present time.

    17. Two Couples, one interesting storyI enjoyed the story about Luc and Aimee. The other couple's story just wasn't as intriguing. However, in all fairness, they were kind of channeling the other couple and so their journey made sense. I would mostly recommend this story.

    18. Fine, but nothing special in my opinion. The romance on the modern-day end felt pretty hokey. Would have preferred to keep the modern-day plot line at a minimum to focus on the historical plot line.

    19. I’ve read a few of this author’s books before and enjoyed them and when I saw this new one advertised as a time-slip novel, I couldn’t resist. Although it was a good story, I was a little disappointed with the so-called time-slip element. To me, time-slip means one of the protagonists travelling back (or forwards) in time. The protagonists in this novel are Luc and Aimee in the 14th century and Luke and Amy in the 21st century. We follow both couples on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Composte [...]

    20. This is the second time slip romance I've read in the last couple of weeks and it's a genre I'm loving more and more. T A Williams has written many romcoms but this is his first time slip romance, with his love of history I was really excited about this release and I wasn't disappointed.The story starts back in 1314 in the Pyrenees were a terrible crime has been committed. Back in the present day we meet Amy who was involved in a tragic accident 5 years ago which has left her blind. Amy has been [...]

    21. I have well documented how much I enjoy books by this author, how there is a certain amount of comfort knowing you can immerse yourself in one of his stories and know it will leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling at the end. So when I heard he was branching out into a 'time-slip' novel I was a little (ok a lot) dubious as to whether it would work on the same level of enjoyment.With trepidation I embarked on the journey with Luke and Amy both troubled souls for different reasons bought together by [...]

    22. I always enjoy Trevor's books and this is a new genre for him so I was looking forward to reading it. Time slip is one of my favourite genres and this one certainly didn't disappoint.We follow the stories of Amy & Luke in 2016 and Aimee and Luc in 1314. Both pairs are on a Pilgrimage on the Camino and their stories interlink as the book progresses. Modern day Amy has been blinded in a dreadful accident and Luke has emotional baggage. In 1314 Aimee has been blinded in a bandit attack and Luc [...]
