Suspenseful and intriguing, this is the kind of dual-time story that delivers in its uniqueness.
After her grandfather dies, Solveig travels from Norway to settle his estate. She finds it a daunting task, going through things that bring memories of her childhood. But after meeting Kyle Burton, things take a different twist. Kyle is looking for a fresh start after committing his life to Christ.
This author skillfully meshes two timelines-the present and 1912 Virginia- in a tantalizing way. Mysterious things become clear once the digging for historical records commences and connections are made in a surprising way. It only adds to the suspense as Kyle plays a dangerous game in order to avenge his brother. The romance develops slowly in the present while in the past it is tangled. The faith thread is authentic and inspirational.
A new-to-me author that I will definitely be reading again.

TWO HEARTS BROKEN ALONG THE SAME JAGGED EDGE MAKE A GRISLY DISCOVERY DEEP IN THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY
Present Day. Solveig Borja fled Virginia to escape the guilt of one reckless night, and once she settles the family estate, she’s Norway-bound and never looking back. Meanwhile, Kyle Benton has come seeking asylum from past sins—which Solveig shatters even as their hopeless romance blooms. But when they discover a skeleton at Rice Caverns, its century-old mystery holds startling links to the here-and-now.
1919. The Great War is won. Gussie Rice longs for her beau's return from France, until she learns he’s confined at a stateside hospital and her closest confidant is part of the secret. Her bid for love sparks a confrontation that ricochets through time...
Bad blood and escalating threats swirl around Solveig, and Kyle’s new life proves no haven from the old with his brother's killer trolling the shadows. As the past rears up, the cavern’s hidden places beckon with power to light their hope or to swallow them in utter darkness.
