Praise for Shadow Child:
“Stephen Doster is a master in narrative storytelling. This moving testimony to coastal Georgia’s history tells the story of survival and growth with tales of high-spirited valor and bold tenacity. The tone of the book shifts in interest as Doster describes the danger and treachery of the early Native Americans, Spanish and English settlers to the tenderness and integrity of slave families, to the often humorous Gullah-Geechee voodoo stories. Some of the characters (and even a Spanish bell) flit from one tale to the next. Told with delicacy and inspiration, Stephen Doster’s craft and keen insight as a native Georgia historian will make you weep (Tides Turning), laugh uproariously (Casagrande) and marvel as you absorb his writing. When you get to Kiss the Rim, it’s pure magic! A FIVE STAR read!” Pamela Bauer Mueller/Author Neptune's Honor, An Angry Drum Echoed, Splendid Isolation
"Having immersed myself completely in non-fiction recently, I’d totally forgotten how delicious historical fiction could be until I read Stephen Doster’s new book, Shadow Child. As a Saint Simons resident, the stories have a special meaning for me, like a box of candy for a sweet tooth. Whatever you’re looking for in your next read, this book has it all. I highly recommend it.” Tom Dennard -- Author of Discovering Life's Trails, Born a Ramblin' Man, and Daily Words to Inspire You
