Land of Careful Shadows by award-winning author Suzanne Chazin is a powerful mystery full of passion and secrets that deals with a clash of cultures and familial relationships, and it's full of drama, mystery, and raw emotions. When the dead body of a Latino woman is found in a reservoir about 50 miles north of Manhattan, with a photo of a baby in her purse nearby, the police try to determine who the child is and if it is still alive. Along with the photo, they also find a disturbing note in the purse: "Go back to your country. You don't belong here."

Vega must rethink everything he believes in order to uncover the truths about his town, his family, and himself.

A 17-year-old girl falls in love with a Latino immigrant in this powerhouse novel about taboo passion and interracial love. Annabel Brown's first glimpse of the boy fated to change her life is on a soccer field near her home in the resort town of Seaview, Long Island. His name is Esteban Santiago, and he came to town as a member of a crew hired by Annabel's father, a widowed contractor. From the moment they see each other, Annabel and Esteban know they're meant to be together. They couldn't be more different. Annabel is a blue-eyed blonde from a wealthy family living a life of privilege and ease. Esteban is an illegal immigrant from Colombia. With both of their families violently opposed to the relationship, they have to sneak around, leaving love notes in library books and meeting secretly on the beach late at night. As the summer - and their romance - progresses, racial tensions flare, threatening to turn this peaceful Hamptons town into a powder keg. Set against the backdrop of the Iraq War and Hurricane Katrina, Someone like Summer has undertones of a modern-day West Side Story, as it confronts issues of class, race, prejudice, and a love that transcends every stereotype. 1.
