Review: The Shadow Land

The Shadow Land The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The more books I read by Elizabeth Kostova, the more I like this author. "The Historian", "The Swan Thieves" and now "The Shadow Land", all amazing.

It all starts with a "misunderstanding". Elizabeth Boyd, a young American woman, has just landed in Bulgaria. The taxi she takes to her hostel takes her to the wrong place, where she helps a Bulgarian family into another car. She realizes she has mistakenly kept a bag belonging to this family, and that she must return it as it contains human ashes.

Helped by Bobbie, her new cab driver who soon turns into a friend, she travels across the country searching for them.

Part mystery, part historical fiction, we discover along with Alexandra the history of a country that has suffered immensely.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
