In July 1984, Julie LeJardin ran with her four-year-old son, Nathan, and her two-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, in violation of a visitation court order. Julie learned to live clandestinely in Arizona. She figured out how to create new identities for herself and her children. As Julie progressed toward her goal of reestablishing their lives with a viable means of support, she was aware that at any moment their world could crumble. If this were not enough of a challenge, Julie was faced with the daunting task of rehabilitating her young children from the ravages of her ex-husband’s unspeakable abuse. Elizabeth’s fractured clavicle was still mending beneath a back brace that wrapped around her shoulders. Nathan, who had retreated to a secret world within before they had escaped, emerged as a wounded, bitter child with an explosive temper. Escaping the Shadow, follows the courageous struggle of life underground for Julie and her preschoolers while being pursued by Julie’s ex-husband and the F.B.I. The elements of Julie’s case set a precedent for other parents who ran with their children in order to protect them from an abuser. The final legal battle will amaze and delight the reader. For those readers who enjoyed Kathleen Guillen’s first novel, The Shadow of Daddy, the story continues in Escaping the Shadow.
