Local author Mary Cantell has set her just-released second novel, “Untying the Shadows,” in the affluent town ranked 14th on the list of “100 best places to live in the U.S” by Money magazine, a prosperous burg that only fairly recently landed its first Starbucks: Blue Bell.
All landmarks, such as parks, are rechristened with fictional names in the book, allowed Cantell, who had referenced the Main Line area of St. Davids in her previous book, “Her Glass Heart,” writes Gary Puleo at timesherald.com.
“Untying the Shadows” is published by eLectio, a publisher of Christian-based works. In that respect, Cantell said her writing is “wholesome and entertaining contemporary fiction,” containing “mystery and/or a romance element with historic back story and inspirational messages for women” at its core.
“It’s clean, but not like the Amish Christian fiction. To call it Christian fiction would probably be a misnomer because it’s not preachy,” she said. “The protagonist’s world view is a Christian world view, but you don’t see anything about abstaining from sex or anything like that. In the first book, there was a message about when reaching for any kind of love we can find, we think we’re looking for gold or silver but it turns out to be tinsel.”
