Review: The Shadow Catcher’s Daughter by Carla Olson Gade

The Shadow Catcher’s Daughter is captivating and a great Sunday afternoon read. AND there’s an unexpected twist at the end. Just goes to show you…not everyone is as they seem.

Carla made it easy for me to commiserate with Eliana and fall in love with Triska. I loved her “romantic” descriptions of the mountains surrounding the Four Corners. She must be a poet at heart, as well as a terrific novelist.


Daring Eliana Van Horn aims to make her mark by joining her father as his photography assistant-disguised as a young man-on survey expedition to the remote Four Corners. 

Living in the shadows of his heritage, trail guide Yiska Wilcox is thrown off course when the shadow catcher’s daughter opens up the uncharted territory of his heart. 

As they travel through dangerous terrain in the mountains and deserts of Colorado and New Mexico, Eliana and Yiska must learn to overcome the barriers of culture, faith, and ideals to discover common ground. 

Though they are worlds apart, will they stake a chance on love?
