    The patient building of characters drew me in to such an extent I was worried for Henry’s daughter even as she had grown into a strong successful woman. I shared the book with my mother & she became so enraged with Henry Davidson that I had to remind her that he was a fictional character. John is also meticulous in giving the reader a geographical feel for the setting. In short – he pulls you in. Janna Hill

    Shadows of Substance is a most absorbing and wonderful novel. John Flanagan deftly weaves good and evil into his strong characters as well as his accurate historical perspective. I can't say enough praise for this powerful story replete with mysteries of human nature, and it certainly has left a mark on my heart. Christine Tsen

    "Shadows of Substance" is a marvelously written novel. Author John Flanagan's knowledge of the locales and character types adds a unique richness that would otherwise not be possible. From the daily chores,customs and goings on of the Irish farming family McDermott and the village folk to the lifestyle and mystery of the wealthy English family Davidson, the author expertly captures and reveals it all. Characters move into and out of the story seamlessly. John has woven the dialog expertly into the fabric of the novel. A masterfully created and written novel that will hold your attention throughout. Jon Michael Willey

    "Shadows of Substance" Another very enjoyable read from John Flanagan. The characters come to life and the dialogue and emotions are authentic. By the end of the book I felt that I knew the two families personally. It is a book to be savoured. Rod McCormick
