Book: When Nighttime Shadows Fall
Synopsis: In the early 1970s, Laura Bauer decides to leave college and head fifty miles north of her comfortable Atlanta home to manage a federally funded project aiding pregnant teenagers from the back roads of Appalachia. Almost as young as her clients, Laura is immediately confronted with – and almost overwhelmed by – a variety of young women in desperate circumstances, having no other source of prenatal care. Cantor's second novel portrays the world of these girls with compassion, hardscrabble humor, and reverence for their families' capacities to prevail despite hardships. As an outsider whose urban upbringing is vastly different from those of her clients, Laura must win their trust and overcome her own inexperience and the magnitude of the need she finds. "When Nighttime Shadows Fall" movingly portrays Laura's clients as they search for love from boyfriends, husbands, and babies. Some find it, but ultimately, through powerful revelations, their strength comes from within.
