I bought this book when I found out Native Americans were a part of the story. I enjoyed how the author used real Navajo words and customs. Frankly, I thought the author must have lived in the location of this book and personally knew about this culture, so I was floored when I found out she had never been in the United States. That was awesome research! And she also converted the book from Dutch into English (and American English at that!). Very admirable.
I loved the storyline that included Hannah, Josh (the hot Native American), and Hannah's brother Ben. There were aspects of reincarnation, animal spirit guides, a wise medicine man, and skinwalkers (think of evil ghosts that can change into people or animals) that drew me in and had me hooked. There was romance, humor, horror, and history all wrapped in this book that made it a joy to read.

Ever since the very first pages, I felt incredibly hooked by the story. I usually know right from the beggining if I like a book or not, and it seems that I was right this time too.

Hannah is a lovable character right from the start, with her shyness, sense of humour and insecureness. She is very dedicated in everything she does, and will not back out when it comes to the people she loves, even if she is in mortal danger. Throughout the book, I could relate to most of what she was experiencing, but I felt a little bit annoyed when she was crying like a baby because of Josh. However, I also think that this would have been the case for any of us women if we had had to go through a situation like hers. I could tell from very early on that there was something more to Josh than met the eye. And it's such a pity I can't tell you how amazing it was when I discovered exactly what. I would spoil the book for you if I did. His connection to Hannah is very clear, not only to them, but also to the people around them. It literally made me mumble "you idiot!" anytime Josh was afraid of getting involved into a serious relationship with her. I loved him at the beggining, hated him and ended up loving him a lot more when I found out about his motives.

My favourite parts were definitely the ones where the Dinè's way of life was detailed. From the way they think and eat, to the way they act and talk. Jen documented herself very well and it is amazing to what extent she managed to describe everything, especially when you find out that she has never been to America, let alone Navajo Nation!

First let me say, I loved the title, Shadow of Time. There is something just elegant about the name of this book and I was intrigued to read it from the get-go! Oh and I am so glad I got in on the reading and reviewing of Ms Minkman's book. It was awesome.

Her characters are quite believable and quite likable as well. Hannah is brave and strong when faced with the things she does not understand. She is faithful and loyal to her friends and her younger brother and finds herself falling in love with Josh, who she had watched grow up throughout the years. Now that he is almost an adult and built very sensually, she just can't help but fall for him.

The storyline centers around a curse....a very old and dangerous curse. It started with Josh and now it includes Hannah too. There is a lot of Indian lore, spiritualism, and ritual as well as past life experience in this read.

I loved how Ms. Minkman told her story......smooth and fluent. I loved the bond between Hannah, Josh and Ben. I loved watching Hannah and Josh's romance bloom and grow. It certainly was a read about sustaining friendships, and love throughout the ages.

As a reader, I felt like the author did a lot of wonderful research and I felt like I came away knowing more about Navajo Nation than I ever dreamed possible. Thank you Ms. Minkman for having the passion and commitment to write such a beautiful book.

It's a pretty young Y/A book with an interesting story line. Heroine falls for younger guy... under age, (why couldn't he have been 18 instead of 17? And she is a first year teacher.? ) Why the 2 star rating?... well, it was deceptive. This book, quite literally, was basically torn in half. The story leads you into the story, then just stops. You must buy the second book... There is no conclusion in book 1. The fact that my kindle told me that there was suppose to be 412 pages in the novel. I must have been speed reading-NOT, to come to the end of "book 1" so quickly. In fact the second book just starts on the very next sentence or chapter. So, unless you are prepared to BUY the second book, don't start the first.

Nowhere did I see it mentioned that this story ends, whoops wrong words. t doesn't end, it falls off a cliff. Only to be continued in Book 2. Yes, this book I got free, but I probably wouldn't have been so quick to grab it if I had know about the cliffhanger. While the story was kind of interesting, it did go kind of slow. Not bad if you don't mind having to finish it with another book.
