About the Author

Caroline Frost has a Master of Professional Writing degree from the University of Southern California and is a licensed marriage and family therapist. Although she currently resides in Pasadena, California, with her husband and three small children, her roots in Texas run deep. Shadows of Pecan Hollow is her first novel.


"How do we let go of a dark, menacing past, especially when a dangerous love still binds us to it? Frost's extraordinary debut is about Kit, a young mother struggling to raise her daughter, and to erase her abduction at 13 by a thief, who coerced her into crime and into his heart. Dazzling, unexpected and profound, this is a shattering page-turner about how love can twist our lives into something we no longer recognize, and how we might find our way back to our best selves and to the communities that just might save us. In a word: brilliant." --Caroline Leavitt, bestselling author of With or Without You
"What immense talent flows through this spellbinding story! Everything is here: magnetic characters, fierce momentum, and great authenticity of voice, place and thought. I was stunned in the best possible way throughout. How does Caroline Frost do it, I marveled; how does she know this? What an amazing, rewarding feat of craftsmanship and love!" --Elinor Lipman, author of Rachel to the Rescue
"With a strong sense of time and place, Caroline Frost's debut novel weaves an authentic southern tale of need, necessity, survival, and forgiveness, with love as the enduring force that guides."--Deb Spera, author of Call Your Daughter Home
"'Paper Moon' meets 'Badlands' in this mesmerizing Texas backroads thriller, a twisty story of a runaway girl who finds a home and a desperate love on the road with an opportunistic criminal, and the long comet's tail of their story. A notable debut, drenched in regional detail and told in a gritty, sensual prose."--Janet Fitch, #1 New York Times bestselling author of White Oleander
"Shadows of Pecan Hollow is a hugely satisfying slow burn of a novel that builds to a wrenching, unforgettable blaze. Frost explores the lives of her complex, arresting characters with nuance, compassion, and an unwavering gaze. Highly recommended."--Lou Berney, Edgar-award winning author of November Road
