BEYOND THE SHADOWS
The theft of two prized thoroughbred horses triggers consequences beyond all proportion. How could they disappear from a remote sheep station in the foothills of New Zealand’s Southern Alps?
During the search, Tom Herrington discovers a body in a cave. From this one incident life is never the same for the Herrington family. Drama, conflict, passion and revenge unfold a deadly secret from the past that Tom had endeavoured to keep hidden.
WW2 is raging all over Europe and New Zealand is threatened by the Japanese onslaught throughout the Pacific Ocean. Tom’s son, Jack, is captain of a merchant ship. He and his sister are caught up in the Pearl Harbour attack. When Japanese submarines capture his ship, he finds a way to escape using knowledge gleaned from his father’s secret, dating back to 1895.
Throughout the war years the Herrington family keep a united front to survive this and every problem thrown at them.

Beryl Armstrong was born in New Zealand but moved to England in her infancy. Her family were constantly on the move, in search of work and accommodation, so her own schooling was continually interrupted, before she settled at High School in Bournemouth. She then worked in a dispensary for eight years before her children were born. After a two-year tour of India she became an award-winning amateur filmmaker and wrote her first novel. After this she wrote many more novels that were rarely submitted. As cine gave way to video she changed course and became an expert dolls’ house maker. She has since published two books on the subject and regularly writes for trade magazines. Her fascination for Pacific Islands and especially New Zealand inspired her to write Where Shadows Fall. The best of her previous novels are also in the process of revision.
