The Shadows in My Soul is a story of the life of a young girl named Amber and her family in 1825 in the Midwest.
The old Victorian house they lived in was built in 1755 by a former sea captain and businessman named John Blake. The Johnsons married in 1800 and moved into the house in December 22,1805. John owned a hardware store, and his wife, Christine, was a midwife.
After discovering there was a mass murder of the Johnson family in the winter of November 1820, no one in Shadows Lane will talk about it.
