In Shadows Of Men Get readers meet the real women of NYC. Azra’s new release provides an intimate portrait of one unique group of women and chronicles their triumphs and tragedies as they raise children and manage difficult jobs.

Andrea Bennett is in love with her boss -- who just happens to be married to the chairman’s daughter. Patrice Bernard’s cop boyfriend has a habit of using her as his punching bag. Renata Thomas has given everything for her family -- until a devastating diagnosis turns her life upside down. Kristin Scott is a successful therapist who’s just realized she wants back the one thing she may not be able to have: her ex-lover, Nick.

Suddenly these varied women find their lives collide in the most unusual ways as they battle to achieve success out of the shadows of their men.

Smart, savvy and powerfully moving, Shadows of Men is about the unconquerable female spirit and its capacity to help both women and men to live, laugh and love together.
