My Review:

Charlotte and Bob Stevenson are devestated when they find out that their daughter, Denise, is killed in a tragic automobile accident. The lives of Denise’s three children, Sam, Emily and Christopher, are thrown in turmoil. Not only must they cope with the death of the only parent in their lives but they must also leave their home and friends behind in California to move to Nebrasksa to live with their grandparents in their home on Heather Creek. Grandparents they barely know. When Denise was eighteen she ran away from home, never to return. Now Charlotte must face the task of raising three kids as well as come to terms with the fact that she never truly reconciled with her daughter. When rumors about Denise begin to circle around town, the newfound hope that is taking root in the children’s hearts is threatened. But amid the trials a tribulations that come their way, God reveals a hope, love and an awakening to the close knit Family they can be. God proves that it is always darkest Before the Dawn of a new morning.

While Before the Dawn is a heart warming story of hope, love and Faith, it’s also a story of tragedy, despair and devestation. Even though this story is fictional it deals with real-life events that happen every day in families throughout the world. The loss of a child or a parent with young children can be heart wrenching and leave devestation in it’s wake. Before the Dawn deals with these events in a most touching way and really opened my eyes to what children go through with the loss of a parent. Charlotte and Bob try to ease the children’s pain and help them settle into their new lives and I love that they worked so hard to instill Faith in God in them as well. I am partial to fictional romance books but, I can honestly say, I didn’t miss the lack of romance in this story. I certainly recommend this book to anyone who loves a story of hope and faith amid trials and tribulation.

nullMy Review:

It’s finally harvest time on the farm. A time for hard work to reap the benefits of this year’s planting. Harvest time at Heather Creek Farm this year has it’s obstacles. Worn equipment and the challenges the children are facing after their mother’s death make things more difficult. Emily finds living on the farm a challenge. She misses her friends and wants to go back to California, Sam is failing in school and doesn’t seem to care, and Christopher is always keeping to himself. It seems the barn cats are his best friends. Charlotte isn’t sure how to get through to the three of them and feels her stress mounting daily. Add to that the fact that someone is stealing food from her garden and that means less food for the table. But God uses a total stranger to open their eyes and make them realize they are truly blessed.

I fall in love with this family a little more with each book. Their continuing story draws me in and I just want to keep reading. Charlotte is at her wits end and her stress level is high. She doesn’t want to make the same mistakes with her grandkids as she did with her own kids so she is always second guessing herself with each decision. But I loved the way God helped her release her stress by allowing her to help someone in dire need. One man changed the entire family’s outlook on their own lives and that in itself is a true miracle. Grace flowing like a river. Sam, Emily and Christopher, with God’s help, pick themselves up and begin their lives anew. You will adore the Stevenson family and want to read more. Their family is a family of strong faith and Charlotte and Bob are doing their best to pass this faith on to their grandkids. And, since I am a romance junkie, I am excited to say that I sense a little spark of romance in future books. If you love sweet, wholesome stories you’ll enjoy Sweet September.
