ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Other books by Kathryn, A Promise to Remember was a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writers Book-of-the-Year in the Women’s Fiction category, and Waiting for Daybreak was a finalist in Women’s Fiction for the Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award.
Leaving Yesterday, her third novel, was a finalist for the ACFW Carol Award.
Now her fifth book, Another Dawn, has arrived in stores, and I’m very excited about it!
On the homefront, Kathryn has been married to Lee for over twenty years now, and their two daughters are currently braving the worlds of junior high and high school. They’ve lived in Santa Barbara for the last nineteen years. It’s a beautiful place and Kathryn feels blessed to be there (although a seventy degree Christmas still leaves her dreaming of a white one—or at least a colder one!)
ABOUT THE BOOK
Shoal Creek seems more backward than ever after her years in California, and it's hard to find organic food anywhere. When the unthinkable happens and her son is diagnosed with measles, Grace's fears over modern medicine take a dangerous turn.
Worse, the town has fallen into quarantine and its residents focus their anger and blame on Grace. She is alone and scared, until one brave woman chooses to reach out a hand of forgiveness and mercy. But when the outbreak takes a life-threatening turn, will Grace be able to forgive herself?
Another Dawn is a great story that deals with a real issue, to immunize your children or not. Is the risk of side effects greater than the risk of disease. This is a dilemma Grace finds herself in with her son. Not only is she dealing with the consequences of that decision, she is in the middle of a broken engagement, she is harboring unforgiveness towards her father, and she is a runner. Running from anything and everything that makes her uncomfortable. She feels she has been given the short end of the stick so many times and she doesn’t believe that will ever change. When everything around her starts falling apart, she realizes she is going to have to quit running and make some life changes or she is going to lose everything.
I received Another Dawn from Kathryn Cushman through Christian Fiction Blog Alliance in exchange for my honest opinion. I would recommend this book to everyone. There is lots in it we can all learn from.
