Charlotte Stevenson’s world changes suddenly when her daughter, Denise, dies leaving behind three children. Since Denise ran away from home as a teenager, Charlotte has never met her grandchildren and now she is having to raise them. The children, Sam, age 16, Emily, 14 and Christopher, 10, are in for a shock when they have to move from the big city to a farm in the middle of nowhere. Bob, Charlotte’s husband, has different ideas about how to raise the children and get them to adapt to their new home. Their son, Pete, is trying to help with the farm but Bob feels like he’s trying to take over. Eventually, compromises are made and bonds are formed and the promises of God come shining through in this heart-warming story of starting over and the gift of new beginnings.
An inspiring beginning to the Home to Heather Creek Series, “Before the Dawn” will make you laugh and cry at the same time. Sometimes you will wonder how Charlotte handles it all. Other times you will want her to throw in the towel. But Charlotte knows who she receives her strength from and often turns her troubles and pain over to God who comes through for her in the wisdom of friends and family.
I already love this series. It promises to be filled with awe-inspiring stories of how God works in our lives and will remind us that God cares for each and every part of our lives.
