Could you be His hands and feet to children who had lost everything?
From the back cover:
As the hurricane forces Jacqueline to evacuate, her need for purpose and restitution forces her to head north to her estranged daughter. The same path leads her right into the arms of a handsome new friend. Dealing with his own issues, Jacqueline isn’t sure, though, if he will be the one she can lean on during the difficult days ahead. And then — there are the three orphans to consider. Must she relinquish her chance at having love again in order to have peace? When Dawn Breaks is a contemporary romance novel filled with humor, romance, and intrigue, along with characters overcoming life’s obstacles and embracing hope.
Real characters fill the pages of When Dawn Breaks. From broken relationships to challenging work environments, lost and hurting people to “good Samaritans,” Jennifer Slattery keeps it realistic. And realistic is not always pretty.
When tough times come, our character is often revealed through our reactions. Will we trust God to see us through and meet our needs, will we lash out at those around us, or will we run and hide?
Jacqueline and Jonathan are both older characters (compared to the more common twenty-somethings in so many novels) which offers a fresh perspective to the story. Gavin’s teen experiences balance theirs as the threads begin to skillfully weave together.
When Dawn Breaks is one of those novels that offers you an opportunity to pause and reflect on your own life. If you were in that position, would you respond the way Jacqueline (or Jonathan) did? Perhaps more importantly, looking at where you are today, despite the regrets in your past, will you choose to allow God to work through you? Will you be His hands and feet?
If you’d like to know more “behind the scenes,” be sure to check back on Monday, January 26th when Jennifer will be visiting with us! 🙂
