REVIEW: Shine Like the Dawn by Carrie Turansky

About the Book

Separated by an inconceivable tragedy, can faith and love reunite childhood friends and light the way to a bright future? 
In a quiet corner of northern Edwardian England, Margaret Lounsbury diligently works in her grandmother's millinery shop, making hats and caring for her young sister. Several years earlier, a terrible event reshaped their family, shattering an idyllic life and their future prospects. Maggie is resilient and will do what she must to protect her sister Violet. Still, the loss of her parents weighs heavily on her heart because she wonders if what happened that day on the lake...might not have been an accident. 
When wealthy inventor and industrialist William Harcourt dies, his son and Maggie's estranged childhood friend, Nathaniel returns from his time in the Royal Navy and inherits his father's vast estate, Morningside Manor. He also assumes partial control of his father's engineering company and the duty of repaying an old debt to the Lounsbury family. But years of separation between Nate and Maggie have taken a toll and Maggie struggles to trust her old friend. 
Can Maggie let go of the resentment that keeps her from forgiving Nate--and reconciling with God? Will the search for the truth about her parents' death draw the two friends closer or leave them both with broken hearts?

My Review

When devestating tragedy occurs on a family trip Margaret Lounsbury's life is changed forever. However she must go on so she can protect her sister Violet. Questions being asked about what really happened that frightening and fateful day. And there just might be romance along the way. Shine Like the Dawn does an excellent job transporting us to 1900's Victorian England. Twists and turns that kept me reading to the very end. This was not my first Carrie Turansky book, but it surely won't be my last.
