Publisher's Description

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?

    Ahh. I just adore Carrie Turanskys beautiful writing! Like her previous historical series, the faiths and prayers were incredible and inspiring in Shine Like the Dawn. Honestly, this is such a pretty book! From the stunning cover and the Scripture inspired title (Psalm 37:5-6) to the intriguing plot! I so love and appreciate how clean this talented authors books are and have been impressed every time I pick one up.

    Maybe its because Nathaniel is one of my favorite boy names ever, but I found this Nate to be one of the best & most life-like/real heroes Ive ever read. Maggie could be a bit too stubborn at times, but I understood where she was coming from, so it didnt bother me. ;)

    {Everything that says up to semi-detailed, was truly barely over the barely-above-not-detailed scale. So, so clean.}

    I thought seeing one couple falling in love was neat, but I really liked the added romance of Lilly & Rob being engaged and in love by seeing her point of view. Such a neat bonus! :)

    *BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.

    *I received this book for free from the Author for this honest review.

    For the most part, I liked this story. There were some interesting twists to the plot and most of the characters were likable. Little Violet was sweet and Grandmother Hays added wisdom. Nate was an admirable hero who had strength of character. Maggie was the one I had trouble with. Though she had tragedies in her life that would certainly affect her, she continued to hang on to bitterness, pride, and just plain stubbornness. She would finally make some progress, then something else would happen and she'd be right back in the stubborn, prideful thinking. I confess I got really annoyed with her. Thankfully, she makes much character growth by the end of the book.

    I received a complementary copy of the book from the publisher, but this did not affect my review.

    Ever since Maggie's parents and sister died in a horrible boating accident, Maggie's life has been hard. She and her baby sister lost their home and had to move in with their grandma. And Maggie's best friend, Nate, seemingly deserted her in her time of need. Now, years later, he's back in town just as her little family faces another hard situation. Will he come through for her this time ... if she can forgive him enough to let him back into her life?

    Shine Like the Dawn was a lovely historical romance. I loved Carrie Turansky's other novels and was excited to read this one. It did not disappoint. The romance was sweet and the ongoing mystery was intriguing.

    Maggie had a lot of hardship, bitterness, and grief to overcome before she could be fully ready to have a real relationship with Nate. And Nate had many problems to struggle through also, including communication problems, bitterness toward his parents, !and his inheritance (including workers going on strike). The characters faced many difficult things in this novel, but they struggled through them to overcome them beautifully.

    I really enjoyed this book and look forward to Carrie Turansky's upcoming releases. I recommend it to fans of sweet historical romance.

    I received a complementary copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Shine Like the Dawn by Carrie Turansky sweeps readers back in time to 1903 Heatherton, England. In 1899 the Lounsbury family (Daniel, Abigail, Olivia, Maggie, and Violet) are enjoying Olivias birthday by taking a picnic across the lake. They are far into the lake when the boat starts taking on water. Unable to row the boat back to shore in time, they start swimming to shore. Unfortunately, only Maggie and Violet make it back alive. Four years later, Maggie and Violet are living with their Grandmother Hayes above her millinery shop. Nate Harcourt is returning home to Morningside Manor after a four years absence to see his father before he passes away. Maggie and Nate used to be good friends before she lost her family. She has not forgiven him for not being there for her when they died. Nate inherits his fathers estate and Clifton Engineering Works. Nate promised his father that he would care for his stepmother, Helen and stepsister, Clare. Helen, though, does not make this task easy. Maggie received her fathers journal after his death, but just recently started reading it. She finds out that someone had reason to harm him and he was threatened shortly before his death. Could the boat have been sabotaged? After a fire destroys the millinery, Nate invites Maggie, Violet and Grandmother Hayes to stays at Morningside Manor. This could be Maggies opportunity to find the evidence she needs. Nate is grateful to spend time with Maggie and, hopefully, repair their old friendship. Will Nate help Maggie with her quest?

    Shine Like the Dawn is a well-written and researched novel. Carrie Turanky captured the setting and the historical period. The author brought the characters to life and gave them real personalities. We are given characters to love and a couple to dislike. The book had a good pace, but I thought it was slightly too long. Shine Like the Dawn captured and held my attention. The Christian element is light (not preachy). Maggie had closed her heart to God and let in anger and hurt instead. She does not understand how God can let good people die and suffer (something I struggle with myself). One of the main messages in the novel is to let God in to heal your heart and comfort you. I give Shine Like the Dawn 4 out of 5 stars. I appreciated the mystery element that was present in the story. It enhanced the novel. There are other issues in the story (I could not describe everything in my summary). Nate learning to run his fathers company, workers wanting to strike, Maggie struggling to forgive Nate (she only knows her side of the story, romance between Nate and Maggie, Violet injuring her leg, the rebuilding of the millinery, and Lillys romance with Rob are some of the other storylines. The novel has a lovely and fulfilling conclusion. Shine Like the Dawn is a good book for readers who enjoy Christian, historical books (set in the Edwardian period). This was the first book I have read by Carrie Turansky, and it is not my last.
