Another Dawn by Kathryn Cushman

Grace Graham is a young single mom raising a four year old boy.
She made a new life for herself in California, after high school, leaving her dad and sister in Tennessee.
She hasn't had a healthy relationship with her dad since her mom passed away her senior year of high school, as she blames him for her mom's death.
Some might say that she "runs away" from her problems.
When she is needed back home in Tennessee and life isn't going as planned in California, she takes the two week trip home.
While there, however, tragedy strikes her family due to a personal decision she made for her son- not vaccinating him.

Will Grace learn to forgive and accept her father and face her problems?

I really enjoyed this book as I found Grace to be very interesting, especially in how she was raising her son and the decisions she was making concerning him.
This book brings up many thought provoking questions about forgiveness and the different paths in life we choose.

I was intrigued by the vaccination issue. I have struggled with this issue myself concerning my child and while we do choose to vaccinate it is definitely not without prayer asking God for protection. I really appreciated how the author graciously brought forth both sides of the issue.

I was given this book by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
