I haven’t read many books that take place in England during the 1800s, but it didn’t take long to ‘get into’ the story. Shine Like the Dawn pulls you in from the first chapter.
Maggie Lounsbury is a well-developed character, and I cared about what she went through. I love it when I feel I’m somewhat shouldering a character’s plight, making me feel like part of the story.
This story pulled a variety of emotions from me. I’m happy I got to know Maggie and Nate, and hope this is the beginning of a series.
I received a complimentary copy of Shine Like the Dawn from the publisher.
