I just finished "Another Dawn" by Kathryn Cushman, which was given to me by Bethany House Publishers so I could write a review. I have to admit, from the very beginning of the book I was a little aggravated with the main character. From the first few moments of the book, she had strong opinions about things such as letting her child play in a public sandbox (too many germs), using an old thermometer (because of the mercury in it), using her father's laundry detergent (too many chemicals), and not drinking Sprite (it's made up of just sugar and chemicals). She was pretty depressing and a little annoying. But the debate of whether or not you should vaccinate your children was raised in this book, and it was a very extreme case that brought up this issue. The story itself is actually good, and the ending is incredibly sweet. So if you can get past these few irritations (or maybe they won't even irritate you) I would recommend this book. Also, if you feel strongly about the issue of vaccinations, you may want to skip this book. Faith is an underlying topic in this book, and especially forgiveness, but it is certainly not brought up frequently when it doesn't apply, like many Christian fiction books.
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishing Group for this review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
