Until the Dawn

Title:  Until the Dawn
Author:  Elizabeth Camden
Pages:  348
Year:  2015
Publisher:  Bethany House
Sophie van Riijn is 26 years old, has been engaged three times and finds herself at the mercy of a cranky homeowner.  She has spent most of her life at the local estate of a wealthy family who abandoned the mansion sixty years prior.  Her town is in desperate need of a financial means to support itself, so they have started a tourism business with the mansion as the center piece.  The grandson of the owner arrives on the scene and is filled with anger at how his family home has been used.  He has returned to the family home at the request of his grandfather to tear down the house.
Sophie intends to find out why the house is to be destroyed as well as champion her hometown as the site for a weather station.  She has volunteered for the last nine years to collect weather information daily and telegraph it to Washington, D.C.  She feels a sense of purpose and responsibility in this role.  Now, her purpose and livelihood are in grave danger of being destroyed.  Surely she can convince the grouchy grandson to stop the demolition or at least delay it until she can figure out a way to save it.
Elizabeth Camden has a God-given talent for writing wonderful historical romance novels.  Each of her novels is a standalone stories filled with God-centered characters.  In this story, Sophie van Riijn lives her life looking for the blessings God gives her each day.  She is hope-filled, optimistic and grounded in her faith.  She lives each day, showing people the love God has shown her.  She might be a fictional character, but the way she lives her life is not and is something to be emulated.  She shows a wonderful example of compassion, mercy and love to those who are hurting and not always nice to her.  What a great example for me!  Don’t miss this wonderful story!!
My rating is 5 stars.
