Facing the Dawn Review

My Review

I haven't read a book like Facing The Dawn by Cynthia Ruchti in a long time.

Tissues are required for this one.

This is so realistic, the characters could be your neighbors or even yourself.

This book touched my heart and the author has written it just right showing compassion where it was needed but giving a pep talk and true encouragement when needed as well.

Mara Jacobs is the families strength at least she feels like she should be but it's so hard to hold it together as she promised her husband she could.

She is crumbling but can't let it show . Her husband has been gone, doing missionary work in Africa, digging wells as a humanitarian helping widows and children . She's proud of him but she's so lonely in her marriage and her children are floundering without

their father's direction.

Then the unthinkable happens and the sunshine goes out in her life as the news

of his death reaches her.

Her faith is fragile , she has the support of her best friend but friends can only do so much as renewal has to come from within through God strengthening us.

When she receives the devastating news of another tragedy will sh

e be able to find the resilience to continue on?

Beautifully worded and encouraging book through tragedy as

she seeks redemption and the healing waters.

Highly recommended!
