Hope at Dawn by Stacy Henrie {Written by Emilee}

I'm excited to share with you another wonderful book called,

Hope at Dawn

by Stacy Henrie

As some of you may know, I served a mission in the Detroit, Michigan Mission years ago. Sister Scott (Stacy Henrie) also served in the same mission but I never got to be companions with her. However, I did go on a few splits with her. She was a remarkable missionary and I look up to her. I was excited to find out about her first book, Lady Outlaw (which I haven't read yet). This year, Hope at Dawn was published so I asked Stacy if I could review it and she said, "YES."

Hope at Dawn by Stacy Henrie

Hope at Dawn: Book 1

(Now Available!): With her brothers away fighting the Great War overseas, Livy Campbell desperately wants to help her family. Her chance comes when she meets a handsome stranger who lands her a job as a teacher in a place far from her parents' farm. But the war casts a long shadow over the German-American town that Livy now calls home-and the darkness will test everything she thought she knew about family and love . . .
More than anything, Friedrick Wagner wants to be part of his adopted country's struggle for peace. But when the bitter animosity between Germans and Americans soon turns citizens against newcomers, friend against friend, he will do whatever it takes to protect Livy from the hysteria that grips their town. As tragedy-and dark secrets from the past-threaten their future, Friedrick and Livy have one chance to stand up for what's right . . . and one chance to fight for their love

In my opinion:

Well, it didn't surprise me that I enjoyed Hope at Dawn because I personally know the author. I was honored to receive an autographed book by Stacy. She wrote,
"Emilee, look on the heart." The book was based on looking beyond the outside beauty and believing. A few things I liked about the book were the characters were real.  At first, it felt like a fairy tale when the two main characters met for the first time. But, then we met them and understood what they were going through. Livy and Fredrick had real life problems in the 1900's. They quickly learned how to deal with their trials and challenges. I definitely related and know we can get through the challenges we face in today's society. As long as we never stop believing...


I also liked how the story captured my attention right away. I could disappear for a few hours into Stacy's story. I felt like I was one of the characters that helped Livy fight her battles.  I'm excited to read the next book in the Of Love and War Series. It is coming December 16th, 2014 so be sure to mark your calendar. I only wish that it had the same characters. However, I'm sure it will be amazing. I enjoyed reading Hope at Dawn and know that each of you will love it as well.
