New Releases: Until the Dawn

Book Title: Until the Dawn
Author: Elizabeth Camden

Publication Date: December 1, 2015
Publisher: Bethany House

Description:
Fascinated by Dierenpark, an abandoned mansion high atop a windswept cliff in the Hudson River Valley, Sophie van Riijn sees no harm in setting up a rooftop weather station for her work with the newly established Weather Bureau. While the villagers are suspicious of the mysterious estate and its tragic history, Sophie has come to see it as her own enchanted piece of paradise.

The first Vandermark to return to the area in sixty years, Quentin intends to put an end to the shadowy rumors about the property that has brought nothing but trouble upon his family. Ready to tear down the mansion, he is furious to discover Sophie trespassing on his land.

Instantly at odds, Quentin and Sophie yet find common ground when she is the only one who can reach his troubled son. There's a light within Sophie that Quentin has never known, and a small spark of the hope that left him years ago begins to grow. But when the secrets of Dierenpark can no longer be kept in the past, will tragedy triumph or can their tenuous hope prevail?

My Review:
After reading an excerpt of this book I knew that I just had to read the whole thing! A romance between a woman and the man who's about to destroy everything she holds dear...totally irresistible. Also, being a big fan of all of Elizabeth Camden's books I figured I was guaranteed to love it!

Sophie van Riijn is probably one of my favorite book heroines. I loved her! She had such a sweet spirit and yet a determination to make her dreams a reality. Quentin, at first a miserable grump, can't help but be affected by Sophie's optimism and cheerfulness. I appreciated the strong Christian message throughout. A self-proclaimed atheist and firm believer in science, Quentin is persuaded by Sophie's influence to see Christianity in a whole new light.

I also found it interesting to get a glimpse of weather forecasting in it's earliest stages. You might not think it's that interesting of a time period to base a book on but Elizabeth Camden did a wonderful job creating a completely invigorating book.

My Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐
Note: I received this book through NetGalley. http://netgalley.
