Before the Dawn by Carolyne Aarson

After the sudden death of her daughter, a farmer’s wife finds herself raising her teenage grandchildren, who are used to urban life.

I don’t ordinarily read books like Before the Dawn, but a good friend of mine recommended it, and I always check out recommendations.

The setup of the book is quite simple, nothing very innovative, but I did find Charlotte’s dilemma affecting. Perhaps it’s because I’m a mom, and anticipating the kinds of struggles Charlotte is facing, that I was intrigued by the storyline. Before the Dawn is a light, diverting read, so if you like farms and family conflict, it’s perfect for relaxing on a rainy day.
