Another Dawn, by Kathryn Cushman. Grace Graham is a single mom with a darling little boy who is her world, Dylan. He is the only one Grace hasn't ran from. When times get tough Grace tends to take off, she always has. Only now her sister has called her to help care for her father who is undergoing surgery and gives her the ultimatium to step up as a part of the family or get out. Grace not wanting to loose the relationship she has with her sister makes the trip to care for her father for a couple of weeks. Only Grace didn't see coming the outbreak of measles effecting her and her home town. When her son contacts the measles because of a decision grace made not to get him vaccinated. She finds herself in the toughest situation she's had to face yet. Almost and entire town angry with you, including your own sister! Not only that but the guilt of bring this disease with them and infecting the littlest of the community who can't be vaccinated against it.
This was an excellent book! I really just couldn't put it down! It was so nice to read a Christian fiction novel about a young woman that wasn't a romance novel! There are so many lessions about God through out this book too! I look forward to reading more books from Kathryn Cushman! My only objection to this book is that in the end it seems to be portrayed that she made the wrong choice for not vaccinating and she should have. Vaccinating is a personal choice for each parent to make and I didn't feel like the book needed to go in that direction.
