Follow the Dawn

Anna Emory grew up the invisible, shy younger sister, and she prefers it that way. But when her father attempts to arrange an unsavory marriage, Anna learns that courage is sometimes found in adversity. Then she meets a boy and his father struggling in their relationship, and they tip her quiet world upside down.

Captain Mathieu Tudder has run from responsibility, entrusting his young son’s care to another and devoting his Sea Beggar ship to the Dutch Revolution. After that cause fails, Tudder returns to England for the son he left behind. But his son seems to have given his heart to a unknown and quiet lady—a woman who reminds him of all he’s ever loved and lost.

Will these two hearts—the battle-scarred and the broken—ever find true freedom?

My thoughts: I didn't realize just how much I would fall in love with Anna and her story when I picked this book up! Anna has found it easier to spend most of her time outdoors and out of her harsh father's way. When an arranged marriage forces her to follow in her sister's footsteps and flee the only home she has ever known, Anna must find her voice and learn to stand up for herself.
This is an excellent story! I fell in love with the characters. Those who have read Rachelle's previous series will enjoy reading more about those characters, but this also works as a stand alone story. I can't recommend this book enough!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your review, Amanda! I'm so glad you fell in love with Anna as I did! :)

    1. Thank you for inviting me to read her story! I already recommended it to my sister (who got it on KU)!

  2. As stated by Stanford Medical, It's indeed the one and ONLY reason women in this country live 10 years more and weigh on average 42 lbs less than we do.

    (And realistically, it is not about genetics or some secret-exercise and EVERYTHING related to "HOW" they are eating.)

    BTW, What I said is "HOW", and not "what"...
