This Christmas, experience learning to trust alongside the Plain folk of Apple Ridge, Pennsylvania in this heart-warming tale of second chances.
Sadie enjoys her freedom away from home and her mission trips to Peru, but after four years, her Old Order Amish family insists it’s time to come home and settle down. Levi, a bachelor who distrusts women after a family heartbreak, also has no desire for romance. To keep their families from meddling in their lives, Sadie and Levi devise a plan—but soon discover that the walls around their hearts are breaking down. Can they let go of their prejudices, learn to trust each other, and embrace a future together?

My take on this book:
Four years ago Sadie Yoder caught her intended in the arms of another, it was at that time that her family thought it might be a good idea if she got away for awhile. That freedom isn't something that most Amish women have, but now she has come back home to settle down, but she is certain that most men aren't to be trusted. Levi has known heartbreak as well, and is just as leary of women as Sadie is of men. Sometimes though things don't always go as planned. Can these two wounded souls find happiness together?

"The Dawn of Christmas" is a short but satisfying read that reminds the reader of second chances. Sadie and Levi were a lot alike,both were protecting their hearts. I would have to say that this story is fairly predictable, but sometimes that is a good thing. As I read this story I realised that it was  actually a reprint of a story that was included in the "Christmas in Apple Ridge." Overall, a short sweet, yet predictable read that takes place during the holidays but could be read at any time of the year.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
