The Light at Dawn by K.L. Montgomery was a raw emotional read that will get you in all the feels. This book requires tissues and ice cream.
Not my first read by this author, so I knew going in that the writing would be top shelf. This book blew me out of the water and it got me so hard in the feels that my eyes wouldn’t stop leeking.
I absolutely sincerely loved this book, school shootings always get me. As a Canadian I have the luxury that the anomaly of a school shooting is its something that hardly ever happens here. When I see them on the news it breaks my heart, so for the first part of the book, I was in tears. I had to take a break, just so I could get through the rest of the book.
I will say that some parts were predictable but it didn’t make me like it less. There’s a solid message in there that isn’t one or the other. Compromising together could have a better outcome than just going to one extreme. So the whole ending of the book, I absolutely adored.
The romance is a beautiful story, I love the progression of the main characters as the story went on. I also loved how the main story took place over about a year. It made the relationship that much more believable especially at the end.
This book is a must read, so please take my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval, that this book will rip out your heart and put it back together, rip it out again before the light of dawn rises… (see what I did there?).
