The Light at DawnThe Light at Dawn by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Light At Dawn is an outstanding 5 star read by K.L. Montgomery that will drag you through every emotion possible. I must advise to have a good supply of tissues handy when you read this book as it is heart-breaking in parts.
Married mother of 3 Angelia White goes through one of those incidents which every parent must dread. That call to say that there is a shooter in their child’s school. Then the heart break of discovering that her beloved 9 year old son Evan is one of the shooter’s victims.
5 years on, now divorced Angelia is an advocate for gun control who speaks at rallies about losing her son. At a rally she meets Mark Lyon, a man with totally opposing views who believes that people have the right to own to own a gun. Despite their opposing views there is an attraction between the 2 which results in a one night stand.
When Mark’s daughter Ashleigh is then cruelly gunned down and killed at school by her ex-boyfriend, Mark’s life crumbles and he begins to question his beliefs. But fate has something else in mind for Mark and Angelia. A new life to look forward to and possibly a future together?
This book contains scenes which are very upsetting but the author does a fantastic job of dealing with these issues in a very sensitive manner. She does not take sides in the gun control debate but shows both sides of the debate, allowing the reader to make their own choices. As someone who lives in the UK where school shootings are not the issue that they are in the US, I have to honestly say that I couldn’t begin to comprehend the worry that parents have regarding their children’s safety in relation to gun control in schools.
