The Light at Dawn is a beautifully written, emotional, raw read that certainly evoked a lot of feelings from me. I think because the content for the storyline is so real, it is about things that have happened in real life and because of this I think it is easier for you to imagine what it must be like for the characters in those moments. I can’t say that I cried a lot during the book but it definitely made me emotional whilst reading it. I felt a real connection to the characters. Living in the UK I think it’s hard to ever imagine these things happening but sadly they do and it is definitely hard for me to understand being able to own a gun and the ease at which they can be purchased. I liked that the author took both sides of the argument and presented them in the story – it was definitely a very thought provoking story.
Alongside the storyline I really liked the characters, Angelia and Mark and cannot imagine the pain they suffered during this book. I enjoyed watching their friendship/relationship develop and overcoming the loss and sadness they go through.
The Light at Dawn is a story that will make you think, make you question what you think is right or wrong but it might also (like me) open your eyes to something that is very present in some countries and make you think about what may happen in the future.
