Critically acclaimed author Kathryn Cushman explores difficult social issues. Here, she tackles the child vaccination debate in a gripping portrait of life’s uncertainties. At her sister’s insistence, Grace Graham returns to backwoods Shoal Creek, Tennessee, with her four-year-old son in tow. As Grace struggles to reconnect with her estranged father, her unvaccinated son becomes ground-zero for a measles outbreak. But should she take her son and run—or stay and help?

“Cushman crafts strong characters …” (Romantic Times Book Reviews)
I don't know, actually. This is the first book I listened to that I hadn't read yet! I'm very glad that I did!
There is nothing to compare it to!! I read mostly historical romances, and this was a (happy!) break from the norm.
The wonderful southern accents. Even though I live in a southern state, I wouldn't have read the book the same way she acted it out. I loved how in the parts that the main character became emotional, her Californian accent slipped a bit and incorporated a bit of 'southern'. It was just a brilliant performance all around.
I listened to this book mostly at work, leaving the last few hours (due to happenstance) to listen to at home. I am so glad I didn't hear the climax while at work-- If I had, I would have been very embarrassed. I was BAWLING at the climax, tears streaming down my face as I listened. It was a really great part of the story and one I want to go back and listen to again just because.
I got this audio book on a whim because I had read one of her other books (Going Amish). This book, Another Dawn, is so much deeper than the summary would have you think. It's a story of hurt, trouble, forgiveness, and love, all the while teaching you something. It laid bare the facts of a huge argument aroused by event in the book, and let you fairly see all the sides. It did have romance in it, but it's not the main focus of the story.If this story doesn't have you bawling in tears by the end of it, I'd be surprised. I loved this book and am VERY glad I got it!
