Publisher's Summary

Two women. One secret. A heart-breaking choice.

Skye, 1903. Jessie, the young daughter of a local midwife, is determined to become a nurse one day, but family loss and heartache jeopardise her dreams. Isabel, the doctor's daughter, is planning to follow in her father's footsteps - even though medicine is not considered a fitting career for a woman. And then there's Archie, Jessie's older brother, whom Isabel just can't stay away from. After an unsettling encounter in the woods, Archie disappears, and all their lives are irrevocably changed...

Years later, Isabel is a qualified doctor and Jessie is a nurse and when their paths cross again, neither is certain what the other woman knows about that fateful day. But when war breaks out and they find themselves working shoulder to shoulder, they have no option but to confront all they have kept hidden.

Taking in Skye and Edinburgh, France and Serbia, When the Dawn Breaks is a sweeping wartime story of two determined women and the dark secret that will bind them forever...

    Story
    "Lovely war time story."
    Would you consider the audio edition of When the Dawn Breaks to be better than the print version?

    Audio was very good, loved the characters and narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jessie. She was determined, kind loving and throughout her life she was just a woman whom reached her dream even though she came from a poor family with their own struggles.


    What does Jane MacFarlane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I thought she narrated all yhe characters to life. Each had their own voices so you knew who was who early on. The way she reads is brilliant, sadness, laughter etc all brought the book to life. You felt you knew everyone. Very good.
