Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Cushman (Leaving Yesterday) creates a highly flawed heroine in Grace Graham, who returns to her small hometown of Shoal Creek, Tenn., after being entreated by her sister to pull some family duty by staying with their father, whom Grace dislikes, after he has surgery. Grace's belief in an all-natural lifestyle includes her refusal to vaccinate her four-year-old son, Dylan, who contracts measles shortly after he and his mother arrive in Tennessee. Grace then comes to see the consequences of many of her choices. This ripped-from-the-headlines, issue-driven narrative has a few problems. Much of the tension in the story comes from the progress of illness in children, so the pace can drag. Minor character Mrs. Fellows is a bit too obvious with her Sunday School story. Women who don't dote on young children won't find this story very compelling, but it will resonate for the audience of mothers whose lives are child centered. (Feb.)

From Booklist

Cushman, author of Leaving Yesterday (2009), offers a contemporary Christian coming-of-age novel. Grace has a bad habit of relying only on herself and of running away from problems, although she has always tried to be a good mother to four-year-old Dylan. She long ago decided the risks of vaccination against measles outweighed the benefits after seeing her good friend Jasmine struggle to raise an autistic child. Reluctantly responding to her older sister’s pleas for assistance when their father needs knee surgery, Grace returns to her Tennessee hometown, only to be devastated when Dylan, her beloved niece, and several other infants in the church nursery fall seriously ill. When her boss in California needs her, too, Grace has some hard decisions to make, and very much needs the help of a few understanding true believers. --Lynne Welch

I know it's a good book when I read it in one afternoon. I started "Another Dawn" mid-afternoon and finished it that night.
I thought this book had an interesting premise. A mother, who refused the vaccinations for his son, is faced with what her choice could possibly have done to her hometown. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading. I stand on the opposite side of the vaccine debate- the side of Grace. Would the novel preach an agenda? And just how would this tie into a plot line?
Instead of making this agenda driven fiction, it became a type of "character" to the novel. The vaccine debate became external conflict, emotional angst and played against everything Grace has been her entire life long. To watch this character grow and change was nothing short of great writing. Her actions, the actions of those around her, I can promise I will read this book again... and again.
What I loved so much about it, is it goes beyond the superficial to dig deep into the heart of the issues. The relationships are especially profound.
This book offers more than just a well placed subject on a tired debate, it is a story filled with fulfilling characters, a succinct plot, great dialogue, and a satisfying ending. I think you'll sigh with pleasure when you close this book- I did.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review through CFBA

Oh where to begin on this one? I am still very much on the fence! In the book, we meet Grace, a mother who would probably be labeled as 'crunchy', 'granola', etc. After meeting her boss's son Collin, a young boy with autism, who had regressed immediately after vaccinations, Grace, like many, chose not to vaccinate her own son. After returning to her hometown in Tennessee, her son ends up with measles, putting himself as well as many children he came in contact with, not yet old enough for the MMR vaccine, at risk. This was not at all what I was expecting from the publisher's description!

As a mom to a child with autism, this is a subject that hits very close to home. Let me be clear, my son is up to date currently on his vaccines, including the MMR, though it was not without much debate with his doctor. Having a family history of autism, I did not want to take chances with my son, but in the end his doctor and I agreed that the vaccine itself was not the cause but did perhaps trigger something in some kids that was already there. I chose to go ahead with the vaccination. It was not an immediate regression for my son, and I do not believe that HIS autism was caused by this vaccine. Looking back, there were already red flags that we never realized. However, that being said, I also personally know mothers in the autism community who DID see an immediate regression after receiving vaccinations and they know without a doubt in their hearts that the vaccine triggered something in their child. I have no reason to doubt them. I say all of this so you know where I am coming from and how it affects my view on the subject matter on the book.

I am still on the fence with this book. It was not at all what I expected and wasn't at all like I thought it would be from reading the back of the book. Grace Graham is a 25 year old woman who has made many mistakes in her life- her mother died when she was in college, she had an unexpected pregnancy and the father walked out on her, and she has more family problems that I could count. The story follows Grace as she travels home to Tennessee to take care of her father after he had surgery. What happens while she is at home, though- is another story. No really, a completely different story than what is described. (I will pause here in case you do not want to read spoilers.)

Grace was "bullied" into a group of moms in California into not getting her child vaccinated. These moms, curiously enough, are moms who have autistic children. So the story progresses and her son contracts measles- and then passes it to the entire town- which is bad b/c measles can be deadly for babies. Grace is put through the ringer by the entire town by for being so "stupid" for not vaccinating her child- she apparently didn't think about the "consequences."

This was a very engaging story. As a mom, I wanted to keep reading to make sure that the kids would end up ok. I didn't, however, enjoy the strong take that the author took on the vaccination subject. I absolutely understand that this is personal so her- I believe she had a child who had measles. I am not arguing her points for vaccinating- I am, however, dissappointed with how she treated the moms who chose not to vaccinate. She pretty much labeled them as tree hugging idiots. I am not sure if this is because she had a bad experience or because she has never known a child with autism.

This book tried to present itself as "fair and balanced" by presenting two sides of the vaccination debate.

The book did this thusly: Grace is a quitter. Grace blames her father for something that isn't really his fault. Grace always runs away when things get tough. Grace has just broken up with her nice fiancée because she is irrational. Grace runs away from a tough situation in California to help out back home. Grace helping out is really just justification for her running away....oh...by the way Grace is anti-vaccine and her son contracts measles and passes it on to six babies who weren't old enough to be vaccinated by their church-going parents who surely would have vaccinated.

Grace's niece gets sick and unlike Grace's son who bounces back with at-home treatment, the baby has to go to the hospital be surrounded by tubes and wires and have a suction device rammed down her throat. Her poor mother is so sick with worry.

Grace thinks about running away again.

Fair and balanced, eh? And...oh...by the way. The author is a pharmacist. No conflict there.

I don't like being steered by a book, and if that aspect of the volume was discussed more thoroughly on the back cover or the review blurb, I would not have selected this book to review. I don't want to read manifestos, and I appreciate developed main characters - not patsys for an ideal.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this volume.
