Book Description

“The darkest part of a night is just before dawn.” This was the hardest lesson Sabrina Richards had to learn. After the untimely death of her twin brother, and a series of life’s bitter blows, she finds and puts her total trust in Eric, the love of her life. But, her new life would come crashing down when she discovers her handsome, successful fiancé was having an affair with her best friend Niqi, just months away from the wedding.

Night Before Dawn is an inspiring novel about a young woman’s struggle to find peace in the center of tragedy, new life in the midst of loss, and forgiveness in the heart of betrayal.

Night Before Dawn is an awe-inspiring book that will encourage everyone who reads it. It quickly grabs you and refuses to let go. The pace of this book flows as free as water. Everyone in this world has someone they need to forgive, and an alarming number of young women are facing the very same struggles in which Sabrina, the protagonist, finds herself. This book is going to change and save lives. --Timothy bond

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutley Fabulous!!! May 14, 2008
Format:Perfect Paperback
THIS IS A FANTASTIC BOOK. I finished it in 2 days! Went to bed late woke up with burning eyes but it was worth it. It played on all of my emotions, at some points I laughed, was infuriated, near tears and in the end overwhelmed with joy. It was wonderfully written and even provoked thoughts about your own life and decisions. I would definitely recommend this book. It speaks volumes to everyone especially those that are brokenhearted. It lets you know that there is a light at the end of the dark tunnel. I LOVED IT!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ready to Re-Read this Book!! June 5, 2008
Format:Perfect Paperback
Night before Dawn is not an ordinary read, its a book that captivates you, and takes you on this journey that you actually believe your the main character 'Sabrina'. There are numerous life lessons that the author profoundly embeds within the pages of Sabrina's story. The book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. I laughed and cried through out the book. Its a book of forgiveness, hope and second chances. It allowed me to reflect on my life, and showed me that there is a 'Sabrina' in every one of us. We all go through challenges, but in the end we will know that the Night had to come before Dawn!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Most inspiring March 15, 2010
By Frost
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was pulled into this story and could not get away and I was shocked that it happen to me. This is a most unusual love story that encompasses all loves including family, friends, acquaintences and romantic love. I never felt so many emotions in one book and even found some that I had lost.

This book will empty you out and then fill you back up with new hope and love.

I would recommended it to Oprah.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not put it down February 10, 2009
Format:Perfect Paperback
I was so captivated by this novel that it took me only a couple of days to read it. I couldn't put it down. I would read it on the train, at the gym or curled up on my sofa.

The author breathes life into these characters, giving them much depth. It is a story of unconditional love, hope, faith and some of the hardest challenges we face in life. It reinforces the endless possibilities of what God can do in any circumstance.

I definitely recommend this book for your reading pleasures. You too will find it hard to put down.

When you are Down to nothing ... God is up to something. This was the best Christmas gift ever.Thank you Minister Travis Allen. You introduced me to the Dawn series.
I had to finish the book in one go .. i still took 3 weeks as in between my readings i spent a lot of time in retrospect.
Rochelle your writing is so easy , so fluid like you are talking to me . I spend most of my time reading technical , mystery or classics... your book just touched my heart.
I was in a similar phase being betrayed by my so called BFFs and was eager to know how did you forgive. Forgiveness isnt too easy. specially when you see the person daily. The Hows and Whats consumed most of my time , energy and happiness making me sad... resorting to God was the only way out.God has the answer to all my questions and misery .... I read the sequel too and though it was a bit of a drag in between but realistic. I cant imagine how you would have felt "letting go" ... Miraculous .... right !?!

Keep writing ... ill continue reading :) Amen !

5.0 out of 5 stars Find your dawn June 6, 2008
Format:Perfect Paperback
This is an amazing novel; I was able to finish it in less than a week of receiving it. I don't read a lot of fictional novels, but one of the reasons I loved this one is because the life stories of many women is depicted in Sabrina's life. It shows that even though someone may have it all together on the outside, they could still be hurting on the inside seeking guidance and examples to look to. It also shows that there is hope in any situation regardless of how it may appear. It was funny, emotional, caused you to reflect on your life and encourages you to never give up in any situation. Also, as a movie lover, I enjoyed the humorous references the author made towards several movies throughout the novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't hate it, but wouldn't re-read. November 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
It was okay. The writing pace was somewhat stilted and it seemed as if the author was telling rather than showing growth in the characters. The word choice seemed odd sometimes for a Christian book. I would not buy the book and probably would not read it again. I recommend borrowing the book from a library or someone else who owns it to test drive this one before buying. This author is definitely not on my "must read" list, but everyone looks for different things in a reading experience.

"Night before Dawn" is a great read that both inspires and entertains. I am definately looking forward to the second novel from this author. You won't be disappointed! Buy a copy for yourself and gift it to your friends and family. This book is an easy read that you won't be able to put down once you start. Great for all age groups especially young women who have lost their way. A must buy, kudos to the author.
