"As I read First Dawn, I was warped back in time to 1877 Kansas. Ms. Miller captured the dialect, culture, sights, smells, and sounds of the time period expertly. The plot rolled smoothly and characters became real. This is the first book by Judith Miller I have read, and definitely not my last."
"Juaith Miller has done a masterful job of capturing the mood, dialogue, and setting of this period of history on the plainns of Kansas. The rich characterizations and moving dialogue combine with a fascinating story of changed lives with a constant reliance on faith and trust in God. This combination provides the reader with a remarkable reading experience and something highly recommended."

My big complaint is the ending. Nothing is resolved, at all. It just ends. I should have had an inkling that this would be the case, since all throughout the book any impediment or plot twist was wrapped up too easily and abruptly.
I'm curious to read the second in the series, at least to find out how things were wrapped up but I don't think I'll be running out to buy it. Overall a bland and predictable story, and a disappointment.
They reach factory town Pullman, Illinois where the prime factory is and those who work for the company of the same name live. Under Charlotte's direction, Olivia hides her past and obtains work as an assistant chef at the Florence. One lie leads to another and soon Olivia feels engulfed in the well meaning Charlotte's web of deceit as she falls in love with sincere town manager Samuel Howard.
This is an interesting historical tale that brings to life a company town through the deep support cast and the reactions of the two female English newcomers to Pullman. Olivia is a delightful protagonist who detests the mendacious background that necessity being the mother of invention has forced her and Charlotte to create. Readers will appreciate this Postcards from Pullman tale as Judith Miller vividly brings to life late nineteenth century Americana.
