The main characters are likable and very easy to relate to. The story line is interesting, as a baby boomer of German decent, I found the story particularly interesting for the discrimination that was shown to German-Americans. It was an excellent read.
Hope at Dawn is set during The Great War, World War I as it came to be known. Livy is a young woman trying to make her way in a world turned on edge by war and limited opportunities for women at that time. She secures a teaching job in Hilden, a town several hours distance from her family. She becomes friends with the young man, Friedrick, who is the janitor and caretaker of the school who has not had to go to war because he is the provider for his family and takes care of the family farm.
Livy loves her job but is concerned by the prejudice shown the German citizens and students of Hilden - among which is Friedrick and his family. This prejudice stems from fear created by the war with Germany and leads to altercations with neighbors and business owners. It eventually leads to violence that Livy and Friedrick are caught in the middle of.
There is so much good to say about this book. the detail to history is great and eye-opening. we see how easily fear causes people to become irrational and suspicious - and mean. The romance between Liv and Friedrick is really sweet and its fun to see how they grow together and stand by each other. I really liked the pacing and message behind the story and the glimpse it gives us of what life was like for Americans during the early 1900's. This wasn't just an entertaining read - it was an educating and informative one. I totally enjoyed every word and can't wait for the rest of the series.
Livy Campbell takes a position as a teacher far from from her home and family. Thankfully, she finds a friend in Friedrick Wagner, the school maintenance man. In spite of protests from board members, Livy can't help but have a relationship with the kind and dedicated family man. With both their livelihoods at stake, they must decide whether love and country are worth the risk to their hearts and their families.
Each page of Hope at Dawn is fraught with tension and romance. There is certainly more than one hold-your-breath, moment for both Livy and Friedrick. Everything wrapped up nicely in spite of the bumps in the road, but things were left open for a few of the characters. I love Maria and want her to have her own little bit of happiness! Tie up those loose ends where she is concerned in this series, Ms. Henrie! Pretty please. ;-) Other than that, Hope at Dawn is gentle, sweet, and just what I needed to read in order to unwind this past weekend. A winner!
