The book is a clean read with religious content but it doesn't preach to its readers. The scenes between Lizzy and Ian are realistic. Jealousy and doubt almost derail their romance making readers feel anxious to learn if everything gets resolved. Will Jeffrey slide back into his old life? Will Lizzy learn to trust herself? Will Ian give up on Lizzie and find someone else to love? Rebekah Lyn is a talented writer who rounds out her characters and lets us know their faults as well as their love of God. Faith is important to the story but human nature plays a large role, too.
The romance between Lizzie and Ian begins to mature, but, is by no means, perfect. The couple learns the hard way that communication, honesty and transparency are just a few of the stepping stones towards true commitment. There are confrontations and conflicts the couple must work through, and at times it is very difficult. Jeffrey and Michelle bring their own side stories into the mix, adding interest into the overall plot and theme. Can all of them find a way to say what they truly feel and mean?
Rebekah Lyn`s excellent skill with words and character development show us that all of them must learn that sometimes a "new dawn" comes only after a time of testing and trust. True to her earlier writing style the author has woven courage, hope and inspiration into Spring Dawn`s pages, with a few surprises along the way. Be sure to add Spring Dawn to your reading list and enjoy!
In looking back over the scope of the books I've read so far in this series, I could see a pattern. The first book was a book of disasters where many people were thrown together in an effort to survive the season's group of hurricanes. Our five main characters meet under different conditions and in different capacities. The second book was a book of mystery and adventure where Ms. Lyn's readers become better acquainted with the friends. This third book is a book of testing: testing character, testing resolves, and testing relationships. An example of this is in the development of Ian and Lizzie's relationship. In the second book, the reader may conclude that their relationship was on solid ground. Yet this third book creates uncertainty, tests their stability as a couple and stretches each one individually. That makes for very good reading.
Lizzie begins to put distance between herself and Ian, while simultaneously drawing closer to Jeffrey, especially after his car accident. Ian becomes jealous of Jeffrey when he finds out about this. Michelle, too, feels some envy at Jeffrey and Lizzie's easy camaraderie. Ian is already frustrated with the slow growth of his design business. He begins to wonder if Lizzie is the girl for him to settle down with. Lizzie is not aware of these undercurrents. She is battling her own fears about falling back into her past lifestyle which she has kept hidden from Ian.
After going through a hair-raising experience in the second book, Michelle feels much less secure in the current book. She's dissatisfied with life, leans a little more on her friend Jeffrey for friendship while at the same time nothing seems to go her way. This subplot left me yearning for some type of resolution for her.
Jeffrey shares the limelight with Ian and Lizzie. After the events of the second book, Jeffrey resolves to stay closer to God, stay dry and away from former relationships that could lure him back to his old ways. He spends a little more time with Stephen. At the same time, he also resolves to reach out to Michelle in an effort to "be Jesus" to her. Of course, most of these resolutions are tested repeatedly, creating a sense of mystery about his relationship with Michelle. His accident temporarily takes him out of Michelle's sphere and into the care of his parents. Happily this gives him an opportunity to gain some peace with them.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series so far. Rebekah Lyn's writing style pulls us into the details of friendships and leads us to care for each of the five friends. The pace of this third book is slower than the previous books, which seems to be intentional in order to develop the tangled web of events, tests, and character development. If you enjoy delving into the details of life, watching how people going through life without God learn about Him and reach out to Him when others are not accessible, then you will enjoy this book.
Additional note: The fourth book in this series is soon to be released. Look for a December wedding!
