A volunteer for the newly established Weather Bureau, Sophie van Riijn needs access to the highest spot in her village to report the most accurate readings. Fascinated by Dierenpark, an abandoned mansion high atop a windswept cliff in the Hudson River Valley, Sophie knows no better option despite a lack of permission from the absent owners.
The first Vandermark to return to the area in sixty years, Quentin intends to put an end to the shadowy rumors about the property that has brought nothing but trouble upon his family. Ready to tear down the mansion, he is furious to discover a local woman has been trespassing on his land.
Instantly at odds, Quentin and Sophie find common ground when she is the only one who can reach his troubled son. There’s a light within Sophie that Quentin has never known, and a small spark of the hope that left him years ago begins to grow. But when the secrets of Dierenpark and the Vandermark family history are no longer content to stay in the past, will tragedy triumph or can their tenuous hope prevail?
Until the Dawn is Elizabeth’s Camden‘s newest book. I have devoured pretty much everything that Camden has written. I have always loved her attention to detail when it comes to all those pesky historical details.
I will say right off the start this book definitely had a different feel to it then most Camden books. I really can’t explain what it was, it just read different. But in this case different wasn’t bad but good.
I really liked the banter between Sophie and Quentin. Quentin makes so apologies about being an atheist and Sophie makes no apologies about being a firm believer in God. It made for some very interesting conversations.
I really liked the fact this wasn’t a typical Christian romance. Camden has a way of inserting real flaws into her characters that they have to overcome. Flaws that people can relate to and understand.
Camden is an author that can’t be missed. I have adored all her books and Until the Dawn is definitely one that I will be sharing. Looking forward to Camden’s next book.
