“Shine Like the Dawn” by Carrie Turansky

Carrie Turansky has written “Shine Like the Dawn”, a novel set in Edwardian England.  Margaret Lounsbury and her little sister Violet are living with their grandmother and working in her milliner’s shop.  They have been there ever since the deaths of their parents and sister in a drowning accident.  Margaret’s father was the gardening architect for Morningside Manor and had been there for many years.  Margaret and the lord’s son were very close and after the tragedy, Nate had not contacted Margaret nor gone to the funerals.  She was very bitter at this slight.  When Nate returned to the village upon being summoned because his father was dying, he was determined to reestablish himself with Margaret.  However, sinister activities were occurring at the Manor  which force Nate and Margaret to find out what is going on and whom to trust.  There is also speculation that the boating accident that claimed Margaret’s and Violet’s family was not an accident.

I enjoyed reading this novel and would recommend highly.

I was provided with a complimentary print copy of this book by Blogging for Books in return for an honest review.
