Kurzbeschreibung

IN A TIME OF WAR, LOVE IS THE INSPIRATION.

With her brothers away fighting the Great War overseas, Livy Campbell desperately wants to help her family. Her chance comes when she meets a handsome stranger who lands her a job as a teacher in a place far from her parents' farm. But the war casts a long shadow over the German-American town that Livy now calls home-and the darkness will test everything she thought she knew about family and love . . .

More than anything, Friedrick Wagner wants to be part of his adopted country's struggle for peace. But when the bitter animosity between Germans and Americans soon turns citizens against newcomers, friend against friend, he will do whatever it takes to protect Livy from the hysteria that grips their town. As tragedy-and dark secrets from the past-threaten their future, Friedrick and Livy have one chance to stand up for what's right . . . and one chance to fight for their love.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The story moved at a slower pace, but I still loved it. 16. Juli 2014
Von Melanie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Hope At Dawn was a great read. I really liked the history and that this book was set during WWI (I haven't read many books in this time period).

The writing was fantastic. I really felt for the characters and all they had to go through - especially Friedrick. The romance story was sweet and I liked how the ending had closure.

Overall, I loved Hope At Dawn. The story moved at a slower pace, but I still loved it. A great book that made me learn new things about WWI and what life was like back then. I definitely recommend this book and I'm looking forward to this author's next book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Compelling read 29. Juni 2014
Von PSusan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Hope at Dawn is a story with endearing characters and a realistic WWI plot that that takes place in America. Stacy Henrie does a marvelous job giving us a snapshot of the bias faced by German Americans during this time. I could understand Livy’s first views since they would have probably mirrored my own if I had brothers fighting in the war. However, without being preachy, she has shown us the prejudices we have that need to be changed. As a German American, Fredrick is a true hero even if he is unable to fight for his country by his actions here at home.
The story line is realistic, I really like how history is woven into it. The characters have depth and bit by bit more of their complexity is revealed. Which leads to their romance, I liked how it progressed, distrust to friendship to love. It seemed to be the logical steps that they would have taken.
The writing was stunning in that it was as if I was seeing and experiencing these places and happenings. In a nutshell it is a wonderfully written book with a timeless theme by means of a WWI backdrop.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Engaging and Clean Story 25. Juni 2014
Von Kit-Kat75 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
First of all, this is a cover that I absolutely adore. It leaves a lot to the imagination, yet is really gorgeous. Next, I loved this story! I haven't read many books that take place during WWI. My great-grandfather fought in this war and passed away when I was really little. I don't know about many things that he experienced and the way life was then. This story made it really easy to picture how things were in my mind. I thought the writing was almost lyrical and the storyline was very engaging, with very likable characters.

Livy has always wanted to be a school teacher and when she gets a tip about a school, she jumps at the chance. I love the way she jumps right in, even though it isn't ideal and is hard work. She doesn't let the little prejudices deter her, nor does she let the big ones. I would be scared to death to teach in a school in an area with such strict laws. She does the best she can and is such a strong and determined woman, standing up for what's right any time she can.

I love Friedrick! He's so gentle and patient. I could feel the pain and embarrassment he had over not being able to serve his country. He's so willing to do whatever it takes to show his loyalty, even at the risk of putting his family in poverty. I love the way he sticks up for others, but does so in a very kind, persistent, understated way.

I thought the author did a fantastic job of weaving fiction with truth. I have ancestors who Americanized their surnames and now I understand why. I learned some things that I didn't realize before. I can't wait to see what's next--Ms. Henrie is definitely an author to watch!

Content:
language--none
violence--vague talk of war and death; threatening situations; a fight
romance--clean kissing
religious--mention of church, prayer, faith, but not preachy

5.0 von 5 Sternen Compelling and emotional story of the effects of WWI on German-Americans 9. Juli 2014
Von The Book Goddess - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What an interesting spin on the World War 1 historical-romance genre. This story takes place in Iowa during World War I, where we meet Livy and Friedrick. Livy meets Friedrick at a dance hall but doesn't catch his name...with a name like Friedrick Wagner...people tend to judge. This was a rough time in American history for German-Americans...which many probably never think about. I descend from German-Americans who emigrated to North Dakota in the late 1800's...and it never dawned on me to think about how they were treated as a people when the US went to war against Germany. My family lived in a primarily German area, where everyone spoke German. In this story, our town in Iowa has instilled language laws which forbids the speaking of German in public and on telephones, even, or one could face jail time. There was a paranoia and fear of the German-Americans that they may be spies or sympathizers. Our Livy comes to Friedrick's town to be the new school teacher, to primarily German children, and learns that judgement and bigotry goes both ways. The Germans were equally suspicious of her. Watching the friendship and romance blossom between Livy and Friedrick was wonderful and to watch how others reacted to their friendship was heart-breaking. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I learned that the next book in this series takes place in France between a soldier and a nurse. I can't wait.

Hope at Dawn is one book that will tug at your heart. I loved this World War I era novel. It is a great beginning to a series. I can't wait for book two to release. Stacy Henrie has great talent crafting true characters and creating a story with accurate historical detail.
This is a must read.
