BOOK REVIEW: Dawn Comes Early

Dawn Comes Early
By: Margaret Brownley
Published by Thomas Nelson, Inc.

Now, this is my kind of woman!  Kate Tenney is a girl with a good dose of determination, who fights for what she is after even when the odds are stacked against her.  And...she gets herself into so many laughable situations!  All in the name of proving herself worthy of becoming the heiress to Last Chance Ranch.  A ranch located in Arizona Territory, a very hot, ugly, dry area of the country.  Cactus that jumps up and literally bites you in the backside.  Dust storms.  Miserable heat.  Cattle rustlers.  Even a real, live local outlaw!  What is a girl to do?  Especially a girl with no experience except that she has written dime novels (one BANNED!) about being a rancher.  But Kate slowly grows to love the land and finds that there is beauty in the desert.  Not only in the desert of Arizona Territory, but beauty can also come out of the desert of the soul.  

Set in the late 1800s, Dawn Comes Early by Margaret Brownley is full of laughs and good clean fun.  Mrs. Brownley presents her heroine as a down-to-earth young woman who thinks she can do anything.  A woman who has a lot of drive and determination, even when some of the requirements for becoming the heiress of the ranch conflict with some of her newly awakened longings.  Woven through the book is the beautiful story of God's love and care.  Kate comes to realize that God is dependable, the only One in Whom she needs to place her faith and trust.
