Kathryn Cushman's Waiting for Daybreak ~ Reviewed
Waiting for Daybreak
By Kathryn Cushman
Published by Bethany House
Two women. How far will they go to protect their dreams for tomorrow?
Paige Woodward is out of options ... so when a dream opportunity arises at a brand-new pharmacy, Paige chooses to keep quiet about her past to ensure she'll land the job. After all, she needs the money to pay for the treatment that can save her mother's life.
Clarissa Richardson feels alone. She wants desperately to honor the memory of her grandmother by running a successful pharmacy ... but that vision comes to a screeching halt when her grandfather hires Paige, the too-perfect new girl who seems to be hiding something.
Today seems dark and painful, but every tomorrow brings the hope of something new. If they can just keep waiting for daybreak.
Kathryn Cushman set herself a paradigm with A Promise to Remember and hasn't disappointed with Waiting for Daybreak. Deep, complex characters are fast becoming Cushman's trademark. Paige and Clarissa drew emotional responses from me like few books do. Even the secondary characters are fascinating. Combine those with a riveting storyline and you have a novel you'll not put down until you turn the last page. Novel Reviews and I give it our highest recommendation: a 5-star read!
