Wake the Dawn
I have read many of Lauraine Snellings book. However this one had a good story line but about 20 pages into the book, there is some profanity in it. As a christian writer I feel she should be above reproach in her writing. It should help someone come to Christ, not be the same after reading it. Think on things that are pure, lovely, and most of all things from above.

I have read many of Lauraine Snelling's books and they were all mostly good, but Wake the Dawn was terrible! I had barely gotten to page 20 before they used bad language! This is supposed to be a Christian book! I would not recommend this book to anyone.

book has curse words
I think I have read all of her books and enjoyed all. but, I find this one offensive because of the curse words used. I know people curse but saying he/she cursed is sufficient rather than "take me to where you keep your drugs, b****! (on page 130)there are other places too. I'm not sure I will finish it!

A Brutal Storm, An Abandoned Baby Adventure & Roma
Lauraine Snelling in her new book, Ã¢ÂÂWake The DawnÃ¢ÂÂ published by FaithWords brings us into the lives of Ben James and Esther Hanson.
From the back cover: In the remote town of Pineville, Minnesota, folks associate U.S. Border Patrol agent Ben James with his days of high school football gloryÃ¢ÂÂnot with the shell-of-himself the young widower has become. Since an accident claimed the life of his wife two years earlier, Ben has been seeking comfort in the bottle but never on duty. When BenÃ¢ÂÂs canine partner Bo finds an infant lying under a bush near the Canadian border just as a hurricane force storm hits, Ben must rush the child safely to town.
The only medical facility in Pineville is a small outpatient clinic run by PhysicianÃ¢ÂÂs Assistant Esther Hanson. As the storm rages, Esther struggles to hide symptoms of her secret emotional battle from the caring members of the communityÃ¢ÂÂincluding Ben, and the townÃ¢ÂÂs volunteer EMTÃ¢ÂÂs who work to assist her until the last critical patient is airlifted to the regional hospital. As the weather finally clears and the town begins to deal with the horrendous devastation, Esther and Ben must find the courage to wake the dawn and live in the light of day.
A hurricane force storm, an abandoned baby, an overextended outpatient clinic and two individuals with issues that are overwhelming them! This is the recipe that Lauraine Snelling has created for us in Ã¢ÂÂWake The DawnÃ¢ÂÂ. The late Producer/Director Irwin Allen used to give us movies with plots like this and if he was around today I am sure he would be turning this book into one of his films. Ben James is still devastated by the death of his wife and is slowly sinking into the bottle. Esther Hansen isnÃ¢ÂÂt even a doctor but the demands placed on her are the equivalent and are costing her a great deal emotionally. These two must work out their past issues in order to deal with the present and embrace the future. Danger, action and adventure are all rolled up in a very exciting read. On top of all of this there is the romance. These are wonderful characters that live and breathe on the pages and you care deeply for them. This book does not disappoint at all. I enjoyed it and I am sure you will also.
