Overview

For Lieutenant Samantha 'Sammy' Yates, leaving the Marines wasn't an option she ever wanted. Forced out of the service because of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, she tries to move on with her life-- putting up a good facade to those who don't know her very well. Alone, however; she is plagued with battle scars she can't shake even two years after her tour.

When successful psychiatrist, Sara Lawson, decided to move back to the only place she ever felt safe, the last thing she had on her mind was falling in love. Deciding to renovate the home she inherited from her grandmother, she crosses paths with Sammy, who is now working as a contractor. Sara spots something kindred in the woman's hardened, but kind blue eyes.

Each hiding their own secrets in the small Florida town, they both realize that the walls they had spent years perfecting have started to crack around one another. As they slowly build a friendship, can they keep each other safe from the danger that is speeding towards them?

Please note: this book is in paperback as well. However, the paperback linked to this page is from a 3rd party seller. If you look on amazon the book is being sold by them, for me at its normal price of $19.99. Please do not get ripped off by the other sellers. Thanks in advance and I hope you love my book!

Stephanie,
I want to thank you for a well written amazing book. I served in Afghanistan as an MP in the army. This book touched home for me. You captured the story of the soldier better than any I've read. Thank you again for this amazing story.

You already have reviews that have touched beautifully on the heart of this book. I couldn't put it down. I felt for each one of those hero's for what they lived through. What is heartbreaking is that there really are people each and every day that truly live that. I laughed, wanted to reached through and smack a person or two, cry and cheer. You wanted them to be a survivor. Good job Stephanie.

This is a beautifully written story that touched my heart and soul. I wont provide a blurb in this review as the one on the back of the book, provided by the Author, is accurate.
As a sufferer of PTSD, I was able to relate to Sammy's journey. I found the story to be accurate and freeing.
I purchased this eBook when it was offered for free and would have gladly payed $10 for the experience of reading this story.
Sammy and Sara are wonderful characters who are well developed. Their lov

"After The Dawn" is a moving story about an ex marines' struggle with PTSD.
But it's also about learning to forgive and allowing oneself to love again.
Sammy emotionally shuts down after a traumatic incident while she was serving her 3rd tour in Iraq.She's been through her own personal hell and sees no way out.
Sara wants to hire Sammy to renovate her dilapidated house but the 2 of them see things very differently.
