In Before Sunrise, Will Fortin of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is on patrol in southern Alberta. It’s a lonely region where the sky meets the land on even terms, where the landscape exaggerates or diminishes your place in the world. If you’re lucky, trouble would never find you there. If you weren’t, this was your battleground.
This is where Fortin experiences the worst any cop can face, the taking of innocent lives while under fire in responding to a violent call at a farm involving a gun. His life destroyed his guilt unbearable, Fortin, a good man, struggles as a haunted soul, aching to redeem himself.
Years after the shooting, Fortin is assigned to escort a murderer from a Canadian prison to trial in Seattle, Washington. When their plane crashes in the unforgiving Rocky Mountains, Fortin is presented with his last chance at redemption.
Before Sunrise is a powerful, heart-wrenching story of love, heartbreak, courage and enduring human spirit.

I really enjoyed the suspenseful reading in this story and it kept me reading to the very end and by that time it was 1 AM!!!!! I just could not put it down because I just had to see how all the individual stories were going to come together, Thanks for another good read.

I highly recommend this book. It grabbed my attention right from the first page and I could not read it fast enough to arrive at the unexpected ending. A thoughtful glimpse into the experiences of one police officer that mirrors what many police officers go through daily.

The story of RCMP Will Forten was heartbreaking. He want so much to atone for his error in killing those children with their father.

Actually 2 distinct stories running side by side that are linked at the end. Early on, it is fairly obvious how the stories will link and then conclude, but the telling is what makes this book great. The characters are all well developed and very real. Will definitely read more by this author.

Although God is not mentioned per se, this book demonstrates how our lives are interwoven with the lives of others into a beautiful tapestry and that God can use tragedy for good. Very good story with an even better underlying premise.
