"More than just a satisfying love story." Melissa Jagears, award winning Christian author

No matter how hard she tries to help, Rebekah Cummings always ends up causing more problems than she solves. This time, though, things will be different. She'll find a way to pay her family's debts, even if doing so requires leaving Eagle Harbor. Maybe then they'll start treating her as a capable woman who makes her own choices.

Gilbert Sinclair is going to marry an heiress. With his latest business venture sunk at the bottom of Lake Superior, he needs money to replace the steamship he lost, so he heads to Chicago where his father's business connections should land him a suitable wife. Like most things in his meticulously planned life, everything goes as expected--until he discovers Rebekah Cummings working as the new cook on his ship.

Rebekah well remembers the pain she endured the last time she tried trusting Gilbert, and Gilbert can't afford to pursue the love of a working class woman. But they can't stop the forgotten feelings swirling between them--or ignore the sacrifices they'd both have to make for a future together.

If you like Christian romance, small towns, and historical places that come alive on the page, then try Love's Sure Dawn.

About the Author

Naomi Rawlings is the author of seven historical Christian novels, including the Amazon bestselling Eagle Harbor Series. While she'd love to claim she spends her days huddled in front of her computer vigorously typing, in reality, she spends her time homeschooling, cleaning, picking up, and pretending like her house isn't in a constant state of chaos. She lives with her husband and three children in Michigan's rugged Upper Peninsula, along the southern shore of Lake Superior where they get 200 inches of snow every year, and where people still grow their own vegetables and cut down their own firewood--just like in the historical novels she writes.

As I read I feel like I have been placed in the book. When describing the scenes and weather, it almost like I can feel the breeze coming off the water. I felt so much emotion as o read about Aileen and Lindy. Ready to start the next book

We get to know Rebekah and Gilbert in the previous books in the Eagle Harbor series, and they are both difficult characters. I couldn't wait to see how their story would be told. After some humbling experiences in the previous book, Gilbert is forced to reevaluate his strategy on accomplishing his goal of building the crane he engineered. From an outside perspective, he seems selfishly bent on making this business venture successful at all costs, but as we learn about his real motivations his true character is revealed. Rebekah is a strong young woman, stubborn and desperate to prove to her family that she can contribute beyond what the norm is for women of the time. Even though she acts hardened and tough, she is still naive about many things. Her eyes are opened to more harshness and cruelty on her journey, yet her compassion makes a difference in the lives of those she reaches out to. The overall mood of the book is anxious since there is so much injustice in the lives of the characters, but the fighting spirits of Gilbert and Rebekah propel the story forward. The attraction between them is something they also fight against, but as they learn to turn to the Lord to direct their paths, they find that they are being led toward each other instead of apart. I was happy to see how things came together in the end, and already can't wait to read the next book! This is the third book in the Eagle Harbor Series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. However, we get to know the main characters and families in the previous books so I think they are best enjoyed being read in order. (I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions are my own)

What a great addition to Naomi Rawling's Eagle Harbor Series! Rawling's takes the life of George Sinclair and tells it beautifully! He's the typical rich kid who always got what he wanted except now that he's grown he doesn't just want to run to his father and ask for money to replace the ship and crane that he sunk in Eagle Harbor. He was raised to be selfish and demanding. Can he continue to be that that way as a grown man? A must read that includes the beautiful tom-girl Rebekah Cummings and all her not so conventional ways of getting things done in her life. I was provided a copy of this book by the author/publisher. All opinions in this review are my own.

In the third book in the Eagle Harbor Novel series, Love's Sure Dawn, the author develops the characters of Rebekah Cummings and Gilbert Sinclair. Gilbert is in search of an heiress to finance his follies. Gilbert's biggest interest is money, and he'll use anything and anyone to obtain the amount of money necessary to replace a sunken steamship and the crane he has invented and built. Rebekah seeks a way to help her family, struggling to make ends meet. Ms. Rawlings has created an unpredictable and compelling story of Gilbert and Rebekah. These characters are as different as night and day. Rebekah is developing into a strong and compassionate woman as Gilbert portrays a selfish, money driven man. Settings of Eagle Harbor and Chicago are well described, and life aboard ship on Lake Superior is depicted with both splendor and the perils of a well known killer lake. As the series develops I become more intrigued and involved in the stories of the inhabitants of Eagle Harbor, and the beauty and difficult times that are portrayed. A fast paced and deeply poignant story has once again left me wanting more. Don't miss any of the books in this series. The development of characters and events is impressive.

Rebekah has a strong will and a mind of her own. She wants to help provide for her family, but, to do that, she must take a job away from her family. The decisions that she makes may prevent her from finding her true love. Will she find happiness in her life and her romance? In this story, Naomi Rawlings brings the reader along as the characters make decisions and choices that may or may not be the right ones. Great story.

I really enjoyed this story and all the characters. This is the 3rd book in the Eagle Harbor series. I would recommend reading the first two in the series to really know what is going on with each of the characters. I received this ebook from the author for a fair and honest opinion.
