Coming to a new country is difficult for everyone, but for German immigrant Mabel Krause, coming to America is about to get a whole lot harder...

With her brother facing trial for a murder he didn't commit, Mabel needs a lawyer who can help prove her brother's innocence. The only trouble is, she can't afford one. Good things there's a law student in town who's making a name for himself by helping the unfortunate. Now if she can just convince him to help her brother...

Hiram Cummings needs money to return to law school, and the fastest way to earn it is by working as a legal clerk for the powerful and rich Rhett Vandergriff. When a desperate immigrant comes to him for help, he knows he should refuse her. He can't afford to take on charity cases when he needs money himself.

Yet Hiram was raised knowing the importance of doing right and living his faith. His commitment to justice and integrity means he can't quite bring himself to turn away from Mabel, and Hiram soon finds himself on a mission to prove a man's innocence.

But all is not as it appears, and Hiram soon learns that not only is his job at risk, but he's also in danger of losing his heart--if he and Mabel don't lose their lives first.

A prequel to the reader-favorite Eagle Harbor Series, Love's Violet Sunrise offers a compelling story about trials, love, and the sacrifices we sometimes need to make in order to keep what truly matters.

About the Author

Naomi Rawlings is the author of over a dozen historical Christian novels, including the beloved 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.

I read all of the books in the Eagle Harbor series before reading "Love's Violet Sunrise". At first I hesitated to purchase it since it was only 100 pages. However, I'm glad that I did purchase it. The plot is intriguing and well thought out, and the characters (Hiram and Mabel) are realistic and set a high moral standard. I couldn't put this book down and wish it was much, much longer!

Beware, this book will hook you and reel you in. Fall in love with the people of the small town of Eagle Harbor And then just as your reaching the end. You get to go on and enjoy another book, getting to know additional characters, while keeping up with the ones you already know. My husband kept asking me if I was still reading the same book. Nope I got three while series. Thank you Naomi Rawlings.

The spiritual content in the Eagle Harbor and American State Flower Novella, Love’s Violet Sunrise by Naomi Rawlings is beautifully integrated, making the story inspiring and meaningful to readers. The two main characters, Hiram Cummings and Mabel Krause strive to secure the release of Dietrich, Mabel’s brother from jail by convicting the culprit who got him arrested on a false charge. This faith-based book by best-selling author, Naomi Rawlings has wide-spread appeal. The well-developed characters, intriguing storylines and surprise plot twists create a beautiful and captivating tale of enduring love that triumphs at all costs.

Love's Violet Sunrise by Naomi Rawlings Eagle Harbor Series Book 0.5 Hiram Cummings' dream is to be a lawyer. And if he needs to earn that money by working in what used to be a closet—a hot and stuffy closet—and listen to men complaining about the unfairness of his boss all day, so be it. Maybe things didn't seem right with his boss, but he needed to finish law school. To help people like the woman begging for his help. Mabel Klause needed to get Hiram to help her. A friend told her he would. So she wouldn't give up. Her brother and their friends were being falsely accused of a crime and this man was the only one who could help them. Being a Godly man, Hiram did what he felt was right. And as in real life, we never know what plans God has for us when we listen to Him and follow in the paths He directs us. Often those paths can lead to so much more than we could have planned on. Great story, and it looks to be the beginning of a really good series.

This story and the characters, just drew me in and I didn't look up until I was done! This book may only be 108 pages but it moves along quickly searching for justice for the immigrants and the accused. Arson, murder, suspense, and yes.. a sweet romance! I'd certainly recommend this novella..

This was a very nicely written novella. I have read the Eagle Harbor series that this story is a prequel to, and I never would have guessed that Hiram and Mabel’s love story began this way, based on what I had read about them! It gave some interesting background. Being a novella, things had to move at a much quicker pace than a full-length novel, however, I still felt very connected to these two characters. There was plenty of trouble for them to deal with and that made for an interesting story. The development of Hiram and Mabel’s romance was great! There was a lot of chemistry between those two. I loved the way the author ended the novella, as well. It left me with a very happy feeling. Short and sweet and oh, so enjoyable! I received a complimentary copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.

Naomi Rawlings has a gift for writing strong characters who are confronted by seemingly impossible circumstances yet manage to persevere by seeking God's will and following it. I admired Mabel's tenacity in not giving up when rejected over and over. Her determination compels Hiram to recognize that his integrity took precedence over his job and dreams for the future and he could not allow her to fend for herself. The story is suspenseful as powerful men pursue them while they are trying to solve the crime in order to free Mabel's brother. They bond during the time they spend working together and the romance that blossoms is quick but sweet. This is a wonderful beginning to a series I enjoyed reading and it made me want to go read all the books again :) (I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions expressed are my own)

Love's Violet Sunrise, written by Naomi Rawlings, is the prequel to the Eagle Harbor Series which I have thoroughly enjoyed and was not at all surprised to be thrilled with this prequel! This is the story of Hiram and Mabel...thirty years before the series. Hiram--what a man on integrity! He's an honest man who wants to become a lawyer in order to help his fellow man because of a verse, "For The Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off." He was introduced to Mabel because she had heard he defended another innocent man and Mabel needed him to defend her brother Dietrich after he was accused of setting fire to a mill and killing the owner and his family. Mabel requested his help, but Hiram was just going to law school and had not completed his studies, he didn't feel qualified. This novella is a great beginning story that shows the foundation of the Cummings family. It also show that a "good name is rather to be chosen than great riches" as the Bible says. Sweet quick read with a lot of underlying facts that help in putting the why's together for the series! Great add by this author! I was given this book by the author. All thoughts and comments are my own.
