    Description

    When an early 1900s love story makes its way from revolutionary Russia to a small town in America, a young girl’s life begins to change. Clara Bradley moves from the city to a remote farming town in Eastern Washington—with nothing to offer a young cheerleader but miles of snow-covered wheat fields. She now has no cheer team and nothing to cheer about. But that move brings her an unusual neighbor: an elderly Russian woman who has a love story she is translating into English. Clara’s love of books draws the two together and she becomes immersed in the lives of Nina and Pasha. 

    "Nina sat beneath the tree, winding a bright yellow ribbon through her dark, shiny mane, then wove it all into a long, thick braid. Catching her reflection in the pond, she had to admit she felt pretty. As she filled glasses from a water pitcher, Pasha appeared in the orchard walking toward her. He was wearing a clean white tunic shirt contrasting his dark hair and tanned face. The instant his soft gaze caught Nina’s, her heart fluttered. For the first time, she had an acute awareness that Pasha was not her brother, or even her best friend. He was someone far more endearing." 

    Dawn’s Gentle Light transcends two Countries, two different time periods, and two hearts in need of friendship, hope, and the goodness of God.

    Unexpected Jewel

    👰

    Renée Riva really surprised me! For some reason, I was expecting the typical MOB (mail order bride) for some reason. However, this book is much deeper making the listener listen closely and think about each decision that is made or made for Clara. Nina shares her experiences with the young Clara.

    Susan J Iannucci has a very smooth and comforting voice. I appreciated her voice performance.

    Overall, this is not a lighthearted listen. It is something that really makes the listener think. It is a great book with a matching performance.

    Beautiful story for all ages

    This book was not at all what I expected. I went into it thinking it would be a typical romance book but, I was pleasantly surprised to find I was wrong! This book isn’t just a romance story, it’s a beautifully written story for all ages about love, kindness, friendship, loss, sadness, happiness, and just LIFE! It’s truly a hidden little gem! I will definitely be looking for more from this author. The narration is fabulous, too! I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

    Hard Time Following in the Beginning

    Dawn's Gentle light was a nice story. I liked the time period, characters, and overall story. However, I did have a hard time following in the beginning. I think with a relisten I would follow this story much better.

    Susan J Iannucci does a great narration. I would of liked the voices just slightly more defined.

    Overall a nice story.

    Outstanding!!! I loved this book!

    I absolutely loved this book!!! I wasn't familiar with the author or narrator prior to listening to this wonderful book, and will now add them to my one-click list. Both are extremely talented. This story was so much more than a historical romance. I loved the details and vivid imagery the author wrote. The narrator did an excellent job with the accents and distinguishable voices. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I thought this was a clean listen and age appropriate for most audiences.

    Dawn's Gentle Light

    A wonderfully sweet story within a story. Clara is not happy about her family's move to a small town. Circumstances allow her to befriend an old Russian woman and help her with a book she is writing. The story that is shared with her is life altering.

    EXCELLENT READ!

    I absolutely loved it. Although this story was quick it didn't lack entertainment. This book was full of so many emotions, it truly is appropriate for all ages. The narration was superb and gave the story that extra flair. It will keep you entertained! The author did a great job with the character builds and plot. This was my first book by this author but definitely not my last! I look forward to reading more of her books.

    a lovely sweet story!

    I really loved this story. I know it's for younger readers, but it was interesting enough that it kept those of us who are young at heart interesting too. I loved learning about the history of Russia and learning a bit about the customs and culture. The Small lessons interspersed in the story were wonderful. This is a true family story, suitable for young and old alike. I will be looking for more audio books from this author in the future.
