Kathryn Cushman | Bethany House
In Kathryn Cushman’s Another Dawn, single mother Grace Graham finds herself coming full circle after choosing to run from life’s difficulties since her mother’s passing more than four years ago.
At the request of her sister and in hopes of reconciling with her father—whom Grace blames for her mother’s death—Grace heads for her hometown of Shoal Creek, Tenn., to help her father recover from surgery. While there, Grace’s 4-year-old son, Dylan, gets the measles.
Knowing that her California employer’s son became autistic after being vaccinated worries Grace, so she decides against having Dylan vaccinated. But when the disease spreads and the town is quarantined, Grace is hit with a backlash of hate and blame, including from her sister whose baby daughter is fighting for her life.
In spite of the turmoil, Grace chooses to stay, and with the help of an old friend who comes to her aid, she finds herself praying for her niece to be healed and that God will help her reconcile her relationships.
Through her characters, Cushman—a former pharmacist—demonstrates both sides of the immunization argument. The well-written Another Dawn shows that choices have consequences, good or bad, that affect others.
