Until The Dawn by Gale Sears

Until The Dawn by Gale Sears

This second in this series is more vast in scope than Gale's first vol, as it brings in some issues from the turn of the century. Alaina and Nephi move from the Sierras of California to the bustling noise of automobiles of Salt Lake City in 1914. After a marriage of convenience, Alaina finds she has actually fallen in love with Nephi. They move in with Nephi's mother Patience and Alaina finds solace with Nephi's paternal grandather and is able to find some peace in caring for his orchards. Eleanor, Alaina's younger sister, moves in with her mother and younger sister in their aunt's house on Beacon Street in San Francisco. Eleanor becomes friends with the servants and finds peace in helping young Chinese girls from being abused and finds she wants to be a nurse. James stays in Sutters Creek to work with horses on a ranch and keep an eye on the old family farm that has fallen in disrepair. Philomene, the schoolteacher in Sutters Creek, travels to Brussels, Belguim, to visit her Aunt Hannah and gets embroiled in the start of World War I. This is such a rich saga of the turning of the century, where things are more simple. I highly recommend this wonderful novel to everyone who wants to learn more about a bygone era.
