Darkness Before Dawn by Ace Collins - Book Review

Darkness Before Dawn
From back cover:
On the same night she discovers she is pregnant, twenty-eight-year-old nurse Meg Richards's husband is killed in an auto accident caused by a drunken tee. James Thomas comes from one of the most influential families in the community. He's a star athlete and glamour boy at the local high school. But the accident he caused will change his life-and Meg's future-forever.
Angered by her senseless loss and facing life as a single mother, Meg blames God for what has happened and considers a decision that could change her life even further. Enraged by the brutle trial and the court's decision, Meg starts down a frightening path of retribution. When the opportunity for revenge comes unexpectly, will Meg follow through? Or will the remnants of her faith lead her in a different direction?
My Review:
This is a powerful story which begins with tragedy and loss. Ace Collins describes his characters' emotions so well, bringing them to life on the page. What is a work of fiction could well describe real-life situations. In the the beginning, there was so much darkness, I eagerly awaited the coming of dawn.
The story made me wonder how I would react in a similar situation, and helped we to see some appropriate responses to those who are grieving.

I love how Ace kept the chapters short. This kept me flipping pages. Ace is a masterful storyteller. Keep up the good work, Ace. I look forward to your next book.
