Darkness Before Dawn by Ace Collins

Darkness Before Dawn

Book Description:
On the same night she discovers she is pregnant, twenty-eight-year-old nurse Meg Richards husband is killed in an auto accident caused by a drunken teen. James Thomas, the teen, comes from one of the most influential families in the community. He s a star athlete and glamour boy at the local high school. Angered by her senseless loss, Meg blames God for what has happened and considers a decision that could change her life even further until the D.A. intervenes. The results of the brutal trial enrage Meg, leading her down a frightening path of retribution. When the opportunity for revenge comes unexpectedly, will Meg follow through? Or will the remnants of her faith lead her in a different direction?

My Thoughts:
This was a great book.  Meg gets a call that no one wants to get, her husband was killed in a car crash by a drunk driver.  The drunk driver is a teenager from an influential family and is cocky.  Meg had just found out she was pregnant and now does not look forward to life as a single mother.  She blames God for her loss and is determined to get justice, one way or another.
I felt so terrible for Meg and completely understood her stance.  The kid was drunk and way too full of himself.  There were so many characters who all had different stories but they all fit perfectly into the storyline and you understood where each was coming from.  This book does a great job of showing how God can help us, even when we harden our hearts.  He put people in Meg's life to help her and they were there for her even if she didn't want it.  The storyline was great and the author did a marvelous job with a tender subject.
I rate this a 5/5.  It is a great book that you won't want to put down.
