Book Review: One Summer Sunrise by Shari Low *AD gifted

I was provided with a free ebook of One Summer Sunrise by Shari Low ahead of the blog tour.

I was not expecting what I read. Not at all. And it was marvellous.

5 Word Review: friendship, revelations, family, survival, hope. 

I didn't even know I needed this. 

When the book starts we are thrust straight into the drama of Masie's life, and I have to admit she was my favourite character. Her heart is kind and generous and I felt so sorry for what she went through in the past. I was proud of her for facing up to it though. 

I don't think I actually disliked any of the characters. I really felt for all of them, particularly Scott and Kelly. It broke my heart a little bit. 

To say that the relationships in this book are messy would be an understatement... And it was excellent. I was so here for all of the drama and emotions.,and seeing how each character handled their hurdles. 

The setting moves around a fair bit, this isn't a book centered around community. This is much more about how individual relationships can have an effect on pretty much everyone, and that was rather refreshing to read. 

I thought that One Summer Sunrise was an excellent coming together of characters, and I loved how the stories were told. Its the kind of story that stays with you long after you've finished, and as serious as it could be at times it definitely gave me more than a few chuckles. I really appreciated the lighter more humorous scenes. By the end of the books I felt like I truly knew these characters, and I was very much invested in their lives. 

This is the perfect book to get lost in, it will keep you reading long into sprawling summer evenings. I didn't want to put it down.
