Waiting For Sunrise by Eva Marie Everson

Patsy Milstrap hasn't lived the life she expected. Patsy is sent away from her family for her own protection, though she doesn't understand that. As Patsy grows up, she seems to live a normal life, marrying a local war hero, raising a family, but her past still haunts her. Her husband is trying to do everything to help Patsy, but nothing seems to work, until they take a vacation to Cedar Key where Patsy must face the truth.

After reading the first Cedar Key novel, Chasing Sunsets, which greatly disappointed me, I wasn't sure what I was going to think of Waiting For Sunrise. While I didn't find it to be a favorite book, I did enjoy reading it much more than Chasing Sunsets. In reading Chasing Sunsets, the character of Patsy had been introduced and some of her story had been told. I figured that enough of it was told that there wasn't going to be much new in this book, but boy was I wrong. Everson took a small story line and made it into a full length novel that I enjoyed reading.
I give this book 4 stars.
I received this book from Revell for the purpose of this review.

This book will just tear at your heartstrings. You will grieve as each family member tries to find their way. You will want to shake Patsy and tell her to face her past and her feelings before it destroys her life and marriage. I loved the story and I have to say the last pages are my favorite. I loved the imagery that Ms. Everson creates with that final bus-ride. A awesome end to a sad story, that seemed to have resolution.
