The Dawning

The Dawning by Megan Taylor is an indulgent and very focussed read. The story unravels over the space of about 12 hours from New Years eve onwards. 

One family's secrets overflow from the first page and they sweep the reader along. Unfolding with perfect symmetry, the plot is as unsettling as the approach of a summer thunderstorm and as irresistible as the warm summer rain that follows. 

I stayed up late reading this and would then wake during the night thinking about it. It's a great novel and one which I will read again.

You can treat yourself to a copy here or here and you can visit Megan at her blog.

Dang! Amazon says 'out of print' / limited availability.
