Isn’t Dawn and the Letters just the most beautiful, artistic cover ever? Honestly, if I was a middle-grade girl and I saw this in the bookstore, there’s like a 100% chance I would buy it. Almost makes me sad that I’m no longer in the intended age category, but I’ve heard that this is perfect for really all ages. Ready for the blurb? Okay, yeah, me too.

The Blurb

Dawn Chandler is newly settled in Lone Pine, and she can’t wait for the family wedding. When she and her friend Moriah discover an old letter written during the Vietnam War, they hatch a plan for a grand wedding surprise. Forming the “Smokey’s Sleuths” group with their siblings, they intend to track down the letter’s author.

As plans move forward with festivities, Dawn tries to ignore Rochelle, the one girl determined to make her life miserable and ruin her friendships. But Smokey’s Sleuths soon discover that Rochelle is the one person who holds the clue they desperately need.

Will Smokey’s Sleuths be able to track down the letter’s author in time to pull off a wedding surprise, or will Dawn’s struggle to love her enemy keep them from their goal?

What people are saying on Goodreads…

Olivia

This is a sweet, fun, story perfect for any middle-grade reader. Dawn is a charming heroine, and I really enjoyed the large Jennings family (I adore sibling stories and this book certainly has enough siblings to go around)!

While the story itself is fun and the adventure is satisfying, Noel has also woven in valuable Biblical lessons and principles. Readers of all ages will be able to relate to Dawn’s struggle to forgive and love her enemies.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
Korin

Perfect for elementary-school girls, Dawn and the Letters teaches in an engaging way that loving your enemies is the best way to go. The book is short and uncomplicated for young readers, with a simple and sweet plot.

Character-wise, Dawn is a good portrayal of an average Christian girl who’s definitely not perfect and has typical, twelve-year-old struggles. I enjoyed her interactions with her siblings and friends, and all the different personalities Eliza created. Coming from a big, country family, I can definitely relate to the Jennings!

I give the design an A+. The cover is so cute, and the inside has some awesome extras, my favorite being a clean-cut, artistic map of Lone Pine. Book extras amp up any book for me, and I loved what these added to the story!

Eliza Noel has penned a fresh, appealing story that will take young readers to the beautiful mountains of Lone Pine. I can’t wait to see what she’ll do next!

Dawn and the Letters is an endearing book full of heart, laughs, and Biblical themes.

The story is witty and cozy all at once, with a good dose of humor and feel-good vibes. The themes are handled so well. Forgiveness and love can be hard to tackle! But this book shows sometimes how simple it can be.

I really loved the realistic, vivid characters and the quaint setting! And the cover is so cozy, y’all! Honestly, I just cannot wait to have this complete series on my shelf for my nieces when they grow older! These books make me so nostalgic!

I’d recommend this series to middle grade readers and anyone who wants a sweet read!

About the Author

Eliza Noel is a home school graduate with passion for Jesus, people, and literature. Growing up, her favorite books were always Nancy Drew, Anne of Green Gables, and Pride and Prejudice. Around age twelve she wanted to read something with positive values in a modern setting, but couldn’t find what she was looking for. So she wrote it.

When not doing something book-related (reading, writing, blogging, bookstagramming), Eliza works at her day jobs, spends time with her many younger siblings, longboards, has coffee with friends, eats chocolate, and listens to music. California is home, but she would like to travel more and feels she could learn to be content anywhere.

You can follow her writing journey and see snippets of her everyday life on elizanoelauthor.blogspot.com or by following @elizanoelauthor on social media.
