About the Book
With her brothers away fighting the Great War overseas, Livy Campbell desperately wants to help her family. Her chance comes when she meets a handsome stranger who lands her a job as a teacher in a place far from her parents' farm. But the war casts a long shadow over the German-American town that Livy now calls home—and the darkness will test everything she thought she knew about family and love . . .
More than anything, Friedrick Wagner wants to be part of his adopted country's struggle for peace. But when the bitter animosity between Germans and Americans soon turns citizens against newcomers, friend against friend, he will do whatever it takes to protect Livy from the hysteria that grips their town. As tragedy—and dark secrets from the past—threaten their future, Friedrick and Livy have one chance to stand up for what's right . . . and one chance to fight for their love.

Book one in author Stacy Henrie’s series Of Love and War, Hope at Dawn, is a story that shows of the prejudices and hatred toward German-Americans during WWI. It is also about a German-American man and an American woman that through it all find a way to friendship and eventually love. This beautiful story also shows of the support and love of a German-American community that comes together to help in times of need. This sweet historical, romance story will touch and inspire readers with its delightful characters and charming story. I would recommend this story to readers that enjoy historical, romance novels.
