Summary

Susan Sterling wanted nothing more than to escape her life...and her marriage. The family's secluded cabin in Kings Canyon National Park seemed the only place for her to find peace. But it took Shawn Weber coming into her life for her to find the courage to make changes. The budding friendship between the two women strengthens into an intense emotional bond, a bond that soon eclipses friendship.   

Despite pressure from her family to reconcile with her husband, Susan can't deny the feelings that Shawn stirs in her. Susan finds she's willing to forsake her entire family for a chance at love with Shawn.

Loved it! Been waiting forever ❤️

Totally loved every moment! To be honest, I’ve been waiting for this audiobook the second Gerri released her first in this format. As always Abbey did an amazing job but for few....it sounded like you switched the voices for Shawn and Susan. Stand up job either way! Thanks guys! Off to your latest Gerri 🚀

Infidelity rocks her world, LOVE ignites her heart

Susan world has been shattered. Unsure of who she is or what she wants the mountain retreat is where heads. Shawn has closed herself off for most of her life. They collide on a walk path which opens up a friendship they both need. Neither expects love. Gerri Hill gives us beautiful characters you will enjoy seeing their love unfold. Abby Craden brings them to life in this magnificent story of restorative love. I loved it and will listen to it often.

Enjoyed the story and the narration

I enjoyed the two well developed, mature characters, the interesting family dynamics and the setting. And then, there’s Alex the dog. I loved him.

Couldn’t stop listening!

Started listening with the intent of only doing several chapters a day. Ended up listening to the entire 6hours in one setting.

Loved the character development. Although a tad predictable, the unfolding of the story kept me hooked.

1st book of this type & It was awesome!

The author totally pulls you into a story of so much emotional connection & passion that you get completely lost. This is my first time reading a lesbian based book but I could relate in so many ways to these characters and just the basic connections two people can share while falling in love.

Oh how I have waited for this!

I have loved this story since it first hit the scene. I have read it so many times that I’ve had to replace it once already and will probably have to do it again soon. I love Gerri Hill and this story is, for me, one of the best romances out there. It’s not too heavy, not too light, not too graphic, but doesn’t skimp on the passion.
I would love this story in any format and I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to listen to it.
I know this book so well that these characters’ voices have been alive in my head for years. While the narrator’s pace was great and understanding of the story was pretty strong, some of them didn’t sound quite right to me. Particularly Shawn. I also felt that the tone of certain scenes didn’t match the narrator’s delivery. But, again, I’ve been reading and rereading this book for years so I’m a tiny bit biased. Overall, I very much enjoyed this. It feels like it comes alive even more when I can hear it and picture it. Thank you, Ms Hill for writing this and for putting it in this format. I love it!

Loved it

Loved Dawn of Change. The story flowed well. I always love how Gerri's characters fall in love with each other slowly and naturally, sometimes without realizing they've fallen in love. It was a funny and feel good story, despite the annoying, judgemental family members.
