DAWN OF A NEW DAY
In this final book in Morris' American Century series, characters are lovable and their faith remains strong throughout the challenges of the 1960s.
The Stuart extended family has seen broad societal changes from the early 1700s to 1900s. Now they are faced with the stormy '60s, which gives them the Kennedys, the Vietnam War, clashes over civil rights and the ever-changing youth culture. Rock star Bobby Stuart gets his big break when he's offered a movie role, but his drug use may be his fall from grace.
Prudence Deforge is struggling
with high school and all the problems that go along with it. Mark Stevens, Pru's best friend, sticks up for her and tries to get her to see her full potential. He also struggles with what to do
with his life and with his feelings for Prudence. Whatever God puts in front
of them, they will come through the challenges as better people. (Revell,
