Author Eva Marie Everson expertly draws out the bittersweet moments of life, weaving them into a tale that envelops the soul.
I don't often give a book a 5 star rating, I have to absolutely love it. But in the case of Waiting for Sunrise, I could give it no less. The second book in the Cedar Key series, Waiting for Sunrise picks up the story of Patsy Milstrap, who was a secondary character in the first book, Chasing Sunsets. I throroughly enjoyed Chasing Sunsets, and honestly, when I saw that the next book was about Patsy, I didn't think that I would like it as much as the first one. However, as great as Chasing Sunsets was, Waiting for Sunrise was even better! I was hanging on to every page to get to the end, yet I didn't want it to end!!
After losing her husband, Patsy's mother marries a man who is not who she thought he was. Phsyically and mentally abusive, Patsy's home is a place filled with fear and pain. Fearful for Patsy's safety, Patsy's mother makes the choice to send Patsy to live with the family who is raising her younger brother. As readers, we see the story from the perspective of each character, so we know that Patsy's mother, Bernice, loved Patsy and made the decision for her safety, however, 13 year old Patsy feels abandoned, even as she settles into her new life with a wonderful family. As Patsy grows into womanhood, she falls in love and marries a wonderful man and is surrounded by a wonderful family and friends who love and support her. Despite all of these blessings, Patsy still struggles with feeling of abandonment and also mental illness.
We also see the story of Bernice and her husband Ira, as well as Patsy's younger brothers, Harold and Billy. As time goes on, Bernice is continually subjected to the abuse of Ira, and their home is completely dysfunctional. In time, they move to a town where they become involved in a wonderful community and begin attending a church in which Bernice receives love and support from friends and begins to become a stronger person. Harold is determined to life a wild life and make bad choices, however, Billy thrives in the community and church. As Billy grows into adulthood, he is determined not to walk in the steps of his father. He strives to make wise choices and to do the right thing by his family.
All of the characters yearn for a reunion, but for Patsy, she was unable to find her mother at the time she searched, which led to her increased feelings of rejection and abandonment. Bernice, though her she loves her daugher dearly, feels that Patsy has moved on and that it would be best not to interfere. Of course, all of this comes to a head in the story.
While the story does not end the way that you "want" it to end, I liked the conclusion of the story. While everything is not tied up in a nice package with a pretty bow, it is clear that the story is true to life. The characters are real and genuine. While there are blessings and good things in their life; true love, loyal friends, etc. people still struggle with intense issues despite those things. The author deals with serious and heavy topics, yet you don't feel depressed while you are reading it. The story was beautifully written and I fell in love with the characters. I am eager for the next book in the series!
I enjoyed this book so much! Loved Patsy in the first Cedar Key novel, "Chasing Sunsets", though she wasn't the main character, I still loved reading about her. I couldn't imagine "Waiting for Sunrise" to be as good, but it was and I fell in love with this book.

This book is about family, young love, and forgiveness. Patsy endured so much as a child and her mother, Bernice, made the ultimate sacrifice for her daughter's safety and happiness. In the beginning Patsy looses so much, but in the end she gains everything, everything she ever dreamed of and ever wanted, which was her true love, Gilbert Milstrap. Their story was so beautiful. Their faith in GOD and each other was so moving, and kept me wanting to read more and more. I had a hard time putting this book down. I found myself in tears at the end of their story!

This book is a must read! Thank you Eva Marie Everson for a wonderful and heart warming story.

Now on to the 3rd and final book of the Cedar Key novels. There is no way it can hold a candle to "Waiting for Sunrise"....................... We shall see!
Patsy Sweeny is only 13 years old when her mother puts her on a bus to save her from her lecherous and abusive step father. She is sent to live with the Buchwald's who adopted her baby brother as an infant. "Mam" and "Papa" take her in and love her as if she was their own. From there, she has a pretty normal childhood and grows up and marries her childhood sweetheart Gilbert and has children of her own. However, as perfect as her life seems to be, Patsy struggles with feelings of abandonment that eventually takes over her life.

Billy Liddle is only 4 years old when his older half sister is sent away. He grows up trying to be "the good son" so his father has no reason to beat him like he beats his mother and older brother. He thinks his mother must love Patsy more since she sent her away to protect her from his father. He grows up into the good man he strives to be, unlike his father. He too marries his childhood sweetheart and joins her father's business.

Their reunion as adults is the catalyst for forgiveness and healing as they each learn the reason's behind their mothers actions.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a page turner for me and I couldn't wait to see how it turned out. I related to the characters - Patsy's mother and the hard choices she made, Patsy struggling to live with one of those choices, and Billy coming to terms with who he is. Gilbert's love for Patsy was beautiful. All in all...a great read.
When I first purchased this book it was expecting a continuation of the first Cedar Keys novel and was surprised to see it was all about Patsy’s past. In the end I enjoyed this book even more than the first one. What a lovely surprise. I highly recommend this book.
Loving the setting and how the author makes Cedar Key come alive in the series. The story line seems to have affected readers in different ways, and maybe that's the hallmark of a great novel? Less than the focus on an unending postpartum depression, a beautiful portrayal of love and faithfulness emerges. Sure, divorce wasn't as common or as easy back in the day, but Gilbert, the committed husband, is an example of the staying kind. One who values his wife and family so much that he works through the tough stuff, always hoping things will get better. And they did. Many of us, even those not carrying the burden of abandonment, have been confused about the perception of being unloved. Thank you to the author for showing us that sometimes what is construed that way is truly the deepest act of love one can receive.
