In the course of events, time is not always measured in years but more often in days and moments. Years fly by quickly while moments can seem endless and days interminable. White Dawn Rising, the third and final book in the Extraordinary Love Trilogy brings to a close a chapter in the lives of Tom and Meg Phalen and their family, but only that: a chapter. The years of their lives since the beginning of A Tent For The Sun and continuing in My Tears My Only Bread, seem to have fled across an entire lifetime and for some of the characters actually did, but the love lives on in the minutes and days. In White Dawn Rising, Tom and Meg’s little family faces perhaps the greatest challenges of all. They are forced to take leave of each other; to trust the waves of the ocean and the capriciousness of evil men; to hope against hope that all will end well for them, beyond survival into a new life where they can again live in peace. The love that has sustained and nurtured them through life and death again must stretch itself like a net beneath the tightrope they are forced to walk. At the end of their perilous journey, measured not in years but in moments and days, they can only hope to find themselves alive and whole with their dignity and integrity intact. White Dawn Rising is filled with days marked with lingering moments of tenderness and dark terrifying moments of pursuit and espionage, hilarious reprieve and heart-stopping turns and twists. The Extraordinary Love Trilogy marks a tale of courage to the extreme and endurance beyond measure. The events that started the journey turn full circle to place the Phalens on the brink of mighty and heart-wrenching changes. In the final chapters, White Dawn Rising moves beyond the romance of the early years, past the raw survival of the great hunger and into the final stretch to bring Tom and Meg and their children into a place of justice and redemption one wrong step, one fateful turn, one gloriously hopeful moment at a time.
