Missouri River, 1810
Broken-hearted and abandoned in the wilds of America’s untamed White DawnWest, sixteen-year-old Emily Ambrose is rescued from certain death by solitary trapper John Cartier. Though she’s learned the hard way not to trust any man, she can’t help but feel safe with the kind stranger.
John can’t imagine anyone willingly letting Emily go. Her strength and beauty call to him, but it is clear her wounded heart needs time to heal, and he won’t settle for just her body. He vows to return Emily to civilization—and to resist the desire growing between them, unless she turns to him out of love.
Emily is drawn to her rugged but gentle rescuer, and begins to feel the passion that a woman can feel for a man. But she can’t embrace a future with John as long as she’s haunted by secrets of the past…

** Perfect 10 ***
WHITE DAWN is a truly amazing story of friendship, love, trust, family and the struggles of life in the wilderness. The characters are likable and well developed leaving nothing to the readers imagination. Emily must learn that love doesn”t mean hurt and abandonment, it can be more so much more. Swift Foot struggles with his love for a white woman and his devotion to his tribe. John is the kind of man every woman would love to have in their lives, he is devoted, listens, is a true friend, and wants nothing more than to make the woman in his life happy after all she is the other half of his heart. This story held me in its grasp as Emily went from a hurt young woman to one that believes in love and happily ever after. The descriptive narrative vividly brought to life the wilderness in all its glory.
Susan Edwards has delivered a well-written, heartwarming story with a strong message about what love is all about. This book kept me burning the midnight oil. I heartily recommend WHITE DAWN for an unforgettable read!

— HUNTRESS BOOK REVIEWS (Reviewed by Detra Fitch)
WHITE DAWN is an excellent installment in Susan Edwards “”White Series””. The characterization and rich narrative are both superb, and the plot flows seamlessly and smoothly. Both John and Swift-Foot are wonderful heroes, each loving Emily in their own way. Emily is also a very strong character and handles all of the obstacles thrown in her path intelligently. The supporting characters are fully realized and several beg to be brought back in subsequent stories. Readers who have been following this series will savor WHITE DAWN and look forward to the next story
