The Gate of DawnThe Gate of Dawn by M J Neary
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very interesting book and I was able to identify with Renate, in so many ways. She is a independent young woman, who wants nothing to do with the silliness of the rest of the society and their norms. She wants to be left alone to help her father in his textile factory and take over the business. When her father is murdered however, her life is abruptly taken into a very different direction and she has to come to terms with her new life. This story is not however just about Renate, it is also about Benjamin, a young Jew who is in love with her, about Sebastian, the family lawyer who has suddenly lost his best paying customer and Sebastian’s sister, who plays at being detective, trying to figure out what all happened and who did it and why.
An intriguing story and plot. I couldn’t put this book down and as said truly enjoyed the story and the characters. The author does a great job in bringing the characters with all their flaws to life.
