Darkness before Dawn by Ace Collins

About Darkness Before Dawn: Will grief push Meg over the edge?

On the same night she discovers she is pregnant, twenty-eight-year-old nurse Meg Richards's husband is killed in an auto accident caused by a drunken teen. James Thomas comes from one of the most influential families in the community. He's a star athlete and glamour boy at the local high school. But the accident he caused will change his life---and Meg's future---forever.
Angered by her senseless loss and facing life as a single mother, Meg blames God for what has happened and considers a decision that could change her life even further. Enraged by the brutal trial and the court's decision, Meg starts down a frightening path of retribution. When the opportunity for revenge comes unexpectedly, will Meg follow through? Or will the remnants of her faith lead her in a different direction?

My Take:  Meg receives a phone call in the middle of the night fully expecting it to be the hospital where she works calling her in but instead it is a call telling her that her husband was killed in a drunk driving accident.  She also learns on the same night that she is pregnant.  Facing a future of raising her child by herself and feeling betrayed by the justice system,  Meg decides to turn her back on God and to extract her own justice.  But God isn't finished with her and that is really the main story here. 

What a horrible call to get, that your loved one has been killed in an accident that was totally preventable if only the driver hadn't gotten behind the wheel after he had been drinking.  Then to learn that the driver had a powerful Judge for a father that he could get him off.  Where did that leave you and the feeling of justice.  But remember that justice comes from God.  And even if we don't feel like justice is served, God has a Plan.  

This book had me feeling alot of different emotions, anger, disbelief, sorrow to name a few but in the end I felt that God has all things in control.  Great book.  Would recommend it.  

I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
