Hello and welcome to the Follow the Dawn blog tour! I’m posting today about Rachelle Rea Cobb’s Follow the Dawn, an inspirational historical YA romance set during the 16th century!

Rachelle is also the author of The Steadfast Love Series, Letters Home, and Write Well, a guide for writers! I’m joining in this blog tour to tell you a little more about Follow the Dawn and spread the news about the rocking giveaway Rachelle is hosting—make sure you enter using the Rafflecopter form to win a signed copy of her book!


Follow the DawnFollow the Dawn was a fantastic book! It was an intriguing tale suitable for both adult and young adult readers. The fear and panic that Anna experienced quite frequently in her life was palpable while reading this story. At first, I was occasionally frustrated by her overreactions to things that occurred, however, I began to see that this physical reaction to the emotional hurt she experienced growing up was something that she would have to learn to overcome. I loved seeing her heal and begin to realize that not every man was like her father. I especially liked seeing the connection that began to build with Tudder. He was such a wonderful character, burdened by guilt, yet looking to start anew with his son.

It was fun to catch up with the characters from the Steadfast Love series! If you haven’t read that series yet, don’t worry, Follow the Dawn will still be easy to read and enjoy. However, I definitely recommend that exciting series, as well.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Follow the Dawn

Anna Emory grew up the invisible younger sister, shy and quiet, and she prefers it that way. But her father’s attempts to arrange an unsavory marriage teach her that courage is sometimes found in adversity.

Then she meets a boy and his father who tip her quiet world upside down.

Captain Mathieu Tudder has run from responsibility, entrusting his young son’s care to another and devoting his Sea Beggar ship to the cause of the Dutch Revolution. After the cause fails, Tudder returns to England for the son he left behind, all he has left of the wife he lost. But Titus prefers a mysteriously quiet nursemaid to his estranged father.

Tudder wants his son back, yet Anna stands in his way. Will these two hearts—the battle-scarred and the broken—ever find true freedom?

Rachelle Cobb

Rachelle Rea Cobb has history with words. She penned her first short story in middle school, her first novel right out of high school, and signed a three-book publishing contract right after college. Her Steadfast Love series (from WhiteFire Publishing) and 2020 release, Follow the Dawn (Illuminate Publishing) are set during the Dutch Revolution. She is also the author of Write Well, a short writing guide designed to teach the structure of good writing. Rachelle is a freelance editor, an author of six books, and voracious reader. If you’re looking for her, check the bookstore. In 2016, she married a man with the same name as her fictional hero and they live happily ever after in a fixer-upper by the sea. She’s a fan of chai and lemonade (though definitely not together)!
