A very touching, emotional, and well-written story. Besides being a wonderful story "Daybreak" sheds alot of light on how prejudices are learned, not inherited.

Another excellent book by Belva Plain. Since reading this one and After the fire, I now keep my eye out for all of her books and buy them whenever possible. Belva Plain is a really good writer and she really makes the characters come alive on the pages. By the time you are done with the book, you feel you really know the characters in the book as if they were your neighbors.

I really like this book. A great story of two families and their emotional ups and downs. Dealing with illness, predudice and all emotions inbetween.

i have always enjoyed Belva Plain books ever since "Evergreen". Ms Plain writes about family and relationships, choices and results of those choices down thru generations. This book was right in keeping with her other novels.

Belva Plain is an excellent author but I found myself skipping sections because I could not get into it at first. By time I did get into it was about half way through and then it held my attention to the end of the book.
