About the Book

Wendy feels abandoned and alone in a cold northeastern college town surrounded by the untroubled youth of her generation. She has escaped the bleak existence of her past caring for a father wallowing in alcoholism and self-pity, but she shares nothing in common with the carefree crowd around her. Finally convinced that her abdominal pain is the cancer that stole her beloved mother, she seeks aid and solace at the Emergency Room. Despair compounds Wendy’s depression when she discovers that she is carrying a child. Guilt wracks her as she struggles with her infidelities, and shame humbles her before the handsome young intern so anxious to help her. Teetering on the edge of a high cliff of helplessness, grace rescues her in the coincidence of the young intern and the miracle of the animate child within her. The faith she learns to embrace from the unborn blessing in her womb propels her from an existence of desperation to a life of unforeseen joy and promise.


About the Author

John Gordon was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania during the exciting and tumultuous era of the sixties, and early seventies. Mr. Gordon was educated at Sewickley Academy, and the Universities of Denver and Vermont where he studied history, and literature, and excelled in skiing, and the excesses of American youth. He resides in the verdant rolling hills of western New Jersey with his lovely wife, Andree, beautiful daughter, Emmy, Gus, the yellow lab, a French bulldog named Beans, a house full of cats, and a pair of handsome horses; Charlie and Ellwood. Dawn’s Splintered Light is the second of his daily reflections series, and joins his five novels on the Xlibris website.
