Survivors’ Dawn: A heroic story of three college women’s fight for justice

At first glance, Brooke Flanagan, Lauren Le, and Nikki Towers have little in common: a churchgoing virgin, a party girl, and a resident advisor. But they all have their own dreams, dreams that can be shattered in a single night.

When freshman Brooke Flanagan first arrives at the university, she’s excited to escape her sheltered life in a Southern town. Lauren Le, a scholarship student, likes to have a good time, but she never disappoints her hardworking, single mom. Nikki Towers always goes her own way; confident, poised, and wealthy, Nikki’s biggest problem is what to do with her future.

Into these girls’ lives walks Colin Jordan. Colin is the son of a private equity titan, captain of his club basketball team, and a brilliant pre-law student. He is also a sexual predator.

Survivors’ Dawn is a story about the strength, courage, and determination of three young women who struggle to survive sexual assault and bring their assailant to justice.



Having read early drafts of the manuscript at Ashley’s request, I know that she put heart and soul into writing a can’t-stop-reading novel that also addresses a serious issue: the crisis of sexual assault on college campuses. This novel gives new adults and their parents a way to learn more about this subject while reading a fast-paced, heroic story.
