Dawn to Midnight is a nostalgic memoir that follows the life of a man who grew up on a small farm, stabling horses in central Pennsylvania, to adulthood and beyond—to the winter days of his life in an ever-changing world.
As a child, Patrick McFadden attended a rural, one-room school and describes his childhood growing up near an Amish community. As an adult, he worked within numerous governmental agencies as an employee, consultant, and liaison on behalf of law enforcement. He chronicles his years as executive director of a large Department of Emergency Services with oversight of the Department of Emergency Management and Emergency 911 Communications Center, along with the near meltdown of the Three-Mile Island Nuclear Power Facility, the tragedy of September 11, and his time as chair of a large counterterrorism task force. McFadden’s memoir spans three-quarters of a century and takes the reader on an unforgettable journey.
