From the sultry Chicago jazz clubs of the roaring twenties to the World War II battlefields of Europe to a final showdown in a Greek island village, they’ll discover betrayal, sacrifice, and finally redemption. Most of all, when Sophie is forced to make her choice, she’ll learn that God honors the promises made by the Sons of Thunder."
Note: This description is a little different than the one on the back cover of the book, but it still gives the same idea.
My Rating: Summer
It’s been a while since a book has had me so enthralled! This is one of those books that once started, cannot be put down! I was touched by the author’s note at the beginning, and I really think she did a great job of showing God’s deliverance of the three main characters. The story wraps up beautifully, and the book is written poignantly.
Action keeps the story moving constantly, and there were times when I had a really hard time setting the book aside to go do other things! And the romantic elements—wow! Powerful, thrilling, and heartbreaking, the romance kept me turning those pages.
This is an epic story that truly draws the reader in and stands as a reminder that God loves us enough to offer second chances and redeem us. While this could be intense for some readers—with deaths and strong romantic elements—I think they are handled well and contribute to the overall theme of our need for deliverance. I highly recommend this book!
