Sophie Frangos is torn between the love of two men and the promise that binds them all together. Markos Stavros loves Sophie from afar while battling his thirst for vengeance and his hunger for honor. Dino, his quiet and intelligent brother, simply wants to forget the horror that drove them from their Greek island home to start a new life in America. One of these sons of thunder offers a future she longs for, the other the past she lost. 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, theyll 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.
Sons of Thunder launches the new Romantic Suspense line for Summerside Press - it will be available to purchase in Wal-mart mid-January. Also - its uniquely written - its an epic suspense story written as three novellas - 3 points of view, 3 settings.
I enjoyed the lesser known history that was woven into the plot of this fiction book. It gave a fascinating view of life back then n ways that we normally do not think about. I also enjoyed the take of the book being written like 3 novellas. It added depth to the characters and thickness to the plot which makes the book a longer and more enjoyable read. Especially for those who can breeze through a book in just a few hours - it makes you feel you got your money's worth! However, while it is a lengthy book, the storyline moves so fast that it is still easy to read as you become sucked into the plot.
Susan May Warren is a gifted writer and has taken three settings with little in common (Chicago's clubs, WWII battlefields, and the Island of Greece) and created a romantic story filled with drama and suspense.
However, despite the attention capturing storyline, I recommend discernment in reading this book because of the shallow presentation of the Gospel and due to some of the content and situations addressed in this book, namely the Chicago club scenes. I would not suggest this book for teen girls.
I have enjoyed several other great books by Susan May Warren, and recommend the Team Hope Series if you like suspense.
