About the Book:

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, 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. 

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.

My Review:
I love a good historical Christian fiction book, and this proved to be one of the best ones so far. I loved everything about this book, from the style of writing to the characters to the theme. I was immediately pulled in from the first page, and wasn’t let go until the very last. It was extremely hard to put this book down at times because I was so pulled into the story and the characters that I didn’t want to lose the feeling of being in that time and place with those amazing people.

This story takes place in both Greece and America, during the era of Al Capone and flapper girls. Amazingly written, this story of Markos, Dino and Sophia was both romantic and tragic, as well as suspenseful. It is a book that has something in it for everyone. My heart went out to all the characters, but Dino really tugged it the most, with his quietness. The message of redemption and sacrifice and friendship is truly amazing. I need tissues through alot of this book, but it’s definitely worth it!

This is definitely a start to a wonderful collection of books by a truly amazing author. I give this book a hands down 5 star rating and highest recommendations.
