Sons of Thunder by Susan May Warren with giveaway

Synopsis:~

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.

My take:~

Since picking up my first Susan May Warren story I have been a devoted reader of her books, proudly owning each one of her books and novellas. Every time I open her latest story, my expectations run high and I know I am in for a great read. What I didn't expect was to read a book that is arguably Susan's best work and, without question, on a par with Bodie Thoene and Tricia Goyer's exceptional World War II novels. Sons of Thunder plunged me deep into the sights, sounds and smells of the Aegean Sea and into the hearts and minds of two of its native sons, the volatile Markus and the intense Dino. Their traumatic journey from their homeland to the tempestuous streets of Chicago is exacerbated by their abiding love for their childhood friend, Sofia who is deeply wounded by her own experiences. Then Pearl Harbour is attacked, America enters the war and a safe tomorrow looks like a pipe dream. Poignant, emotive, enthralling and redemptive, Sons of Thunder is stellar novel that I cannot recommend highly enough. Bring on the sequel!

Susan May Warren is one of my favorite authors. Suspense, adventure, romance, and humor fill her novels and somehow she also manages to draw the readers to a closer walk with the Lord. I can't wait to read this new adventure.
