Coming soon from Bodie & Brock Thoene and Summerside Press

With my love of history, especially during the 1930s to 1940s, I was enthralled by Bodie Thoene's Zion Chronicles, Zion Covenant and Zion Legacy series when they first started releasing back in 1989. In fact I have their entire fiction backlist of their original releases, with the exception of their Galway Chronicles!

Known for their historical accuracy and in depth characterisation, I'm sure the Zion Diaries, releasing from Summerside Press, will be no different.

Any of you read their earlier series? Any of you keen to start?

The Gathering Storm by Bodie & Brock Thoene

As Nazi forces tighten the noose, Loralei must flee her beloved Germany.

But is anywhere safe from Adolf Hitler’s evil grasp? When her father, a German opposition leader, is imprisoned by the Nazis, Loralei is forced into hiding and then on a harrowing flight that will eventually lead her to London. In the midst of grief and deep losses of her own, Loralei finds meaning in helping the overwhelming flood of refugees, including thousands of children, who escaped Hitler’s reach and made their way to freedom, yet sacrificed everything in exchange for their lives.

While in London, Loralei meets a friend of her father’s from her pre-war life in Germany…and falls deeply, passionately in love. Yet he’s a man she can never marry - a mysterious figure who closely guards an age-old secret. As air-raid sirens now wail over blacked-out London and Luftwaffe fighters fill the British skies, Loralei looks for a new reason to live in hope, even amidst the debris of so much brokenness.

Releasing August, 2010

Here's what their new publisher has to say about the Thoenes:~

and Brock Thoene (pronounced Tay-nee) have written over 50 works of historical fiction. That these best sellers have sold more than 20 million copies and won eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirms what millions of readers have already discovered—the Thoenes are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers’ minds and hearts.

Whoa, you own them all? That's amazing to me. I've read almost all of Zion Chronicles and Zion Covenant, and Galway Chronicles. I didn't enjoy Zion Legacy (I think it was Legacy, anyway) as much, though.

Yep, purchased by me or as gifts from my family :)

I agree, the Zion Legacy didn't quite capture me as much as the other series.
