After reading this book today, I feel a little like I've been through a battle myself. The storyline tosses and turns through twisting pathways until you're not sure who you're rooting for and wondering how on earth all the pieces will come together.

Sons of Thunder, written by Susan May Warren, is a BRAND new release from Summerside Press. This 320-page paperback has a list price of $12.99.  For more info, check out this book's site.  And visit Litfuse Group for more stops on the blog tour.

Author Susan May Warren has been writing as long as she can remember, winning her first book writing contest in first grade! Her life experience includes mission work with her family in Russia, and now they live in northern Minnesota, where she continues to write and win awards. You can learn more about her at http://susanmaywarren.com/.

Here's how the publisher describes this 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.
That little description there doesn't begin to prepare you for this complex storyline, which I'd love to share with you, but I don't want to spoil the book! The author tackles writing about two vastly different venues (Greece and Chicago), from three characters' perspectives, covering Greek family feuds, the Chicago mob scene, and World War II events - and ties them all together splendidly.

This is definitely an action-packed page turner. I love the international flavor of the book. And I love the ultimate message that God can bring all things together to work for good and can change lives, though much of the drama is a result of poor choices made outside of His will.

Thanks to Litfuse Publicity for the review copy of this book.
