I am super blessed to be a part of the LitFuse flock of bloggers.
Through LitFuse I get to check out the latest books from a variety of publishers, which really works for me because I absolutely LOVE to read! Books are such a passion and when there is a book that teaches me a lesson along the way, I fall in love with literature all over again.
This week I am participating in the Blog Tour for the newest novel by Susan May Warren. Sons of Thunder is actually the first in a collection of books Susan is writing which will be called the Brothers in Arms Collection.
Sons of Thunder is a wonderfully written romantic and suspenseful book. Set in the early 1900’s, it tells the story of 2 brothers who flee Greece for America. They are thrown into the American ways all the while trying to keep some sense of who they are. Added into the mix is a love interest who is torn between the two. Susan transports you from a fishing village in Greece to the mob war ridden streets of Chicago onto the World War II battlefields of Europe. Sons of Thunder is really the 3 separate stories of Brothers Markos and Dino and Sofia, the girl who has won their hearts.
Honestly though the thing that touched me the most about this book was the message. In every hurt, God heals and repairs. Through Him our regrets, transgressions, and emotional wounds will be wiped clean and cured. I think this is something that is easy for us to forget. Many of us have a hard time leaving a past behind when it is just that. The past. We must buckle down look toward the future and what we will do with our lives then.
Along with this review I’m happy to pass on some great contests that Susan and LitFuse are offering.
