Thunder in the Morning Calm is a story of integrity, love, compassion, and character that will grab at the reader’s heart strings and hold the readers’ attention. This is a well written book that will cause you to want to read the whole book in one sitting; however at 330 pages it will take some time to read. The story that this book tells is well developed with characters that the reader can identify with.

As I read this book I was reminded once again of the sacrifice that our men and women in the Armed Forces make. I encourage you to pick up Thunder in the Morning Calm and to pray for the men and women of the Armed Forces. This book will hold your attention throughout, warm your heart and challenge you to stand courageously in whatever circumstances you find yourself in.
