Review:

It is 19 May, 1948. The state of Israel is five days old. The city of Jerusalem is tenuously poised for a clash that will be critical in the life of the new country. Holding the keys to Israeli victory is a diverse, rag-tag group: Peter Wallich, once a teacher of agriculture in the kibbutz, now instructing teens in the assembly of Molotov cocktails; the 74-year-old Mother Superior, who desperately wants to preserve her convent from annihilation; Commander Moshe Sachar and his wife Rachel, who cling together amidst the horrors of war; and an Arab street urchin, Daoud, who repays the kindness of the "infidels" in the best way he knows how. Interspersed throughout is the appearance of a mysterious old gardener, with wounds on the palms of both hands.

In the Zion Legacy series, the Thoenes return to a cast of characters and themes from their best-selling Zion Chronicles series that earned them a sterling reputation and a faithful readership in the Christian fiction arena. This second instalment, Thunder from Jerusalem, starts slowly as the characters are re-introduced, and the stage is set. Then, the pace accelerates. The lives of Muslims, Jews and Catholics all intersect in a tale of romance and suffering, patriotism, and betrayal. Here is solid historical research paired with dramatic storytelling--a combination that has won Brodie and Brock Thoene eight Gold Medallion Awards.

Those who enjoyed the best-selling Jerusalem Vigil, the first book in the Zion Legacy series, won't want to miss this latest offering from the pens of the popular Thoenes. --Cindy Crosby
