thoene Time 25. März 2011
Von Cheryle A. Coapstick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
By page twenty three this was not a book. This was not a story. It was not a pleasant evenings's pastime. It was in your face LIFE. The good, the bad, the evil. As I read, I lived! I felt the hope and I was crushed by the hopelessness. I had the clarity of purpose expressed by Elisa and John Murphy and at the same time shared their frustration and confusion in the circumstances. I was srenghtened by their love and devastated by their loss. The Blitz was raining hell on London. There was no fixing this situation. No safety, no sanctuary. Cities all over England were burning. And then, in the midst of this symphony of sadness and despair, a faint melody of hope begins to sound. A ship to America! A select few can escape-and all over England mothers wailed: "it will break my heart to send my child away, it will tear me in two to let him stay". The pathos of mothers who had the opportunity to choose was soul searing! Elisa and John are parted once again for the greater good, for the children. But the distance is great and the ocean is filled with man's evil. It is dark, dangerous, dispairing; cold, cruel, crushing. They are wet, weary, worried; hungry, horrified, hopeless. And yet, and yet...Conner's tin whistle is like David's harp; encouraging. Lindy's journal like a Book of Rememberance; inspiring. The lock of hair, brillant; evidence of things not seen. I have not yet read the discussion questions at the end of the book. Emotionally I am still in the mid-Atlantic wondering how I will fare AGAINST THE WIND!

Beautiful... 29. März 2011
Von Michaela Hughes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Amazing. Brilliant. Beautiful. But can we expect anything less from the Thoenes?! It was wonderful to be reunited with favorite characters Elisa and Murphy. Elisa's plight in the mid-Atlantic was riveting. The Thoenes weave their stories expertly, so that the reader is unable to put the book down until the end. I was transported into 1940's London, I heard the bombs fall; the buildings tremble. I smelled the salt air, I felt the ocean spray, and I ached with cold, hunger, and despair. This is certainly one of the Thoene's best. I can't wait until the next book in this series is released!

Against the Wind (Zion Diaries) 10. Mai 2011
Von demma - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have been a Brock and Bodie Thoene fan for years. Their books are well written and the research they do is phenomenal. Against the Wind is no exception. Written with utmost detail, once again the Thoene's hold the readers attention with an interesting plot and well-defined characters. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.

Not as good as the original series 13. Januar 2012
Von Moira - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read the Zion Covenant series many years ago and had a hard time remembering the details of who was who, and what happened when, with this book. I wished I could have found a synopsis for the Zion Covenant series somewhere. (Vienna Prelude is on Facebook, but not the rest of the series.) I found the way the diary kept jumping backwards and forwards, somewhat off putting in the beginning - especially as the formatting is ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. Commas, circles, squares, stray letters appear on almost every "page" and new paragraphs start in the middle of a sentence. Then when it jumps to a different year, there is no new paragraph at all. I very nearly gave up.

However if you can get past that (Amazon you need to fix this!!) then it's a good read though sometimes laborious. I found the ending very strange though and couldn't quite believe I'd come to the end of the book, with no explanation of what actually happened. I wonder if the authors are going to address that in their next book - somehow I doubt it, seeing book 1 dealt with a different set of characters.

deep WWII drama 5. April 2011
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
By 1940, the Nazis control much of central Europe. Jewish violinist Elisa Lindheim Murphy and her American newspaper reporter spouse John Murphy accompanied by their three kids manage to flee Germany in 1937 and soon after leave Vienna for London. However, Britain does not prove much safer as the German Luftwaffe Blitz the country. Hitler's invasion seems imminent as the Battle of Britain rages in the sky and at sea.

John and Elisa send their twin adopted eight years old sons Charles and Louis Kroenberger and their seventeen month old baby Katie to live in America with his parents. As the North Atlantic turns deadly, Elisa decides to escort Jewish children to the States. In late October 1940 a U-boat sinks the SS Newcastle. Elisa and others manage to get on lifeboats, but ten days later their prayers have not been answered. She knows young Connor with his tin whistle is a hero that future books will never know of and thinks if she had her violin she would play Kol Nidre to tell people how it felt when the torpedoes hit the refugee vessel.

The latest Zion Diaries (see The Gathering Storm) is a deep WWII drama as the battle of Britain may have been the finest hour, but for years this is one of Europe's darkest eras. Bombing of civilian populations; sinking of ships with children; killing people for their religion, race or color are the norm. The story line grips the audience from the start as Elisa on a lifeboat writes her last will and never slows down. The Thoene team provides a compassionate poignant historical as a few brave but frightened people poke an index finger in Hitler's eye.
