The Sound of Distant Thunder is a story of love put to the test by faith and family relationships. Young love seems easy and limitless until real life begins to stand in the way of Katie Stuckey’s starry-eyed dreams. For Jonas, the man she wants to marry, becoming the man God wants him to be is complicated by his abolitionist convictions and his church’s pacifistic stand. The young couple have a great deal of growing up to do in the midst of the turmoil of the Civil War before the desires of their hearts can be met.
Jan Drexler’s tale carried my heart back to the wonders and worry of new love and left me satisfied in the end with the same hope all those beautiful young emotions always supply. This is the kind of sweet love story I will never outgrow.
