Publisher's Summary

From multipublished Christian author Janice Thompson comes a story of faith and courage.

It's 1900 and Brent Murphy, a prodigal son, is disillusioned with New York and his life as a newspaperman. Drawn home to Galveston Island, Brent knows it is likely he will face rejection from his father. On Saturday, September 8, 1900, without warning, the citizens of Galveston Island are in for the fight of their lives when the hurricane of the century hits. In a single night of horror, more than 6,000 islanders lose their lives and countless others are left in devastation. Through the experience, Brent finally faces the truth of his own childhood and the stormy relationship he has with his parents. He finds the courage to write the story of his past and discovers a loving God.

About the author: Janice Hanna Thompson is the author of over 100 books for the Christian market.

    Story
    "Will the island survive?"

    When I got the chance to listen to a Janice Thompson audiobook I jumped at it, and with my fascination with historic hurricanes all it took was the title to grab my attention.

    Now, I've read a number of Janice Thompson's contemporary romantic comedies, and she is one of my favorite authors, but Hurricane just added to my appreciation of her talent. Hurricane isn't a typical Janice Thompson book and is more serious in nature. Talk about nature, wow, this book chronicles the events of the 1900 Galveston hurricane that wrought unimaginable damage and suffering. I had heard of the hurricane before but this book totally opened my eyes to the extent of it. Hurricane takes you through the super-peaceful days leading up to, through the hurricane, and then the aftermath. Through Janice Thompson's excellent prose and the narrator's voice I could almost feel the wind and taste the rising salt waters.

    One of my favorite things about the Audible audiobook is that, even though the book follows several characters both male and female, the narrator is a man. While listening I felt that Brent was actually the central character and that made me appreciate the narrator even more.

    Hurricane is an exciting, heart-wrenching, tale of love, sacrifice, and finding out what is most important. Whether read or listened to Janice Thompson's story of the 1900 Galveston Hurricane will linger in the mind long after...

    (I received an Audible copy of this from the author in exchange for my review. All opinions are entirely my own.)
