The Sound of Distant Thunder by Jan Drexler

Katie Stuckey dreams of the day she can marry her sweetheart, Jonas Weaver, and move into their forever home as husband and wife. But Katie's dream world is shaken when Jonas goes against his Amish teachings and joins the war efforts. Jonas feels like it was his only choice to step in and take his brother's place as his name showed up on the draft list. Katie struggles to accept Jonas's decision and tries to muddle through life without him as she prays for the day of his return.

This book does a great job of focusing on a nearly impossible decision. When is it okay to go against what you've always known as right to sacrifice for the greater good?

I enjoyed the thought processes of the characters and appreciated the excellent historical research by the author in this book. I did feel like the beginning and middle of the book were better than the end. The end felt rushed to me, but it could just be because there is another book to follow in this series. I still look forward to reading the follow-up and finishing the journey with Jonas and Katie. Thank you very much to Revell for giving me the chance to review this book! These opinions are all my own.
