Dawn of a Thousand Nights


A Story of Honor
by Tricia Goyer

I'll wait for you. That's what Libby Conners promised Dan Lukens as World War II tore the two pilots away from each other and the Hawaiian island where they'd fallen in love. Now, bound by duty to their country and buoyed by the hope that they will be together again, Dan and Libby face grueling tests on opposite sides of the world. Libby is pressed into service as one of the first female pilots to serve in a time of war, while Dan endures what would become the legendarily brutal Bataan Death March in the Philippines. With tragedy around every corner, the couple must look deep inside to find stamina and a faith that will endure the nightmare of the war.

If you haven't read this book, what are you waiting for? Get this book! It's a work of art. I loved it.
Superbly written, using actual historical facts as it's backbone. But it's not a dry dull history text, (not that I consider history dry) but a gripping tale of love and endurance and faith. Once you dive in you will immmedatiely fall in love with Dan and Libby. Such wonderful and endearing characters. There is plenty of humor and there will be tears. I cried when I found out the "why" of the title to the book. And I stayed late at work to finish it.
I consider Dawn of a Thousand Nights a must have for any history lover's bookshelf, as well as the WWII buffs out there. And if you just love a great story, you should read this book. It's on my keeper shelf and one I intend to enjoy again. (And read anything else the author writes.)

I just met Tricia Goyer at Mount Hermon! She's totally nice. She's also one of the fastest writers I've ever met.
