I selected Storm Warriors as the July read for our ladies' book club. We try to read a variety of Christian fiction, and this book sounded different from any we had read, plus it had great reviews. I wasn't sure about it, in the very beginning, but I had to persevere as it was my selection. Put on your life jacket and hold on! Ge ready to be amazed!! I highly recommend this book.
I was submerged into raging storms and thrust onto ships battling Mother Nature herself from the very first page. I was swept up into this astonishing story that went from personal tragedy to God's victory in Lionel Lunkins life.This riveting story shows how the enemy wanted to destroy Lionel life but God helped him overcome many horrendous circumstances. His passion to save others from shipwrecks brought a community together in the most unlikely way. I love how Lionel talks to himself and says, Now he wondered if it was an idea that had existed long before he had ever thought of it. Had he found it, or had it found him?Lionel is definitely a 'Rocky Balboa' type of guy - fighting for something he believes in with his whole heart. The scripture about laying your life down for another becomes real to Lionel as he embarks on this new lot in life.While reading this book, I experienced the ocean and storms like I have never done before. Jon Nappa has a way of putting you in the middle of the action. He has one of his characters say this about the ocean, We didnt kill your family. The sea rules the coast. The sea decides who lives and who dies. Its the way of things Because Jons story was based on real life events I couldnt stop thinking about the characters and circumstances long after reading the very last page. Jons story will change the way you look at lifeboats and life situations forever.
