Publisher's Description

For fans of scrupulously researched historical fiction, Tricia Goyer releases Dawn of a Thousand Nights. Following on the heels of Goyer's From Dust and Ashes and Night Song, readers journey with Dan Fletcher and Libby Conner, both U.S. pilots fighting in WWII's Pacific Theater. Fletcher is captured by the Japanese and is forced to endure the horror of the Bataan Death March in the Philippines. It is here that he encounters Natsu Hidiki, a guard whose nagging conscience won't let him ignore the human degradation in which he is participating. Libby Conner is a WASP (Women's Air Force Service Pilot), who ferries military planes between Hawaii and the South Pacific. By the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor, she has turned the head of Fletcher in no small way. Readers will be captivated by this tale of dignity and honor triumphing in the midst of a very dark time in history.

    WOW! What an amazing read! I am completely awestruck. The thing I loved most about this story is that it shows how the light of Jesus can shine in the darkest places. I was completely swept into another time and place while reading this book. What a compelling, fascinating, breathtaking and sometimes heartbreaking read! I loved the ending! I just cannot say enough good things about this book! This story will stay with me for years to come!

    I have read four of Tricia Goyers novels about WWII so far and look to acquiring the rest. Her characters are fiction, but there is solid truth of what the war and aftermath was like. She has several testimonials from military personnel who were actually there. I recommend ALL of here WWII books.

    "Dawn of a Thousand Nights" is a touching story of new love and the war that threatens to tear that love appart. The main characters, both pilots, are separated by the war just as they decide to give their hearts to each other. The book follows the trials and truimphs of each person as they struggle to find their way back to each other and end up finding a part of themselves in the process. I found "Dawn..." a fantastic story of love, heartache, dedication and finding the way back to God.

    Dawn of a Thousand Nights is a fictional novel with the historical backdrop of World War II. Tricia Goyer gives us the subtext of the story with the subtitle, A Story of Honor. The novel revolves around a trio of main characters: two American pilots (one man and one women) and a Japanese interpreter. All three are fully focused at the beginning of the book with the desire to help and serve their respective countries. As the story unfolds, the characters individually advance through a wide-ranging emotional spectrum from bitter hatred against the enemy, to fear, love, despair, the works. But it all comes back around to honor how each handles the circumstances of their lives in the midst of a devastating war. These are not vague one-dimensional characters dropped into a cheap story line. Quite the opposite - Dawn of a Thousand Nights is multi-dimensional and richly detailed with accurate period references. The novel focuses on specific events of WWII in the Pacific Theater: the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese, the battle for supremacy in the Philippines, the Bataan Death March. And in the same time frame on the west coast of America, a separate but equally important battle is fought in the arena of ideas: specifically, in regards to the use of women as pilots in the war. The expanded role of women during WWII emphasizes their vast and valuable contributions to the war effort in their own right.Dawn of a Thousand Nights is an amazing read bittersweet at times, yet complex and satisfying through and through. Tricia Goyer is an incredibly talented writer. She is able to deliver past history as if it were fresh news, all the while weaving a diverse mix of romance, patriotism, friendship, courage and drama into a resonant cast of characters. This novel will definitely stand the test of time as a stand-out work from a real stand-up author.

    Dawn of a Thousand Nights is a story of survival and hope in God birthed during the most horrible of circumstances. It some ways this story reminded me of Pearl Harbor, only it was so much better. Unlike the movie, this story won't leave you feeling cheated at the end when the woman ends up with the wrong man. Libby remained faithful to Dan and though lonely at times, she trusted in God to see her through hard times. Times when she was tempted to doubt. Personal faith was born through their adversity, rather than bitterness which is often cultivated by unfair circumstances. It is during these trying times that Libby and Dan individually seek God to meet their deepest needs. I felt for Dan as he watched one buddy after another die while he lived on, barely. The Lord was with him even in the darkest places, and like Deitrich Bonhoffer, he ministered to those who needed hope even while he suffered in prison. What an inspiring novel. At times the reality of the story was so horrible I had to take a mental breather, but otherwise I couldn't put this story down. Goyer brings WWII to life when she highlights the suffering of American servicemen in the Philippines. Their plight is often forgotten when people recall the heroes and circumstances of WWII. Overall, this story is the best accounting of the war in the Pacific that I've ever read. I can't wait for Tricia's next book to come out. It's guaranteed to be an intense emotional ride, just like her first two books. And they keep getting better. How does she do that? :)
