When Murray Pura's The Wings of Morning was released, one of his rave reviews came from Romantic Times magazine:

"Pura has created one of the finest stories of Amish fiction I have ever read....The reader will be applauding the exceptional writing and the cast of characters demands an encore performance."

Here is that encore performance.

In the third book in his Snapshots of History series, Murray brings back Jude and Lyyndaya Whetstone, the beloved lead characters in The Wings of Morning.

The year is 1941 and Jude and Lyyndy, with their adult daughter, Rebecca, are summoned to far-off, exotic Honolulu where Rebecca, a flyer like her father, meets a likeable young pilot. The two enjoy a friendship that seems to be turning into something more serious.....until Sunday, December 7, 1941 dawns on the Hawaiian Islands.

Readers who love the simplicity of the Amish, a good romance, and a dramatic historical setting are in for a treat with Whispers of a New Dawn.

Book Three in the Snapshots of History series

Review:

"Author Murray Pura approaches the Amish culture with a compassionate but realistic eye. This is a solid story that includes the elements of adventure and romance while addressing the horrors of war, the pain of loved ones lost to death and others lost to a difference in belief. Whispers of a New Dawn was read and enjoyed by two people in our home. We then had some intense conversations regarding our own beliefs and convictions. I hope you will be stirred to think about your own spiritual condition and will bloom gloriously."
--JudyAnn Lorenz, BarJD Communications

"Whispers of a New Dawn is another superb work of Christian fiction by Murray Pura. Even though we know how the history of Pearl Harbor played out on December 7, 1941, we are still kept in suspense as to how the events of that day played out for each character. Murray also has enough romance in the story to keep his female audience captured, while adding an adequate amount of fast-paced action for the men. He does a fine job of exploring the emotions and thoughts of the Amish who leave their community and culture and embark on a life in the world outside their own without losing their faith in the one true God who holds them no matter where they may go."
--Russ Friesen
