Destiny by Don Brown Book #Review


ABOUT BOOK: Three men. Three armies. One letter. One destiny.  
When World War II hits Walter Brewer's family in the worst possible way, he is torn between his love for two women, his family, and his country. A rural postal carrier in his hometown of Jamesville, North Carolina, Walter has no idea his life is about to become entwined with a Nazi officer and a Royal Naval commando. Will he survive his mission over France as a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne, or is the ultimate sacrifice Walter's destiny? 

This much-anticipated prequel to Don Brown's acclaimed Navy Justice series is packed with the ravages of love and war, romance and family, and ultimately the power of faith.
ABOUT AUTHOR DON BROWN: A former U.S. Navy JAG officer, Don is the author of the Navy Justice series and the Pacific Rim series. Paying no homage to political correctness, Don’s writing style is described as “gripping,” casting an entertaining and educational spin on a wide range of current issues, from radical Islamic infiltration of the military, to the explosive issue of gays in the military, to the modern day issues of presidential politics in the early twenty first century.  
Don graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1982, and after finishing law school, continued his post-graduate studies through the Naval War College, earning the Navy’s nonresident certificate in International Law. During his five years on active duty in the Navy, Don served in the Pentagon, was published in the Naval Law Review, and was also a recipient of the Navy Achievement Medal, the Navy Commendation Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal.

MY REVIEW-Don Brown is an author well known for writing military books that allow the reader to plunge right in. Destiny is a prequel to the Navy Justice series and I found it to be somewhat different. I actually had a hard time getting started but once I was enveloped in the story, I couldn't tear myself away. This is a very vivid story that paints pictures you will never be able to get out of your head. In my mind I can still see the Jewish Rabbi's daughter on the ground bleeding as the temple goes up in flames outside the house. It is that real as you read this book. I love how he intertwined all the characters together and we see how the choices we make mold our lives and the consequences that arise afterwards. Another thrilling novel from Don Brown!!
