Eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirms what millions of readers have already discovered—the Thoenes are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers’ minds and hearts.

Eventually her byline appeared in prestigious periodicals such as U.S. News and World Report, The American West, and The Saturday Evening Post. She also worked for John Wayne’s Batjac Productions (she’s best known as author of The Fall Guy) and ABC Circle Films as a writer and researcher.

Most Excellent! Jul 5, 2006
Excellent Book as are all the books in the Series. I have read ALL of the Zion Series by the Thoene's and am waiting now for the 5th in the AD Chronicles series. The Characters have become "members of my household"! Keep up the wonderful Books Bodie and Brock! (I feel like I know you) I actually have read both the Zion Covenant and The Zion Chronicles more than once and loved them each time, you have given me a deeper love for the Jewish People and the Land of Israel. Adonai put the love in my heart and you have helped nourish it with the indepth personalities you write about. Thanks again! I Can't recommend them enough, all are wonderful!
Awesome book! Aug 7, 1999
This book was awesome, in fact the whole series was wonderful! I enjoy all books that have a Nazie related topic.
When will we see a mini-series made of Theone's works? May 6, 1999
Every family should have this series as a family heirloom. I felt like I lost a friend when I finished the book. You grow so close to the characters. I would be thrilled to see any of her book series made into a movie mini-series. I can't get enough of her work. I've never been so impressed with another author. I would love to meet Bodie and Brock. They are spectacular. I can't wait to finish the series. I can tell you one thing, It'll be on my bookshelf as a keepsake. If I can pry it out of the hands of friends and family who want to read them as well. - Megan Villa
