Reviews - What do customers think about Secret Place of Thunder (Cheney Duvall, M.D. Series #5) (Book 5)?
The Best Sep 7, 2001
This was in my opinion, the best book in the series. The setting is absolutely captivating and it makes the whole story take on an interesting, refreshing air. For me as a Christian, the part with the voodoo priestess was very thought provoking. The part also showed that Shiloh still had some major weaknesses and supports Cheney's later reasons for keeping her distance from him in the area of romance. The aunts were well-written, lovable and sometimes humorous characters. You won't want to miss the funny part later on in the book that invloves Shiloh and hairpins.
The Secret is Out! May 21, 2001
Great story:ghosts, mystery, romance. However, an interpreter would be nice. Or even a footnote translation.
Great story! May 5, 2001
This book introduces several new characters that you'll get to know as well as the main characters in the 4 previous books. It takes place at a Louisiana plantation owned by Cheney's great-aunts Marye and Elyse.
Aunt Elyse is sometimes absent-minded, but is funny and loveable. Aunt Marye, in contrast, seems overly strict, but deep down loves her visiting relatives and their friends. The lovestruck Chloe, a daughter of Aunt Elyse and Aunt Marye's butler and cook, chases after Shiloh so openly that I wanted to smack her, but she gets what she deserves in the end, especially when they discover she's helping the voodoo group trying to take over the plantation.
Awesome book! Mar 6, 2000
This is an excellent series and I enjoyed this book especially. The chapter where the family prepares to "fight against the powers and pricipalities" was well written, showing the importance of faith and honesty. I am anxiously awaiting #8, what will happen between Cheney and Shilo next? If you like this book check out "The Covenant of Love", also by Gilbert Morris.
AN AWESOME BOOK I CAN'T WAIT TILL #8 Oct 4, 1999
I read this book and finished in 2 days! I loved it. My sister gave me #6 and I finished it in 3 days. I had to buy #7 (my favorite) and loved it also. This is a great series. I recommend this to almost anybody.
