Thunder from the Sea

Thunder from the Sea is written by Joan Hiatt Harlow and a good book for ages 10 and up. It is set in Newfoundland, Canada in 1929. A thirteen-year old Tom Campbell found a dog. He named it Thunder. Bert, another character in the story wanted to fight Tom because Bert wanted the reward for finding the missing dog. There are a couple problems but I will only tell you one. Fiona's mom figured out that she is having a baby in the winter. Thunder and Tom help Fiona get to the doctor. But, during the trip over the ice, the ice cracked. How will they get over? Find out by reading this great historical fiction story. This is a must read book!

Thunder From the Sea

This is a good book for a kid who doesn't just love dogs but for a kid that loves a book with heroes with their hearts in the right place. When I read this book I could truly connect with the story and the feelings of the characters in it. This is a must-read for children of all ages!!!

Entertaining for even the younger listeners

I read "Thunder from the Sea" to my 5 and 6 year old boys. They listened intently from cover to cover and we are looking forward to reading another of Ms. Harlow's books.

Another winner from a gifted writer of historical fiction

Thunder From the Sea is another winner from a gifted writer of historical fiction for young people. As always,the writing is graceful, the plot is well-developed and suspenseful, and the characters are vibrant and real. The setting of Newfoundland and the historical background are fascinating and make this story quite unique. Most appealing of all, though, is the touching relationship between the orphan boy and the wonderful Newfoundland dog, and only a heart of stone will fail to be moved by the ending.
