Completely startled, his mouth still agape, Jeff glanced quickly along the coastline, trying to pinpoint the origin of the explosions. His eyes finally came to rest at a point on the far left of his vision and opened in utter horror and disbelief as they watched the giant superstructure of the Forth Rail Bridge sink slowly and gracefully into a steaming sea; large orange flames licked around those parts not yet submerged. ~excerpt from The Olive Branch.
The communists have joined forces and are taking over Eastern Europe. Will they succeed? The Olive Branch has all the emotion, suffering and drama that come with war. Once again master storyteller, Brendan Gisby, brings us another amazing story in The Olive Branch. With the author’s talents for weaving a good story we feel despair and love. We feel the defiance of patriotism and the pain of torture. The reader can actually hear the pounding, crashing and the shrill squeal of bombs as they fly through the air. We watch through the eyes of Jeff, as the world he knows and loves, crumbles around him. We witness the horror of sexual abuse at any evil soldiers’ whim. What did Eastern Europe do to deserve such treatment?
In an attempt to save the peaceful world they know, small bands of resistance groups are springing up. Will they manage to do this?
I’m not fond of war stories but I highly recommend The Olive Branch. Through Brendan Gisby’s descriptive talents, he takes you through the range of emotions the characters feel. You actually experience what they experience. The characters are just ordinary people in an extra-ordinary position. They’re so relatable that I actually felt like I knew the characters!
What was best about The Olive Branch is the fact that Mr. Gisby shows us that something good can even come out of something bad. In the book we witness true love blossom and develop.
