Westward Lies the Sun (A Novel) by Robert H. Kono is an epic novel blending historical fiction of the Japanese internment camps during WWII with the grandeur of love, romance, legacy, Samurai and Japanese heritage with the question of God and the reality of the spiritual realm.
.
The novel unfolds revealing Greg, his life and past, as the author captures each time period of his life well. Greg’s conversations with his friends and his own self-doubt being a Japanese American experiencing his own subculture being Japanese, which has caused Greg to question his own self-worth stemming from teenage years. Feeling culturally divided coupled with the trauma he had to endure throughout his growing up years, he feels displaced culturally. “He felt as though he were a pioneer or explorer, out to hack his way through the wilderness of the identity question.” (p. 11) This is just an example of the writer’s way of conveying this mental tug-of-war within the main character, Greg.
.
From a Christian perspective, the novel speaks on Greg’s personal reflections upon God, His existence and why bad things happen upon the Earth without cramming the Christian religion down one’s throat. This is much appreciated as the author gives enough information and Scripture to just make readers “think for themselves.”
.
Greg, as a staunch humanist, spends time with his four friends at their poker games that reveal much conversation about God. The book reveals a dark past for Greg and his family, being of Japanese descent during WWII and the horror of the camps. Their only crime, being Japanese, Greg reveals the loss of a family heirloom, in which he goes searching for. The epic continues as Greg and his family survive a shipwreck on an island, which ends up giving them life amid their tragedy. This book is a movie in the making with a dreamy, mysterious, and memorable title!
.
With a beautiful ending, surprises and twists along the way, the book keeps the attention of readers. I was hooked from chapter one. The beautiful descriptions of the lake and the cultural tensions that the Japanese experienced during the time of WWII provide an interesting backdrop. The author gives readers a true appreciation for family, love, patriotism, combined with dark overtones of racism prevalent during the WWII era, while also sharing Christianity in such a way that makes sense, giving equity a voice. 
.
An absolutely fascinating novel with an epic title made for the big screen!

You may get your copy of Westward Lies the Sun at Amazon and in Kindle as a download.

Title: Westward Lies the Sun ( A Novel)

Christopher D. Stanley, a New Testament scholar who specializes in the social and religious history of early Christianity, brings the world of Paul and the early church to life in his new historical fiction trilogy, “A Slave’s Story.”  See how you can win a free Kindle copy of the first book in the series! 
.
The first two books, A Rooster for Asklepios and A Bull for Pluto, follow the lives of two men at opposite ends of the social structure, a slave and an aristocrat, as they journey across first-century Asia Minor (modern Turkey) in a desperate quest for healing.  
.
Religion—Greek, Roman, Jewish, and Christian—plays a vital role in the series as Stanley paints a realistic and historically accurate picture of the competition that the apostle Paul faced as he sought to spread the message about Jesus in a pagan culture.  Along the way, he helps readers to see how odd Christianity appeared in a world where the worship of many gods was woven into every facet of life and the idea of a Jewish Messiah bringing salvation from sin and judgment was a foreign concept.  

.
Countless other aspects of life in the Roman world are vividly illustrated in this fascinating and well-researched series that is receiving five-star reviews on Amazon from both scholars and ordinary readers.  The reviews, which include more information about the contents of the books and their relevance for early Christianity, can be viewed 
A Rooster for Asklepios: A Slave's Story, Book 1 and at A Bull For Pluto: A Slave's Story, Book 2.  
.
Sound interesting?  Be one of 100 lucky people who get to read it for free!  The author is giving away 100 free copies of the Kindle version of A Rooster for Asklepios during the month of October through a Goodreads Giveaway.  But you’ll have to act quickly since the contest ends on October 31.  To enter the Giveaway, go to Book Giveaway For A Rooster for Asklepios: A Slave's Story, Book 1.

It's been two thousand years since the Son of God came into the world. And yet, regrettably, today's leading pastors and theologians still can't agree on the meaning and purpose of His coming. In this book, Maurie Daigneau offers a deeply personal, well-researched, and biblically sound and encouraging solution to that problem. The Gospel You've Never Heard is an invitation to all who want to live their lives in accordance with the will of God and make their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ the priority of their lives.
.
A highly recommended must read book. You may order your copy of The Gospel You've Never Heard: An Understanding That Will Change Yo.... Be sure to visit the author at his website, Maurie Daigneau.
