“Fantastic. Boy did she do her research. I’m reading Storms From A Clear Sky a second time. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.” —Bob Harmon, Professor Emeritus of History Seattle University, who served in WWII at the Battle of the Bulge.
“Frisino’s fictional story becomes more real thanks to her painstaking research. She introduces her second book with a ‘thank you’ to the many men and women who shared their wartime experiences with her. Frisino has expertly woven many factual accounts into her tale, leading her characters on a journey into The War to End Wars. Storms is an experience that easily captures readers’ page-turning interest.” —Jean Godden, Former member of the Seattle City Council, Former journalist for Seattle Post-Intelligencer and Seattle Times
“Storms from a Clear Sky, the sequel to Orchids of War, was even more engaging than the first book. It is a story full of action, romance, and espionage. I can't imagine the enormous number of hours of reading and research Denise put into this project. Familiarity of the Pacific Northwest, especially the Puget Sound area, help place the reader into the story. Specific details of the Japanese spy ring and development of the characters makes this a page-turner. I want to see what comes next.” —Alenka
