REVIEWS – Cross Currents
“Stunning and profoundly moving.” – National Geographic Traveler magazine, which named Cross Currents as its "Book of the Month"
“Wonderful!” – Chris Bohjalian, New York Times bestselling author of Midwives
“Gripping, moving, and ravishingly written, Shors’ latest is a stunning story of family, connection, and the astonishing power of nature.” – Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You
“Cross Currents is about the power of nature and the power of love – romantic, brotherly, and parental. You are held in suspense, watching the love between the characters grow, knowing that this love is going to be tested severely when the tsunami hits. And when it does, you are carried away by the clash of both forces in a maelstrom of riveting action. I loved this book.” – Karl Marlantes, New York Times bestselling author of Matterhorn
“Shors' fifth exotic novel is his best... Cross Currents skillfully springs emotional surprises... Gorgeously rendered.” – The Boulder Daily Camera
“John Shors has a great feeling for Thailand. The beauty of its geography and the pliant strength of its people are in every word of his novel, Cross Currents, which is set in the days just before the tsunami. The suspense around what will happen to his characters (each with a vivid history and set of troubles) makes for a supremely readable tale.” – Joan Silber, author of The Size of the World
“Cross Currents is an emotional and powerful novel, and one I would recommend in an instant!” – PeekingBetweenthePages.com
