Glimpse of Sunlight, book#1 of the Jonathan Dickinson Odyssey


Glimpse of Sunlight

”A brilliant marine archaeologist… A needy college student… A ruthless tycoon… In 1696 the sailing ship Mystique sank and took with it Jonathan Dickinson’s gold, diamonds, and a treasury of riches. Now the wreck believed to be the Mystique remains shrouded in mystery until an ancient journal sheds light on its location, but a dispute over ownership blocks the excavation. In a fight against time with the threat of Jamaica’s colorful past overpowering the present, three powerful men lay claim to the sunken treasure. The struggle that ensues pits them against one another as 400 years of Jamaica’s brutal history is revealed. In a sweeping saga stretching back to 17th Century Africa and the British Isles, these three adventurers and their forebears-an ex-slave, a notorious pirate and a wealthy merchant-battle for ownership of the treasure and are drawn into the grit and greed of 17th Century Port Royal, Jamaica the wickedest city known to mankind. When their pursuit leads to chaos, kidnapping and murder, the question becomes, who will prevail?

This book is amazing. Once I began reading it I couldn’t put it down. The writing is very descriptive and allows you to envision the scene set. All of the illustrations are done wonderfully and are very detailed. The characters in the book are interesting and intriguing, making you want to know what happens to them throughout their lives. This book is full of events that have you on the edge of your seat as you read wondering what will happen next. I can’t wait to read the rest of the trilogy. T…more

This is one of the best books I’ve read recently. The story captivates you from the beginning as you follow the lives of its characters, and you feel as if you are part of their lives! Leona and Glenn have created a best seller…..a Must read! The illustrations by Steve let you visual the story as it unfolds.

Don’t let the first few chapters confuse you. Starts out slow with introductions, then it’s action packed. I recommend it.

Until I read this book, I had no idea that so much occurred in the Caribbean during the 17th century. I knew about the pirates, but not about the mass destruction by man, society and nature. The earthquake of 1692 killed thousands of people. Leona Bodie and GE Gardiner have crafted a magnificent story. The books is full of so much action and drama that it was difficult to put the book down. A true thriller based on life of Jonathan Dickinson. Excited for the next book in the trilogy!

Historical fiction is not my genre of choice. However, this novel is a thriller. After I got into it, it was hard to put down. The characters are deep and the action strong. I did not know that Port Royal Jamaica suffered so many tragedies. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes action.

This is the kind of historical fiction I love. It’s a thriller. The story grabbed me from the beginning. The characters are deep and the authors have created images I will not soon forget. The action is nonstop. It’s a page turner. I can’t wait for the next adventure in this trilogy. There’s even a few light moments in amongst all the conflict that has been crafted into this novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST Book of the YEAR!, April 3, 2014

I don’t think too many people know about Jonathan Dickinson. I read his Journal in college, but have not heard about him since. I cannot believe that it’s taken this long for someone to recognize his importance in the 17th century. Glimpse of Sunlight is a wonderful tale about his life before Jonathan Dickinson traveled to America. Leona Bodie and GE Gardiner have brought back some emotions about the fate of slaves, indentured servants, and in those scorned by the plantation owners and Pirates in the Caribbean. The illustrations bring their words to life. What a wonderful story. I can’t wait until the next book is published.
