This book is The Godfather meets Amish.
I know right!? For someone who ranks Godfather II high on the movie list (please no arguments, that was the best one of the trilogy), this book had me hooked from the beginning. From unexpected allies, to heart breaking moments, to loveable characters, Melanie Dobson’s The Silent Order was a fantastic read! I had to tell P90X he was just going to have to wait until I finished the book.
If you think your family has drama, just join a mob family. That’ll keep you busy for years. That’s one thing I appreciated about The Silent Order, Dobson didn’t sacrifice the truth of the mob lifestyle and its reality to make the story come together where everything ends up like pockets full of sunshine.
Because if there’s one thing the Corleone family taught me, its that you need an epic movie soundtrack and family ties can be tossed in the wind.
But more than the crazy mob, there’s a beautiful picture of redemption and the power of forgiveness, blended together with Dobson’s creativity and stirring words.
I think I just might have to purchase this book…and also hope it gets made into a movie.
