Readers' Favorite awards five-star rating to Silver Lining in a Funnel Cloud

The online book review site Readers' Favorite has given a five-star rating to Silver Lining in a Funnel Cloud.

In a review published Sunday, the following assessment of the book was provided:

After the EF-5 tornado that almost destroyed Joplin, the citizens didn’t only face the challenge of returning to a normal life, but that of almost losing their city and school district. If standing together to fight for a cause unites people, it seems like the threat of the tornado divided the people of Joplin. In Silver Lining in a Funnel Cloud, author Randy Turner chronicles the events that took place behind the scenes and unveils facts about corruption, swindling, and a hardcore conspiracy that almost destroyed the city and the school district had it not been for a few ordinary heroes. The story will undoubtedly remind readers of Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy as they read about the City Manager Mark Rohr, C.J. Huff, and Wallace, and their behind-the-scenes activities that almost crippled the city.

Turner is a good writer who also knows how to do his research. He writes with consistency and simplicity, a style that will resonate with readers who are eager to know what happened to this city after the tornado. Apart from his beautiful prose, Turner has done a wonderful job in making the story read like fiction — interesting to watch how he builds the conflict in the story and how events are chronologically laid out with growing tension — and readers will undoubtedly be shocked when they get to know the real heroes of the story. Non-fiction lovers, especially those who have always wanted to know the true story of this beautiful and small city, will find Turner’s Silver Lining in a Funnel Cloud very interesting. A highly recommended book for those who love to read just for the sake of truth!

Silver Lining in a Funnel Cloud is available locally at Always Buying Books, Changing Hands Book Shoppe, and The Book Guy in Joplin, and Pat's Books in Carthage. It is also available in paperback and e-book formats from Amazon.com at the links below.
