Solar Flare

Solar Flare
A Novel
By Larry Burkett

Some years back I read this book. The author was still alive then. He was known for writing study books on finances. One day I was in the bookstore and came across a New Novel written by Larry Burkett. I had just finished his study on finances. So, I purchased the book. Opened it's pages and started reading. Wow, I could not put it down!!
The story opens up in a College Astronomy Classroom with Professor Jason Hobart teaching. Subject of the day, solar magnetosphere dislocation- in layman terms solar flares. Could a massive Solar Flare effect the Earth's weather? This question is the basis of the book. For the next 425 pages the effects unfold. You will read about Jason Hobart's life and get to know him intimately. How he thinks, his duty to country, how he works with the President of the United States and others on a Plan to save the Earth from total disaster.
Can a Massive Solar Flare Take us back to a time when there were no cars, no internet, no radios, no food, and no electricity. A world of Horse and Buggies and primitive living.
After reading Solar Flare you will have a different view of our Sky.

Note: My father, who is not a reader, started reading this book and could not put it down!! He was reading it in bed, Mom said "...what are you reading? It must be good". If my father was inspired to read it than it must be a keeper. It's on my library shelf indeed.
