An easy-to-read book that takes the readers to the events that her family encountered throughout the tragedy that is common to most of the survivors. “Louder than Thunder” gives everyone the part of the story that has not been publicized, the story of ordinary individuals helping each other to survive and maintaining their dignity in spite of the unimaginable circumstance that befall them.

To the author, this book is her memoir that tells everyone how she withstood the devastating ordeal by understanding that God is still in control amidst the tragic event. Her faith enabled her to get through along with her loved ones.
