Publisher's Summary

The diagnosis of a chronic stomach condition leaves 32-year-old Sergeant Jed Cooper with little choice but to call time on his Army career. Then on the dusty streets of Kirkuk, an ambush gone tragically wrong decimates his team, and he returns to the US with a shattered leg and the memory of his best friend dying in his arms.
Life in his sleepy hometown proves intolerable until he finds solace in a lakeside cabin with vivacious young carpenter, Max O'Dair. In the shadow of the epilepsy that periodically plagues Max, he and Jed form an unspoken bond. After a late night episode, Jed realizes how much Max means to him, and life has taught him not to waste time.
But the lines between contentment and complacency are blurred. Things left hidden resurface to tear through their world, and before they can repair the damage, death comes to call again. Faces, past and present, rally around them to weather the storm, but before long, they are left with only love.

Nice slow burn

I really enjoyed this military hurt/comfort read. Ms Leigh is a really talented writer and this is a really good story. Be warned it has some horrific war scenes and a lot of flashbacks. Sometimes it made it hard to tell whether something was a flashback or present day. But not too bad. It only lost a star because it was REALLY slow for me and a lot of men not expressing their feelings to each other, just in their heads. I'm not a fan of that; I like feelings being expressed verbally to the person you are suppose to love. But if are a fan of the slow burn, you will really like it. The narrator does a great job and has a little more diversity in his voices than other books I've listened to by him. All in all worth a credit.

Very well written and narrated.

As a vet of Iraq this story was well written. The author knew all the nuances of American military life and did a great job of brining it to the listener.
