Anger, Fear, Running . . . Hope, Love, Home
Jane and Seth have been engaged almost a year when he returns home from Iraq, a quadriplegic . . . a carpenter by trade, unable to use his hands or move . . . Seth is deeply depressed and when Jane arrives at the VA hospital, he sends her away . . . Jane keeps returning, becoming friends with Truman Rockaway, a veteran and retired doctor and with Jon-Paul, the blind lawyer who entertains the wounded veterans by playing the piano for them . . . eventually pulling Seth out of his depressed shell by starting up a chess tournament . . . then there's Hoboken and Sausalito, the two cousins from Uganda who work at the VA hospital while going to nursing school . . . they are the cut-ups and bring laughs to the otherwise dreary surroundings . . . Traveler's Rest is a story of journeys . . . for Seth, for Jane, for Truman and even for Jon-Paul . . . gently and beautifully told, with no easy answers for suffering, yet comfort and balm for souls who seek respite . . . and a time and a season for healing . . . for hope and for coming home . . .
