War, trauma, destruction, death. Personal conflict and a love under threat from adversity and fate. Can they survive? Can their love?
US Marine Staff Sergeant Joe Anderson is home after having been missing for many months a shell of the man he once was, tormented by guilt, consumed by rage and with a terrible hunger for revenge.
Corporal Katie Anderson, nee Walker— How far will she go to help the man she loves? Is she willing to put her life on the line to stop Joe from his continuous journey toward mental destruction? Does she have the strength and the commitment to her man? Does she love him enough?
In Afghanistan Katie finds Joe and realizes that she has bitten off more than she can chew. Life in a combat zone is already tough. The Taliban have stepped up their attacks. There is no room for complacency, loss of focus or personal life issues. But, are there worse things than the enemy lining her up in their sights to kill her?
Can Joe find peace or will he die trying? Can Katie find the tenacity to bring Joe back to his senses, convince him that revenge will only get him killed? Is Katie’s love strong enough to overcome Joe’s hate, rage and guilt, his unwavering obsession for retribution—or will fate step in to destroy them before they can move toward healing Joe and healing themselves?
