  • Finally True to Life Contemporary Fiction!

    From the first page, I was hooked. This realistic portrayal of a veteran from the U.S. Marines coming back to his country was emotionally charged from beginning to end. I must admit, at first I hated the bigoted and homophobic main protagonist, but somehow the author managed to convince me otherwise by creatively transforming him into a different person. Through the depictions and plot, I began to understand why this man carried these prejudices around with him, and when he basically repented and humbly exposed himself, I forgave him. This book is as much about the readers capacity for empathy and forgiveness, as it is about the ills of ignorant people who are destructive and negative. Great read!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Who am I? what is my purpose?

    This is a book that needs read. It is a book about a young veteran returning home with PTSD. This is something that many suffer from and it is highly misunderstood. This book starts in Afghanistan with four Marines, best friend, Thomas, James, Todd and Tucker on a mission they are hit by a roadside bomb. Thomas and James are instantly killed, Tucker is in critical and Todd walks away with minor injuries. After Todd returns home to New York he learns that Tucker has lost an arm, a leg and is in a wheelchair because of shrapnel close to organs in his body. Todd struggles with family matters, career choices and who he is and where he belongs. This is a story of a young marine adjusting to civilian life, his prejudices and fighting with PTSD. After a huge fight with his girlfriend he decides to visit his friend Tucker in Tennessee. He resists help from his friend, he drinks too much and he is not sure where he fits in life anymore. Tucker's family the Pearson's take in Todd and treat him like a son. He takes over as a manager of a low income housing unit in a crime ridden part of town and he begins to heal and to find himself. This book was emotional, enlightening, and very well written. I would recommend it to all. Thanks to C.J. Heigelmann, and Book Siren's for allowing me to read a copy for an honest review
