What can I say? Heidi J Thomas has triumphed again in her own unique way and once again she has left her characters forever in my heart. The nitty gritty, warts and all, tell it like it is story of Sergeant John McIntyre will make you smile, laugh, cry and also make you so angry. A gripping tale from page one, you will be unable to put it down as you follow John as he journeys through life in the army. It will not disappoint. Sergeant McIntyre - I salute you!

Not so fairA good book about relationships and how complicated they are. Add to that the Military and multiple deployments to all these wars we're fighting and you have the men and women coming home irreparably damaged. Well written from a professional soldier's POV.
