*** ARC Received for Honest Review ***
I felt that this book is so relevant today regarding the struggle that a lot of Veterans face returning from combat. The fight that Noah goes through battling his physical and mental demons following his leaving the military is insightful and heartbreaking to read about. I have always known about the high rate of suicide and struggle with depression and PTSD of military persons returning from combat, but Laura makes it so personal and real with Noah.
The relationship that blooms from a deep friendship and the realization of what has always been there between Kristina and Noah is beautiful to read about. Mental illness in general is such a hard topic to address and Laura is able to do so from a few different aspects, and she does it so well. Great read. (Review by Terri “Jane”)
