I have often heard of PTSD but since reading this book I heave a greater understanding for what men and women goes through once the join normal civilian life. Nate Langley was willing to seek help and with a strong support system overcome his problems so that he good fit in the normal day to day life. Although not completely healed and as I understand it from the writer a person with this disorder never really do, he learned to manage and found his strength in the Almighty. His refuge and Strong Tower.
This book really captured life in a small town in Texas. From the football fanatics with homecoming mums, to the UT/A&M rivalry, and the everyday workings of a ranch, this author really got it right. (By the way, I'm wearing my UT shirt as I write this review!) I really enjoyed reading about PTSD with a returning soldier, but also appreciated the emotional difficulties that the lead female character had from a failed marriage. Really good and I will probably read the rest in the series!
I loved this book right from the first chapter! I got so caught up in Nate's struggle with PTSD to the point of crying right along with him! The romance between him and Jenna, I felt, was really secondary to the main story but excellent as well. Loved it! This was a new author for me... I look forward to reading the rest of her books.
