    I'm not drawn to soldier stories. However, as I was asked to panel a discussion of this Silicon Valley Reads choice, I searched out this book. Sue Diaz is a journalist and Mother, and she received a Nobel prize for her musings/concerns/prayers while her son was stationed in Iraq (The "Triangle of Death" where 20% of soldiers did not return.) The book represents a compilation of these articles. The book also represents the struggle of every Mother trying to let go of her child, but never really accomplishing that Herculean task. While I do not have a child in the services, I found that with each turn of the page, I was nodding, smiling, crying. It's a lovely book.

    It Touches All of Us

    Minefields of the Heart is a beautifully written, very important book. Sue Diaz has expressed what so many families of combat soldiers experience, and she has given the rest of us greater insight into what war really means. Moreover, the book is a great read.
