In each installment of 7 Hours, a character is visited by the enigmatic Thomas Constant, who makes a heart-stopping statement: “You are about to die. But you may choose from one of three options: Live seven more hours, travel back in time and relive seven hours, or accept the inevitable and die now.”
After a brutal attack left him without a limb and his team dead, former Green Beret Haytham “Hawk” Wilson is angry at life and God. Bitter, he pushes everyone out of his life. Every day he relives his decision to send the Afghan boy home rather than following orders to kill any who came upon his hidden team. So when on his deathbed at age 36, eaten alive by grief and regret, he’s offered the chance to relive any seven hours, Hawk is determined to go back, kill the boy, and save his team. The decision is simple . . . until he gets there.

First of all, I want to applaud Tyndall House Publishers for this series. It's unique and exciting to have a variety of authors providing bits and pieces to Thomas Constant's story! Haytham "Hawk" Wilson is a bitter man. He is the sole survivor of an attack that took place many years ago and his time on earth is ending. Thomas Constant pays him a visit and gives him the option of living seven more hours, going back in time and reliving seven hours, or accepting reality and dying now. Hawk jumps at the opportunity to go back to that fateful day and change the outcome. How can he convey what needs to be done without sounding like a crazy man? Is it really his place to change the outcome? He knows the boy has to die to save his team and he is ready for that challenge...until he arrives there and lets his emotions get involved. What would you do with 7 hours? I love how Ronie Kendig stuck with her traditional writing form to include military "heroes" in this story. She has a vast knowledge of military lifestyles and does an excellent job to portray thoughts and feelings that Hawk is experiencing during his 7 hours. I highly recommend this quick, yet riveting read by an amazing author!
Ronie writes the most amazing military heroes, and this novella is no exception. The time-travel/fantasy element was super fun, but the story was (as always) a poignant tale of redemption with a beautiful ending.
I enjoyed reading this short story by Ronie Kendig. It was a bit different than what I am used to read. It was about a former Green Beret, so thankfully Ronie sticked to the military. I love reading military fiction and therefore Whole Pieces did not disappoint. The reader gets rapid-fire action and reads about a heart rending decision. Haytham "Hawk" Wilson 'travels back in time' to relive 7 hours of his life. He will try to alter those 7 hours to save his team that died on a mission many years ago.
