Blake Calder has come back to Scotland in search of an answer to the one question that has haunted him for almost twenty years. Being back in Greenoch, overlooking the Firth of Clyde, he remembers the events that led to him joining the Kings Own Calgary Regiment, the battles he fought, the love he found. Returning to the oak tree on the bluff where he and Ayne would sit together, he draws on the strength of his Uncle Stephen, his sister Mo and his many brothers, to face the truth about the only woman he would ever love. Why did he survive Dieppe, Ortona, Arezzo, when so many others perished? Why would a God he had been raised to love and trust allow this hell to happen?
The answers, he knows, are in Greenoch. Now he has to find the strength, or perhaps a kindred soul, to help him face those answers.

There is no way I can do a review for this book justice. I enjoyed it from start to finish. It was extremely well written. Returning to Scotland to a spot he shared with his love, Blake takes you back to the stories of his small town home life as he remembers the rough times, and then goes off to war (WWII). You can't help but to fall for Blake and feel for him for all he goes through with the tragedies of war and the joy and great turn of meeting a woman on foreign soil. The way the story is told leaves you guessing with each page why they aren't together and who is the woman he's talking to. I can't say any more without giving some of the story away. I truly looked forward to curling up with this every night & was sad when it was over, but not for how it ended. Great job!
