Even as a small child, Charlene had a big heart, broken when her father, Captain Patrick Morris, was lost to the Vietnam War. Nonetheless, when Charlene comes of age, she too becomes an Army officer. Her duties take her to Iraq and Afghanistan with visits to her father's cemetery plot in Des Moines along the way.
Bravery, courage, and honor were in her blood, and military service felt like the right thing to do. There is something that Captain Charlene Morris doesn't know yet-though she's about to find out.
That cemetery plot in Des Moines is empty, and her father is not dead. In fact, she soon runs into him in the flesh, and once the floodgates open, what pours out is a story that will catch you off guard and thoroughly captivate you until the end.
What happened to Patrick during the war-and afterward? How will Charlene come to terms with having him back from the dead? Is their story over-or has it only just begun?
