“A heart-rending tale both brutal and beautiful.” –KIRKUS REVIEWS
When Iraq War veteran Jacob Miranda returns home for good following the end of his enlistment, he finds that he has trouble reintegrating into the life he’d left behind before ever going off to the Army. Increasingly finding himself unable to cope in the aftermath of the IED blast which nearly killed him and claimed the lives of five of his brothers-in-arms, Jacob begins blaming himself for what he perceives as his personal failure to protect his men and isolates himself from his loved ones, turning instead to alcohol—the only refuge able to lessen his pain. Jacob’s self-destructive tendencies nearly lead him to utter ruin, but his saving grace arrives in the form of childhood best friend, Maddie, whose comfort and love finally give him the strength to rise above his inner demons and find purpose and meaning in an existence which he’d all but given up on.
