Overall, I liked the book, the story was sweet and Brent seemed like a believable character. My only complaint is that the author felt the need to describe every minute detail. There's an art in giving the reader just enough information to tell your story clearly and allowing them the freedom to fill in the little nuances with their own imagination. I guess I'd rather not be spoon fed like that. Other than that, I really did enjoy the book and even cried in a few places.

This book was not what I expected. The story is heart breaking, soul searching, and soul baring. It is the truest form of the ultimate love story with the reality of war. Thank you for delivering such an honest journey into the lives of Brent and Erika. I don't think I have read another book out there that has touched me like this.

Excellently written explanation of the physical, emotional and spiritual conflicts experienced by all the heroes in all of our wars. A compelling description of the experiences of a wounded warrior struggling with both PTSD and survivors syndrome, interlaced with the realization that everyone needs someone sometime. An honorable, loyal, and intelligent look at the MOH and its affect
on not only the receiptiant but also on those touched by it. I truly hope that all of Mr. Scherer's efforts are as good as this one. Firmly believe everyone should take the opportunity to read this and convince others to do likewise.

Brent was damaged in body and soul. During his recovery, he meets Erika in a park. As their friendship develops, Brent shares the story of the day he was wounded. His story takes place over a number of days because the telling is difficult. The battle scenes are graphic, but done in such a way that I developed greater respect for those who serve. Brent is offered a medal, which he doesn't feel he deserves and I found that an interesting conflict as he worked toward acceptance. I thought the characters were well rounded and well developed. Well done.

This was a fantastic book. I'm not one for reading much either. I really enjoy the fact that this was the equivalent to a chick flick and a guy flick. A love story and a war movie all in one with a great twist at the end. Well done by this new author. Very descriptive and it made me exercise my mind. I want a movie for this book. :)

Wow...this book had been on my Kindle for close to a year and I thought I had lost it because my defective Kindle was replaced and it did not show up on the new one as other books did. This is a good story and leaves you guessing until the end.

When critically wounded veteran Brent Edwards takes his therapy walk to a secluded area in the park a beautiful woman, Erika, asks to share his bench. His self esteem is in the tank and he feels a great deal of unwarranted shame. He lives a solitary life believing that no woman would want what is left of him.

Erika has been through her own hell but she is just what the doctor orders to help Brent wrestle his demons and learn to live again. She is a beautiful, gentle, soft-spoken woman who soothes him like no one else can. Suspicions begin to cloud his mind with doubt and he contemplates why she loves him. He thinks she may want to seek her own fame since he is being honored at the White House. Something just seems a bit off to him.

This book will take you on a journey. I could not put it down until I was finished with it in the early morning hours.

I recommend this book unless you are like me and dislike the humiliation of being with a man who blatantly flirts and teases with other gals every time he is in public...with or without you. I did not think the 'harmless touching' with the waitress and the nurses and techs were harmless at all. For someone who was supposed to be such a hero, a good, caring, honest man, someone who wanted to have an exemplary reputation, why would he conduct himself in such a manner. Why was it necessary to have dinner with the woman he loved and then sit and flirt with the hostess and waitress and struggle to keep his eyes off them. What message does that send?Not a good one!!

The subject matter of this book made it worth the read. When I read the synopsis I thought I was going to absolutely love the story. Unfortunately the writing and lack of editing let it down. The punctuation around the dialogue was incorrectly punctuated and there were many typos (I'm being nice by saying they were typos -- once is a typo, four times is a spelling mistake). Words such as "pored", "hear" and "bare" were used instead of "poured", "here" and "bear" and after the second time I read some of these I was distracted so much by the errors that I had a hard time concentrating on the actual story. I found the story was a bit slow in places and there was too much description; however this was a minor issue and would be corrected by a decent editor.

Okay, enough of the negative stuff. The characters were likable and I really enjoyed the conclusion to the questions, "Who is Ericka and what are her motives?" Overall it was heartwarming and heartbreaking, and worth reading. It serves to remind and humble the reader, as some of the horrors of war and the long journey for returning veterans are highlighted in a sensitive way.

This is one of those books that I read and sincerely wish that the author would send it off to be professionally edited, as it could be outstanding.
