Wow! Such a powerful story. I don't think there is anyone out there who isn't familiar with PTSD, but unless someone you know is dealing with it, it's just a term. Battlefield of the Heart shows you what the reality of dealing with PTSD really means. How it affects the person who has it, as well as their family, girlfriend or spouse and friends. It shows how powerful love and support can be and the difference it can make in someones life. I love relationship-driven stories and that's just what I found here. I got totally lost in the lives of these folks, which to me, means great writing. I don't know if I would be as strong as Cindy, but when you're where God wants you to be you feel peace, just like Cindy did. She truly felt that the Lord wanted her with Danny. God gives each of us unique strengths and, looking at it from Danny's point of view, you understand how thankful he was that the Lord sent him Cindy. This really was a beautiful and inspirational story that I would definitely recommend. I hated to see it end and would love to have a follow-up of Danny and Cindy as well as their friends, who really became my friends too. Battlefield of the Heart is the perfect title for this unforgettable tale.
"Battlefield of the Heart" by E.A. West is a lovely homage to the American soldier and a heartwarming romance. Cindy Waymire meets Danny Flynn under rather unusual circumstances that start this educational train rolling. Danny suffers from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of his service to the USA in the Army during his tours overseas. What begins for Cindy as a research project for a sociology paper becomes a greater education that leads to true friendships and true love.
The author's research on PTSD is presented in such a way that is both educational and entertaining - although I almost hate to use a word like "entertaining" to describe this book. It is a heartfelt tribute to the soldiers who serve our nation and the people who love them. Every reader will come away from this book with a greater awareness of the plight of soldiers attempting to reintegrate into civilian life.
I remember reading the premise to the book and thinking, 'oh this will be interesting', but it goes WAY beyond interesting.
E.A. West has put together not only a beautifully adorable couple with Cindy and Danny, but also a wonderful group of supporting characters.
The story line builds as you are immediately drawn to Cindy and Danny and what at first starts out as an innocent friendship and blossoms into a deep, supporting relationship.
At one point I even found myself tearing up with Cindy as Danny shared what he was going through, dealing with his PTSD.
Different from any other story I've read before, Battlefield of the Heart is a must read.
What was fascinating was the topic of veterans adjusting to civilian life, from college educations to recovering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I'm glad I read this because of the insight it gave into the emotional, physical and spiritual struggles of men and women who have served our country, and would recommend it simply on that basis.
