From the Author
Returningto the Treading Water/Marking Timeworld was like spending time with precious old friends. Most of you know thatJack Harrington was my very first fictional character, so it was a great thrillfor me to bring him back in Coming Home.I enjoyed the themes of forgiveness and redemption in this book, as well as thegrowth the characters experienced in the decade between Marking Time and Coming Home.
