"... Keep Forever is an incredible tale full of warmth, love, heartbreak and hope. We highly recommend picking up Alexa Kingaard's debut novel!" -Meagan Hurn, Hurn Publishing, 5-Star Goodread's Review
"...Bittersweet, emotionally accurate and never over-sensationalized, author Alexa Kingaard has created a beautiful work of interpersonal drama set during one of the most harrowing periods of recent world history. The anguish that the soldiers returning fromVietnam feel, and the scars that plague them for the rest of their lives, isportrayed artfully through vivid descriptions, and dialogue and internal narrative that brings us close to the hearts and minds of the central characters. For fans of historical fiction which also has plenty of heart and realism, Keep Forever is sure to be a novel that will be read and re-read for a long time to come." -K.C. Finn, 5-Star Review Reader's Favorite
"... Keep Forever paints a vivid picture of the returning Vietnam survivors and the way war changed their lives forever. I found myself crying for Paul, Elizabeth, and the children and smiling when good things came to them. Alexa Kingaard has written a beautiful tribute in a well-told fictional setting"-T. LoPreto, 5-Star Review Reader's Favorite
"Keep Forever will help them visualize it (Vietnam) more fully and better understand how these vets feel when they finally come home. A thought from another book comes to mind as you close the pages of Keep Forever: the true measure of a person's value is determined by who they are, not what they do. Those are the kind of people you will read about in this excellent first novel." -Viga Boland for Readers' Favorite
About the Author
A realtor for fifteen years, she remains involved with her profession and praises her brokers and clients for giving her the nod to be creative. She gives all the credit for completing KEEP FOREVER to her inspiration and late ex-husband, Jeff, who battled the residual effects of the Vietnam War for decades after his return. In her debut novel, Alexa creates an intimate portrait of a family dealing with the unseen wounds of a Vietnam Veteran and his lifetime struggle with PTSD.
Although the story is fictional, she has tapped the memory of her own experiences to tell a compelling, sensitive account of the emotional turmoil soldiers endure, and the collateral damage created for their wives and children. "I believe anyone who has known a veteran or active member of our armed services will be able to relate, regardless of the conflict," she states. "The injuries are an instant replay, noticeable or disguised, and the endurance test of all our military men and women is nothing short of heroic." This story will capture your heart. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
