Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you want a creative, informative, emotional,and intriguing storyabout the conflicts and drama people face day to day in Afghanistan, as well as connect with characters who have to kill and love all within the same few moments, you'll thoroughly enjoy thisnovel. The writing is wonderful, and even though the topic is one I'mnot often a frequent reader of, it brilliantly shows off the author'stalents. Great book to experience something different than a traditional suspense or mystery read. Quite literary." (J. Cudney, Author, Blogger, Book Reviewer)
.
Silent Heroes is areality-inspired story about the U.S. Marines' selfless fighting in theAfghanistan war. Far away from home, they start a new family based oncamaraderie, a vow to protect the innocent lives at stake and acceptingthe sacrifice that comes with it.

The story also portreys lifeon the other side of the trenches.Taliban soldiers oppressing their ownkind for political, national or religious reasons.

The Plot

A book about the dangers of doing the right thing, friendship in the most unexpected places, loyalty and betrayal, family, devotion, trauma.

It speaks to the readers on so many levels, but the emotional response is the most overwhelming. Especially knowing that right now,there are real soldiers living the same destiny, missing their families, seeing their mates die and committing themselves to the same sacrifice.

Silent Heroes makes you value moreeverything that you have right now, everyone that is close to you. Itdefinitely struck a chord inside me as my father is in the militaryhimself. Bravery like that is rare nowadays. Selflessness even more so.

A barbaric regime or an existence bereft of freewill shouldn't exist. Man and dog shouldn't fight side by side, putting their lives at stakeamidst explosives. They should enjoy their life together in the comfortof their home. In a time of peace.

Silent Heroes is a story of loss, perpetual tragedy, and hope."
(Crissu for Book Review Hub)

From the Author

I think that spiritually speaking religion has a lovely meaning andit does contribute to the molding of our identity, weather we choose toembrace it or not.
But the political religion, like the aftermath of the terroristattacks on 9/11, has stirred the local fundamentalists and, on thebackdrop of an already troubled country that had seen centuries offoreign abuse, things went downhill and snowballed, pulling along thecivilians - as always.
In an attempt to gain control over their country, once and for all,these fundamentalists have abused religious rituals and have turnedtheir spiritual religion into the same political weapon that centuriesof foreign vanquishers had already used against their people.

What I tried to convey through Silent Heroes is that allthose impacted by war are, at the end of a fighting day, human beingwith dreams and families. War, although in different ways, it impactsall those involved. A war's consequences, like the shadow of anightmare, reach far beyond the battlefield.
Perhaps being a woman that writes about war I couldn't ignore myinner voice speaking for the daughter, the wife, and the mother in me.

Thank you for choosing Silent Heroes.
