Joy Avery Melville’s novel has many memorable characters, some are humans, and a few are service animals who all figure in this emotional, moving story like a well-rehearsed symphony.
As you quickly turn the pages with Joy Avery Melville’s skilled writing, the story comes to life. We get to experience the character’s joys, anguish, and application of faith in times of turmoil. And, at the close of the story, have a favorite character or two, or more and are left wanting to see what happens with the characters just a while longer. All because you don’t want the story to end.
This is the first in the Operation Return to Peace series, and I’m looking forward to reading the next novel and catching up with these characters. It would be like speaking with an old, welcome, friend.
I received a copy of this book and was under no obligation to write nor post a review.
As Tori explores her fears, insecurity, and guilt over the loss of battle buddies through therapy, she slowly begins to build relationships with those around her, including Griffin McKay, who trains therapy dogs. Griffin struggles with his own issues, and together they experience pain, grief, hardship, and ultimately hope for a future.
Joy Avery Melville defines her characters well, digging deep into their wounds and exposing the purulence that lies within and the long process required to restore optimum health. She portrays their individual faith journeys, exposing doubts, distrust, and finally assurance of God’s love.
During this time of national unrest, this book brings to light the sacrifices our wounded warriors make to protect our freedoms and the inner battles they continue to face upon their return home.
Sown in Peace is a must read for anyone who is or knows a veteran who lives with physical, emotional, or psychological battle scars.
This true to life story will tug at readers’ heart strings and bring deeper understanding of PTSD and all that veterans endure after their military career. There is an underwritten theme of God’s healing love, forgiveness to bring peace, joy and happiness that nothing else can give.
I received a complimentary ARC e-book from the author and was under no obligation to write a positive review. I have shared my own personal opinion.
Victoria Archer is a tough-as-nails military vet that comes home battered inside and out. Ghosts from the past haunt her as she struggles with loss, grief, and herself. We ache as she suffers through the intricacies of returning to civilian life and a new normal, which is anything but.
Tori is easy to root for and written in an emotionally touching and complex manner. The other characters are well-rounded, their compassion shining through as they help Tori through her struggles ... well, most of them. Don’t ya love a character you love to hate?
Mrs. Melville has woven the intricacies of this delicate subject into a gut-wrenching, real-life story that will touch your heart.
The end left me wanting more and looking forward to the next book in the series.

I also have a personal connection to this book, as the author, Joy Avery Melville was initially put in contact with me in order for her to get technical info for the book. Well it turned in to much more than that. Throughout the process, I got to know Joy and got comfortable enough to start sharing stories about my life and my struggles in the Army and since retiring. We have now become life long friends. I love you Ladybug.
And yes, I am just a little bit biased. LOL
