Editorial Reviews

Review

Gold Medalist, Military Writers Society of America:

War and its aftermath is a deep, deep well for stories about devotion to duty, sacrifice, strength of character, friendship and love as well as violence, betrayal and loss. 

Tracey Cramer-Kelly successfully weaves these emotions together in her poignant book, True Surrender, where we enter the world of Major Aaron Bricewick. After enduring capture and torture by terrorists in Afghanistan, and ultimate rescue by his fellow soldiers, Bricewick returns to the states wounded both physically and mentally. As may be typical of combat veterans, his stubbornness and outward self-confidence mask his vulnerability. 

Perhaps it's because of the author's Army Reserve medic experience, but I found the descriptive side story of Bricewick's leg amputation with its phantom pain, adjustment to prosthetics, acceptance of the reality of a lost limb and the limits it places on career and personal life, to offer raw insight into a world too many of our war wounded face and so few of us civilians can imagine. 

Bricewick's amputation brings him together with his former lover, Holly Rossiter, a prosthetist (artificial limb maker) at Holbrook Medical Center in California. But the amputation also serves as a metaphor for his life at this point: cut off emotionally from those around him, caught off balance by the betrayal of those he trusted, and in need of support from loved ones, no matter how painful it is for his independent self to admit. 

Mix this with a mystery to be solved, an endearing and sensual love story, and a renewal of faith that had been long forgotten and True Surrender becomes a compelling and entertaining story. I couldn't put it down.

About the Author

Wounded veterans. Biker chicks. Famous people with secrets to hide. These are the characters that tend to populate Tracey's writing. It's about their personal journey, and their transformation. Tracey's writing draws from her experience as an Army Reserve paramedic as well as over 20 years of being a "biker chick" herself. In addition to fiction, she also tries to keep one toe in the music world, contributing vocals to several albums as well as releasing her own covers. She has even been known to produce a video or two! When she's not writing or running the family motorcycle accessories business, she enjoys hanging out with her husband and two young kids, especially in the great outdoors.
