Athon Dailey hasn't had many breaks in her life other than the ones she made for herself by living up to her reputation as a tough girl until she meets Lauren Shelton, a new girl at school in Duvalle, Texas. Tamed by Lauren's affection, Athon begins to believe there could be a brighter future. When Lauren's parents discover the growing relationship they send her away, making sure the two girls never have contact, leaving Athon alone and abandoned.

Twenty years later the two women meet again. Athon has established a successful military career as a helicopter pilot while Lauren has returned to Duvalle to teach. It doesn't take long for them to rekindle their feelings for one another and they finally get the chance to rebuild their teenage dreams. Permanent happiness is within their grasp when Athon's unit is deployed.

Athon comes home in a coma, diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. She awakens to find Lauren by her side to welcome her home. When Athon chooses to retire and return to Texas, neither realizes the twists and turns the journey home will take. The Athon Dailey who returned to Lauren is not the woman she remembers. In order for their relationship to survive, Lauren begins her search for the woman she loves. Will Athon finally find her way back to Lauren and the dream they both once had? Does Lauren have the courage to live with a woman who is now a stranger?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love this book 28. September 2013
Von Ack - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is my first book by this author and I'm glad I took a chance and bought this. I really liked reading it.
I've heard a lot about PSTD but this author made it real for me In this book. I like the fact that we got to really know Athon and Lauren before the PSTD started. This made me appreciate more the changes they went through, as well as their struggles to survive as a couple. The author didn't paint an image of perfect characters and she gave us the opportunities to see the protagonists at their worst and their best.
One thing I had a hard time with, in this book, is how fast the couple got back together after their long separation. I understand the author had to get to the main topic but that part felt a little bit surreal. nevertheless, overall this was a good book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great read about reclaiming life after PTSD 3. Oktober 2013
Von Philologus - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I am very fond of books by Renee Bess and this one is another great read. Realistic, detailed, rich characters, non-mainstream characters. I esp. loved that she showed the effect of PTSD on a veteran AND the spouse and at the same time the book is positive, warm-hearted and vibrant. The story is intricately woven with strands of past and present time and a worthy reading.
Only one complaint: I am sure that the publisher could have found a German native speaker e.g. on FB to check the foreign words. For such an expensive book it should be a must.

What an amazing read. Brought tears to my eyes quite a few times. Still could not put it down. Brenda obviously did her research. It was too real.

3.0 von 5 Sternen too much! and then too much again! 28. Januar 2014
Von pnwTH - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The violence of the childhood abuse went on so long, I could barely finish. I'm certain to have skimmed some. And then the attack in Afghanistan, same thing, too much detail, too long. There is always a balance between being accurately, painfully descriptive, and being pruriently so. When the attacks go on too long and in such gruesome detail, including the abuse scene late in the book, I start to mistrust the writer's intent.

Using the datelines to tie the narrative into a whole while the stories jumped back and forth from one character to the next came off as a weak way to tie together what started to feel like diary entries. I did finish this one, and although I think the topics are definitely timely, the military details only felt authentic when the hospital scenes came along.

Finally, even when set in the fictional Duvale, Texas, I found the level of acceptance expressed unrealistic. Sorry, but Texas still exhibits way too much homophobia and racism to let this story be much more than futuristic sci-if.

What a great story about two girls that meet at the age of sixteen. Then they are torn apart by parents and meet years later still both single. I couldn't put this book down it is a wonderful story about love and that it is not always easy but worth the fight.
