First,–kudos to Ms. Sontheimer-Murphy for a book about PTSD. I really appreciate the effort she put forward in having a hero with such a debilitating problem that face so many now a days.
I liked both Devlin and Gracie, though I thought at times Gracie was a bit too ‘oh woe is me, I’m poor and have to work…’ and her attitude toward her customers (while probably quite legit for someone in customer service) sucked. Devlin though pulled at the heart-strings every chance he got. I have a soft spot for veterans and really appreciated his trouble adjusting back to life. It was heartbreaking that he felt so adrift and lost after what he’d done on the battlefield that he was considering making a very, VERY bad decision.
Gracie got better as the book went on, thanks to Devlin and her need to be with him outweighing her work-a-holic tendencies. Overall, I was really rooting for these two and was glad to see how they brought it together in the end.
