And then we meet Hunter. An American soldier home on leave, about to head out to the second Iraqi war. His best friend, Derek is also introduced to us. They have known each other since they were quite young and were even in the same Marine Corps unit. Hunter has problems of his own before he returns, and they compounded by an incident that brings Rania and Hunter face to face.
What happens next will make you happy and sad and sometimes both at the same time. I recommend taking the time to read this book. It is a well written, emotional story that I can see myself reading over and over!
