ABOUT THE BOOK (277 pages):
Battles Raging Within Are Those You Must Fight to Win
WHITLEIGH CROMWELL dreamt of a happily ever after with her newlywed soldier husband. COLLIER CROMWELL loved God, his wife, and his country, though military life exacted a demanding toll.
An unexpected deployment during the height of war sends Collier away for yet another year. Their lives tumble down a path marked with struggle, and fatalities. Burdened with unseen emotional wounds and crippled faith, Collier’s homecoming only increases their trials. The angry, defeated hermit at Whitleigh’s side barely resembles the loving, faithful hero she married two years earlier. Concerned about possible career repercussions, admitting his need for help proves difficult for Collier and his behavior worsens.
Angry outbursts — and his cold, callous nature — isn’t all that provokes Whitleigh to pack her bags. Collier seeks solace for his private suffering in the worst possible place leaving Whitleigh to walk away from shattered pieces of broken trust.
Will Collier seek the healing he desperately needs in time to save their marriage, or is it over? Are there wounds too deep, marriages too broken, and lives so far gone they fall beyond even God’s ability to restore?

Hannah holds a BA in History from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, is an active member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and My Book Therapy.
I really enjoyed this book. I have never read a book about a husband and wife dealing with the separation of war. Hannah did an amazing job showing the before of the relationship and the after. Wow. So powerful and so much more playing into this story then meets the eye.
The between Whit and Collier is so strong in the beginning it’s hard to imagine anything horrible happening to ruin that. But war can do that.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a story about families involved in a war or a great story of restoration.
