Disinherited by his parents in an effort to force him to give up the woman he loves who is from a different social status, Adam loses his "umbrella" of college, is drafted and winds up in Vietnam. There he learns many valuable lessons about life and death, friendship and survival.
Injured at Khe Sanh, he returns home and must learn to forgive the parents he blames for his being sent to Vietnam, while trying to rebuild his life with Belinda and the son born while he was away.
But as Adam looks toward the future, his past calls to him, sending him into a downward spiral of despair and self-destruction, unable to distinguish the past from the present.
Alright I am going to admit that I am biased a little with this book. Being married to a Vietnam vet gives me a little more reason to relate to the characters and the story of this novel but I can honestly say WOW.
D.L. Rogers has done a fantastic job of not only portraying the characters in a realistic light but she has also captured the emotional aspects of returning home from war. This book truly had me sobbing at times. The descriptions of what Adam goes through both in Vietnam and once he returns home are truly astoundingly accurate.
I cannot say enough good things about this book. If you know a Vietnam vet, or are simply curious as to how things were for these men and women I recommend you curl up with a cup of tea and dive into the excellent story.
