Stories That Sweep You Away

Once a Soldier preview

It's a sunny Sunday here in Poinciana and a great omen for the coming week and the start of March.  This month I'll be giving you previews of the second book in "The Domenico Family Case Files" series.  The title is "Once a Soldier" and here is the blurb to whet your appetites.
* * * *
LTC Marco Domenico, a thirty-nine year old Delta Force operative, suffers severe injuries when the helicopter in which he is a passenger crashes during a secret mission.  Marco’s injuries may prevent him from ever walking again.  His sister, Guiliana Leoni, is unable to leave Italy in time for his arrival at Walter Reed.  She calls her former college roommate, Ay’ana Levy.  Ay’ana agrees to wait for Marco at the medical center despite her belief her presence will not provide much support.  Marco and Ay’ana have never gotten along.  As the months pass, Marco faces obstacles in his efforts to walk again—ones which also challenge his view of himself as a man.  He realizes no matter how mobile he becomes, his Army career has changed, and he must accept those changes and make plans for the future.  His progress to overcome his physical injuries and regain his confidence as warrior is remarkable, but the situation with Ay’ana Levy has now degenerated to the level of internecine warfare.  At the urging of his physical therapist, Marco makes an effort to meet Ay’ana halfway.  Whether the future holds any potential for them to reconcile their differences and become friends remains an open question.

The first installment starts next Sunday.  Check back and have a great week.
