Library Journal Reviews

Wounded and dealing poorly with the trauma of survivor's guilt, Lief Brevik heads for Snowberry, WA, to help with the B and B renovation of the classic house of a fallen comrade and friend. Meeting former military nurse Zoe Phillips at a work party potluck perks things up, until Lief learns she is the nurse practitioner overseeing his rehab. When Zoe begins to draw him out, their relationship becomes much more than professional. VERDICT A war-wounded soldier needing to heal finds understanding and love with a former army nurse who needs to come to terms with her own emotional wounds in this deeply touching, heartfelt romance. The story is lightened by witty banter yet realistically deals with tragic, timely issues. A hanky or three might come in handy. Morgan (A Time for Home) lives in Washington State.
