"There's that guy again, Regan. Look."
I looked up to see the guy Shaquanna was referring to. He was the same guy who'd been coming into the coffee shop where I worked as a waitress every day. I didn't think anything of it. He was probably new in town or just passing through.
He shuffled in and sat down in a booth near the window. He carried a green duffel bag that he dropped on the booth seat next to him. I figured he must be military because his green looked Army issue. I took a moment to study him. His medium brown hair was thick and in need of a haircut. Dark stubble marred his jaw, and from this far away, I couldn't tell what color his eyes were.

Soldier boy ranks quite high among the audio books I have listened to. It is the only one I have read that is about an injured soldier who is so cruelly treated by those who should be his loved ones.

I was moved by all the interaction with Daniel, my heart grieved for him. His suffering was so immense and he did not deserve any of it. The scene at his ex wife's house where she harangued him and accused him of not saving two of his men was harrowing to say the least. His meeting at the park where he said goodby to his son, the little boy instinctively knew what a good man Daniel was.
This was a beautiful book a real tear jerker. So many horrible people and one beautiful girl with a shining soul who saw the matching soul in a broken man and brought it back out to shine again.
