This is one of my favourite Garrett Leigh books - it's a wonderful story with tons of emotion. I did like Michael Stellman's narration - it had his easy and endearing style that I find very accessible to listen to, but oh my goodness his British accent is appalling! It flits between some sort of pseudo American-British mix which doesn't work at all on the odd occasion I hear it. That said, it really didn't matter - it was a rubbish accent, but it was still a good narration and allowed me to enjoy the story, and still rank him as one of my favourites to listen to.
As a vet of Iraq this story was well written. The author knew all the nuances of American military life and did a great job of brining it to the listener.

I really enjoyed this military hurt/comfort read. Ms Leigh is a really talented writer and this is a really good story. Be warned it has some horrific war scenes and a lot of flashbacks. Sometimes it made it hard to tell whether something was a flashback or present day. But not too bad. It only lost a star because it was REALLY slow for me and a lot of men not expressing their feelings to each other, just in their heads. I'm not a fan of that; I like feelings being expressed verbally to the person you are suppose to love. But if are a fan of the slow burn, you will really like it. The narrator does a great job and has a little more diversity in his voices than other books I've listened to by him. All in all worth a credit.
