Zeb is sent home from Vietnam broken and bruised. All he wants from life is to recuperate at home with his loving wife Mary and their new son Joshua. He soon finds that the townsfolk he grew up with have gone a little mad and the only way to escape the madness is to seclude himself with his family. When his friend arrives on the doorstep having just been released from duty, he welcomes him in with open arms but Cherokee Joe is about to burst his idyllic life’s bubble.
This book was not at all what I was expecting. I won’t give away any spoilers but it definitely surprised me. The beginning, where Zeb is in Vietnam, was quite refreshing and a complete change from what came later. The sex scenes jarred slightly because the romance between the couple was a little stark but they weren’t overdone.
The cover suggests that the book is marketed at women but I don’t feel the story is aimed at either gender so keep an open mind guys.
