Author(s): 

Seitz uses her gift of storytelling
to share the internal lives of Vietnam
veterans and their loved ones as
they search for the truth that will
free them from the curse of war.
Be patient during the first couple
of chapters. Once the four main
characters are fully developed you
will be hooked and fully empathize
with them. Don't put this book down until you reach the final resolution;
it has a surprise ending.

It's been 40 years since the Vietnam War, but South Carolina builder John Porter is still fighting "the enemy" in his mind, even though he's built a good life since he returned and has a loving family, including a daughter, Katherine Ann.

Fifty miles away, in Georgetown, Lisa Le tries to connect with her Vietnamese mother and find her American father. Both John and Lisa are being held captive in a private hell -- until a modern-day land mine explodes, setting off events that will unite them. (THOMAS NELSON, Mar., 320 pp., $14.99)
