ONE SEPTEMBER MORNING
One September Morning is a story of loyalty and betrayal, as a shattered family tries to heal after the loss of one of their own in Iraq. Gripping and emotional, the story could not be more timely.
When Abby Fitzgerald sees two soldiers approaching her front door, she knows her husband is dead. John Stanton, who gave up his career as a football star to serve in the military, has been killed in Iraq. Though he loved his country, he had grown disillusioned by the war. Abby tries to cope with her own grief while comforting John's family, including his mother Sharice, his anti-war sister Madison and his bitter younger brother Noah. But even through her pain, she is becoming more convinced that they don't know the full truth about John's death. (KENSINGTON, Jan., 320 pp., $14.00)
