After being caught in an explosion in Afghanistan, Jules is sent home with no memory of her time as a marine or the love she found overseas. 

Now, five years later, Julia is working in the local library, with an overprotective mother who would do anything to keep her from learning the truth.

But will a chance encounter with someone from her past make Julia remember who she truly is? 

And can she ever be the same person again? 


Just a few notes:

1. My knowledge of the Armed Forces is limited so expect mistakes although I shall try my best to make everything as accurate as possible. 
2. I have recently posted the prequel to this book called 'Seven Years'.
3.This book is dedicated to all the men and women who put themselves in harms way to serve their country, wherever they may be; past and present.

Are you self taught? Your book was so good I wish I could have that kind of good writing in my books.

Am I the only one who thought of MW2 when Ramirez came up? No? Just me?

That song made me tear up. Both my dad and my brother are in the military and I remember my dad coming back from a deployment and seeing him was the best thing ever.😊
I could visual every single thing. You've written everything beautifully. 
                              And the prologue is so gripping.

Really well written! My only comment is would an IV feel like a scratch, necessarily?...
