Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn't know was that I was breaking mine too.
I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .
Before the war.
Before the ambush.
But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.
The truth is I’m lost without you.
I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .
All my love,
Trauma always leaves a scar. It doesn’t matter how tough we are. It follows us home. It changes our lives.
Heartbreak Warfare is an epic military romance. It hit me hard. For four days I lived and breathed this book. Katy and Briggs’ story.
It’s raw, ugly and brutally honest. Nothing is swept under the rug. War is ugly! It leaves a scar and changes you. Affects you. Not only the soldiers, in this case Katy and Briggs but also the people at home. Their loved ones.
The repercussions of trauma is evidently clear to Katy and Briggs. They’re irrevocably changed. Forever. How to navigate through a new life after they have been to war, experienced a horrible trauma is not easy. Far from it.
Heartbreak Warfare depicts it beautifully and with an haunting authenticity and honesty that left me a sobbing mess. It’s not an easy book to read and I was prepared. Heartbreak Warfare is not fluffy and light. It shows all sides of trauma. How a prisoner of war is affected and tries to find their way back to a new normalcy. Their loved ones trying to get back to how it used to be but is now forever changed and will never be the same.
Katy and Briggs makes mistakes. Plenty of them. They’re adjusting to a new life and still holding on to the past. Their past together and the one before they met. Katy and Briggs have to go through a lot. Mentally and emotionally. They’re messed up and who can blame them. I didn’t. My heart broke for them. Maybe we have to get a little messed up before we can step up. Katy and Briggs are evidence of that. They step up when it matters. Stripping themselves open.
Heather M. Orgeron and Kate Stewart have created a spectacular book. This story took over my life, my thoughts for four days. Heartbreak Warfare is that amazing. It’s fast paced. Every scene , every moment, every word mattered to me. It was important to the story. A story that’s relevant and had to be told. Needed to be told. This is what happens in war. Heartbreak Warfare is not the story told from the casualties point of view. No, it’s the story told from the heroes of war. The soldiers. The survivors. The American heroes.
Heartbreak Warfare is an instant favorite of mine this year. An all time favorite. Epic is not a big enough word.
