Cindy Waymire is a college senior whose looking for a topic for her sociology paper. While headed for the student union one day, she meets Danny Flynn, in a most unusual way. Danny is an Army vet in his first year of college. Cindy decides to write her paper on how soldiers integrate themselves back into civilian life. Danny and all his veteran friends are very supportive and agree to help her with her research. Cindy and Danny are very drawn to one another but Danny has some serious issues with PTSD and flashbacks. To Cindy, it's kinda scary but when he's stable, he's the most loving, protective, attentive man she's ever met. Her feelings for Danny are strong but can she handle all that comes with loving him?

Wow! Such a powerful story. I don't think there is anyone out there who isn't familiar with PTSD, but unless someone you know is dealing with it, it's just a term. Battlefield of the Heart shows you what the reality of dealing with PTSD really means. How it affects the person who has it, as well as their family, girlfriend or spouse and friends. It shows how powerful love and support can be and the difference it can make in someones life. I love relationship-driven stories and that's just what I found here. I got totally lost in the lives of these folks, which to me, means great writing. I don't know if I would be as strong as Cindy, but when you're where God wants you to be you feel peace, just like Cindy did. She truly felt that the Lord wanted her with Danny. God gives each of us unique strengths and, looking at it from Danny's point of view, you understand how thankful he was that the Lord sent him Cindy. This really was a beautiful and inspirational story that I would definitely recommend. I hated to see it end and would love to have a follow-up of Danny and Cindy as well as their friends, who really became my friends too. Battlefield of the Heart is the perfect title for this unforgettable tale.
This is the first book I've read by this author and look forward to checking out her other available stories.
