Michelle Sanderson is finding the healing process to be incredibly more difficult mentally than physically. Catching a bullet in her hip was bad enough, although it is nothing compared to nightmares and flashbacks.

Watching her daughter grow into a sweet, well-adjusted little girl is all Carly Williams needs in her life. She learned long ago to rely on no one but herself, even if it would be nice to share responsibilities once in a while.

Coming home from war is nowhere near as easy as Michelle had hoped. In fact, it is downright painful. The Inn is supposed to be her sanctuary. Instead, it is buried in debt thanks to her worthless mother, and comes with an ex-best friend she would rather not have to deal with. Carly just wants a little security for her and Gabby, which she would have if Michelle’s mother had not lied about owning the Inn. Now she will be lucky if Michelle does not fire her on the spot. Or worse, make her and Gabby’s life a living hell by keeping her on.

Civilian life is not an easy adjustment for Michelle, which she makes even harder by ignoring or spurning anyone who tries to help. Her bitterness and hostility are so relentless it is very hard to feel any empathy for her. Carly is almost a doormat in the face of Michelle’s tirades, yet her unwavering need for her daughter’s security keeps her standing strong. It may take a while, but I think Michelle eventually realizes how extremely lucky she is to have Carly and a few very special people in her life who refuse to let her self-destruct.
