Raised in a deeply religious family, Mercy rebels against all rules during his teenage years. He stops attending church.

To avoid a destined path of self-destruction, Mercy enlists in the Army. After two combat tours, Mercy returns home battling PTSD. Trying to forget about the lives that he has taken and resume a “normal” life, Mercy returns to church. He enrolls in college and reconnects with a childhood crush.

Mercy saved some of his men. Can he save himself?


“This author is an artist of words because from the horrors of war to the aromas of the traditional dishes cooked by Mercy’s family, it all comes vividly alive! Every colour rich and every sound heard. It is so hard to believe that this is a debut novel. It isn’t about what a war does to a man as much as the battles he faces internally all his life to fit in, before and after his time in the army. Through his writing he can express himself, just brilliant.”

“I rarely give 5 stars to the books I read unless they are so thought provoking or extraordinary that they remain with me long after I’ve finished.
It delves deep into an issue that is running rampant right now and I have never seen it more beautifully done. I found it very hard to put this book down. This is a book I would recommend to anyone with a heart.

“As a licensed psychologist with years of experience working with individuals recovering from trauma, I was happy to find a book that accurately depicts the experience of a veteran returning war. Accurately depicted are his battle with PTSD as well as his experiences with friends and family. I have recommended this book to clients and families seeking to gain a better understanding of the veteran”s experiences post combat.
