Love at first sight - Vincent Zandri
About the book:
A young U.S. Army officer who’s served in Afghanistan finds himself suffering from intermittent bouts of “hysterical” temporary blindness due to impossible and deadly orders he was forced to obey by high command in the field. When he’s reunited with his fiancée in a military hospital in Germany after being separated for more than year, the couple are encouraged by doctors to travel to Venice, Italy together. There, amongst the canals and the cafes, they try to rekindle their love and fight off their personal demons while trying to comprehend the enormity of the heartbreaking role they now must play in love and war.
This is a short story, and i found that i really enjoyed the read with believable well defined characters that have a sense of purpose. The subject matter is current and engaging, with the struggles being well written and believable. I loved the depth of the story as well as the subject matter. In all a really good short read that i would recommend to anyone wanting a little incite into the lives of military personnel post in combat injury.
