Justifying Jack is the second story in the Wounded warrior series, is the story of love, survival and justifying how you continue after a great loss. The book centers on the leader of the small platoon that has lost two members in battle. Jack was injured in the fire fight that took his fellow soldiers and after a lengthy recovery has returned home. Jack is pursued by the ghost of his own making. Some from the injury some from the responsibility that he feels toward his brothers in arms. Jack has many personal struggles but he finds through helping others his greatest strengths.
Marie Teresa is the widow of Jorge, one of the soldiers lost in battle. Jack reaches out o his family to help support this widow. She is forced to move from base housing and its Jack’s family that not only finds her work, and a place for her children, but a family that she can be supported by.
The story shows the resilience of the human soul, and the ties that bind. With a remarkably sweet romance in the core of the story. Thank you Julie for sharing this all too realistic story and allowing others to know that the struggles of war not only face the soldiers but the family at home.
