We once again find ourselves enthralled with the lives of Major Nichol ‘Nic’ Caldwell and Claire Monroe. Following on from Always Faithful Isabella takes us on a journey of danger, bravery and valour.
Nichol Caldwell is given a ‘payback’ tour that sends her to Afghanistan, working out of Camp Leatherneck in the Helmand Province, her job to work with a civilian collecting information from village elders. The constant danger and Nic’s intuition keep her sharp but even those with the most to lose can’t fight and win every battle.
From the traumatic opening sequence of events the reader is transported to Afghanistan. With outstanding detailed descriptions you literally feel the dust encompassing you as you read along.
Forever Faithful not only deals with the lives of the two characters we have come to love and admire but touches on so much more. The aftermath of war, life threatening injuries, PTSD and, above all, the courage that not only puts a soldier on the front line to keep us safe, but the level of courage, that gives them the ability to stay strong in their darkest moments.
If you loved Always Faithful, my advice is buy the book. You will not be disappointed. Isabella has once again written from the heart about strong women fighting for all their worth.
