Because of You is a beautifully crafted, wonderfully emotional debut." JoAnn Ross New York Times bestselling author of Honeymoon Harbor

Welcome Home - these are the words every soldier longs to hear after an endless deployment. But for Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison, there's no one waiting when he arrives back at Fort Hood, unconscious and barely hanging on. The IED that nearly took his life took something more important - something he's afraid he'll never get back.

Working as nurse at Fort Hood's busy hospital, Jen St. James has seen her share of wounded warriors pass through her hallways. But there's something about Shane that draws her close, even when she knows her own brush with death has left her scarred.

As Shane struggles to recover, Jen is the only one who can see what's happening to him. As the wounds of war drag him further away from healing and everyone around him who matters, Jen is there, pushing him, demanding that he continue to fight to get back to the only thing he believes he's good at.

Along the way, Shane learns the hard truth about life without the uniform and discovers that maybe, there's someone for him to come home to after all.

Review quote

★ 08/01/2016 As an active soldier herself, Scott is all too familiar with the strains that accompany serving while female. She also knows the difficulties families face when a partner or parent is in the field and then returns to a situation where the others have moved on and the challenges of reentry into civilian life. The eight-volume "Coming Home" series considers what happens when the warrior comes home, whether they face intensive rehab, PTSD, the demons of addiction, or the fear that their spouse may not want them back. While some of these couples meet and fall in love during the book, others have to find a way to continue to love each other through the stress of serving their country.
