Gunnery Sargent Perceval Stone, a third generation Marine, is suddenly medically retired. After all of the collective damage of many wars and actions, an IED leaves him with TBI (traumatic brain injury) and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
Stone is a walking mental time-bomb like so many others who have lost their compass. If he can't find his center and path, he may never get back.
Walking away confused from the only home and family he has ever known, he has a phone in his pocket that he does not know how to use, a pesky yeoman stalking his every move, and is on an $800 motorcycle, headed west from Bethesda, MD, searching for what it means to be a civilian, and what makes home, home.
In an effort to find his peace, he ends up beside a tranquil lake, watching a perfect sunset.
And then the phone rings....
Thousands of military have come back - but couldn't find their way home. If you ever served, had a loved one who did, or just know someone - this is the audiobook for you, and a gift for them.
