Dr. Margo Devaull came to Dominic Zanelli's mountain retreat confident that she could help this Vietnam veteran overcome the torment that kept him apart from the world. But her training as a psychologist had not prepared her for the tragic, explosive contradictions brewing inside him. For here was a sensitive artist who could be gentle – and a man whose eyes flashed with violence and pain when he told her to leave and never come back. Yet Margo did come back, slowly gain his trust, and awaken the sleeping needs of his heart. Only by reliving her own wounded past and helping Zane confront a terrible memory from the war could she set them both free – and save their last chance for love.
Leesmith tackles the subject of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with reverence and respect in Love's Miracle. It makes for a compelling and emotional read that will keep your stomach in knots and your heart palpitating right to the very end.
The author visits the horror of war and the struggle to find peace in the aftermath. Impeccably paced, Leesmith reveals Zane's past in snippets of flashbacks that directly relate to what he is experiencing in the present. A clever technique that kept me voraciously reading so that I could put all the pieces of this complex hero together. Zane is every inch the taciturn, stalwart warrior but the author affords us glimpses of his humanity as well. He is a paradox that Margo is determined to solve.
And Margo isn't without her own issues which drive her professionally and personally. What starts out as a need to rescue turns into something much deeper and things get a whole lot more complicated as a result. Leesmith writes their romance with simmering passion and stark emotion.
A moving tribute to the heroes of a war everyone wants to forget. Leesmith reminds us that their sacrifice was heartbreakingly real and they deserve our utmost respect.
