Could it be where warriors of all kinds are always welcomed home? Brotherkeeper, a compelling fictional vel about three military families, invites the reader to the battlegrounds and dinner tables of our returning veterans to explore their anguish and triumphs as they navigate re-entry into civilian life. Jake is a marine, a man of hor, who served as a sniper in the Vietnam War, a legacy he carries with him on his chest, full of medals, and in the nightmares he calls dreams. Naomi, his wife, has made Jake promise t to let the Viet Cong enter their home, and for many years, he has lovingly obeyed. Now, something changes. A subtle shift in the weight of the world in response to graphic emails of terrorists killing marines and watching his students go to war, something clicks in the self-imposed cage that he and his wife have carefully built to keep war at bay.

In love and war there is a price to pay for everything. Naomi, the unseen warrior behind the lines, kws that cost, and this time she refuses to watch the ravages of war strip the rmalcy from their lives. This time she takes action.
