ABOUT THE BOOK
A YOUNG WOMAN determined to honor her commitment...
AN INJURED SOLDIER convinced life is no longer worth living...
A RETIRED DOCTOR certain it's too late to be forgiven...
Jane Morrow has a dilemma. She's engaged to Seth Ballantine, a member of the National Guard's 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team, and he's returned from Iraq severely wounded. Jane hasn't seen him for nearly a year, and with trepidation, she heads to the VA hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, where he is being treated.
Seth isn't happy to see her. He'd asked her not to come. He wants to end the relationship. But Jane loves him, and despite his injury, she's determined to convince him that they can have a life together. Her faith has never been strong, yet she hopes God will answer her prayers and tell her what to do.
Beautifully written, Travelers Rest takes readers on a journey through pain and tragedy to a place of hope and redemption.

Picking up this book touched a raw place in my heart. Memories of Andy returning injured from Afghanistan flooded my heart. Too recent thoughts of Jeffery and his struggles with suicide because of his experiences in Afghanistan. Thoughts of losing Michael in the helicopter crash on Christmas Eve in Fallujah. No, I just didn't think I could read a book about a wounded soldier who had returned from the war.
But I did. Each character is painfully believable. Tatlock's way of writing is so relatable that you find yourself drawn into the pages and becoming very attached to her characters. When they hurt, you hurt. When they find joy, you rejoice with them.
