Thanks to Shelby at Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists for the opportunity to review this book.

I would rate this 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Description: All Tracy Dade wants is to deliver a healthy baby and be a good mother, but she fears her unhealthy relationship with her father-a Vietnam vet suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder-will sabotage her ability to have a normal life. She decides reconciling with him is her only hope and begins a pilgrimage to Fort Ord’s abandoned East Garrison to track him down. In her way stand acres of land polluted with unexploded ordnance, an overprotective husband, a dangerous predator stalking the base, and her own stubborn heart. With her labor just hours away, she’s running out of time.

This book is different from any other book I have read and the ending was totally unexpected.   While I could not bring myself to like most of the characters in this book they were more real than most books I have read.  Weger shows all of their flaws and the consequences these flaws have on the lives of each character.  You have Tracy suffering from depression and unresolved issues with her father, her husband who sees everything in black and white with no gray areas and Tracy’s environmentalist, co-worker.  Each characters issues lead to what I felt was a depressing ending.  While not a book for everyone it was well written and guaranteed to draw the reader in.  This book has received some raving reviews at Amazon though so check those out as well.
