Something Like Normal

Something like Normal - Trish Doller This book broke my heart a little, as Trish Doller gives the reader a heartbreaking and frank glimpse into the mind of a grieving soldier who’s having trouble fitting back into a life that no longer feels familiar or normal. From his PTSD, to his disillusionment and anger, to his guilt and despondency, to some incredibly poor decision making, to his attempts to move forward and his inability to leave the past behind, Travis is a very real, flawed and sympathetic character. His brokenness made me both hurt and hope for him – hope especially as spending time with Harper begins to push him towards dealing with his issues. It was an eye-opening story that gave me an even greater appreciation and understanding of the men and women in our armed forces. Overall, a tough emotional story of loss, grief and guilt, but also one of love, healing and forgiveness.
