Once upon a time, Gianna Roberts was a sergeant in the army who had the job of Army Motor Transport Operator. Unfortunately, a series of unfortunate incidents leaves her with a desire for drinking excessively despite having a son. Fortunately, Nate introduces her to a recovery program for service members who are addicted to drugs and alcohol and people who suffer from PTSD. However, Nate, who is five years sober, finds himself hopelessly falling for Gianna, which could jeopardize his progress and his job. Are the two addiction survivors ready to give love a chance despite the things they risk losing? Mission: Courage by Stacy Eaton depicts a female veteran's struggle with addiction, betrayal, and loss and her new friendship with a "handsome, commanding" man who came into her life at a crucial moment.
One of the most moving, inspiring stories I've read in a while! As the book depicts, with a great level of realism, the sort of torturous conditions that some veterans, alcoholics, and drug addicts go through, it touched a deep part of my soul. I understood that Gianna is not a heartless mother, and the guilt of leaving her son haunts her through her struggle with addiction. On a more relaxing note, the romantic scenes in the book will have your heart racing and excited about the possibilities of a new love story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Stacy Eaton's book. Its reader-friendly and natural style feels like you're having physical conversations with its likable characters. Readers who love books about overcoming trying times and the difficulties veterans go through would enjoy Mission: Courage. I'm extremely thrilled that it's in a series because I get to read more like it!
