“We Come to Our Senses” by Odie Lindsey

This is a novel of short stories about current day soldiers, both men and women.  They have been hurt physically as well as mentally by combat on and off the field.  I was personally the most affected by the stories where the women were the protagonists. The stories are beautifully written, often shocking and always heartbreaking.  It left me feeling that we simply need to thank those that help keep us safe more often.  I hope others find their way to this short but powerful book.
