The Boarder and Others
by William C. Rasmussen
Two years ago, Ben & Liz Smith’s only son, Pete, was killed in Afghanistan by a roadside bomb. Shortly thereafter, the Smiths learn that Pete had befriended another young soldier at the base, who was with him when he died. Now that same soldier, Todd Stark, has chosen to finish up his college education at the University of Memphis, and the Smiths decide to take him in as their boarder.
