Blake Calder returns to Greenoch, where he was stationed during the start of WWII, looking for some answers. While he tries to find the internal strength to face those answers, he recalls his time in the war, the events leading up to it, and how his war ended. More
Blake Calder has come back to Scotland in search of an answer to the one question that has haunted him for almost twenty years. Being back in Greenoch, overlooking the Firth of Clyde, he remembers the events that led to him joining the Kings Own Calgary Regiment, the battles he fought, the love he found. Returning to the oak tree on the bluff where he and Ayne would sit together, he draws on the strength of his Uncle Stephen, his sister Mo and his many brothers, to face the truth about the only woman he would ever love. Why did he survive Dieppe, Ortona, Arezzo, when so many others perished? Why would a God he had been raised to love and trust allow this hell to happen?
The answers, he knows, are in Greenoch. Now he has to find the strength, or perhaps a kindred soul, to help him face those answers.
