She doesn’t know, no one does, what he has seen, experienced in the war. He has returned physically whole but a darkness, a distance has crept into him. She does her best to cope, care, live, because, she loves him. But, will this darkness become the only thing he understands and clings to or, can she reach him?

This story will relate to and affect a lot of people. Sad but true! Very well written.

Excellent writing, but oh, so hard a story to read. The short sentences made me share the short, scared breathing patterns of the loving wife, the fear creeping, receding, creeping back receding.This feels like a textbook example of how it can be to live with a suicidal veteran. In real life, I would want the husband to have trauma-therapy, which I hope was what he was offered 'off stage' in the story.
