Silences of Fallen Stars
by Vivien Dean
Once the golden boy, Jim McCutcheon finishes college with dreams of NASA dashed. He goes to work on his grandfather’s farm, but when Ronnie, his childhood best friend, comes home wounded from Vietnam, he’s too ashamed to seek him out. Ronnie’s mother begs him to visit. Though it doesn’t go well, it opens the door for them to start talking again, so maybe they can forge a new future together.
