A man is trapped in his own mind. Confined to a hospital bed for years, his family and friends believing him all but dead; somehow he can still hear. And he listens, he keeps breathing, keeps thinking, as those around him suddenly condemn him to death. With a life destined to end, he recounts his battlefield experience of death and violence, his own struggle with drug addiction and depression, and coming to terms with his own mortality, the importance of family and the meaning of life. And as he thinks, he lays, still as always, wondering when the final moment will arrive...
"Within the first few pages I was crying like a baby... Healey's ability to write with so much emotion is truly amazing to me. He has this ability to grasp my attention and not let go till the last word... Healey is truly a master of his art! One of my favorite all time authors for sure!" - Just Jennifer Reading
"This is a heartbreaking story... this book's author did a wonderful job of achieving a truthful, sensitive yet not overdone storyline. The characters are real to us, even though we don't get much more that their voices, their dialogue. That takes skill to do. To make us care about people who barely do anything but talk throughout the novel." - Carabosse's Library
