I cannot find the words to say how much I enjoyed this book. I am always leery of books that deal with any type of PTSD. Too often, the words on the pages do not reflect the realities that I have seen in my nursing practice. But, Aftermath was spot on. Neither of the main characters is miraculously healed overnight. Nor did they just use drugs and alcohol to cope with the aftermath of such a horrible experience. What they did was learn to rely on one another, while accepting the need for personal healing. LOVED this title and HIGHLY recommend it.
