Everyone has their breaking point and Evelyn has finally reached hers. In an attempt to escape her life, and the events that broke her heart and killed her dreams, she tries to commit suicide. Now, at R&R Resort, she must find the strength to love and trust again. But can she trust the person who betrayed her the most?
Derek made the wrong decision, one that damn near cost him everything he ever loved. When his wife attempts suicide, his superior officer recommends a military only health facility called R&R Resort. His wife is alive, but can he heal the wounds that are tearing their marriage apart?
This was, by far, the hardest book I've ever written. This emotional journey is a reflection of one I took in reality; which includes a stay in a psych ward. I wasn't lucky enough to get a free pass to a military-only facility, but Evelyn's fears and struggles come from the true experience.
To Honor is particularly special to me because, unlike many romance novels, it is a travel into the territories of invisible illness. Those who don't suffer from one simply don't get it. It truly is a situation of you either get it, or you don't. Invisible illness like PTSD, depression, etc are very real and very life altering. They can make getting out of bed one of the worst struggles you deal with on a daily basis. I wrote To Honor in hopes of reaching out to those that suffer and letting them know one key thing that could have helped keep me from attempting to take my own life in 2011...YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
During this week I will be delving deeper into my experiences and how they influenced this book at various blogs. Tuesday I'll be at Book Babe, Wednesday at Shyla Colt's blog, and Thursday at Decadent Decisions. There is a possibility of more blog visits to come.
I'm also giving away a free copy of To Honor to one lucky winner. To enter, you simple must leave a comment as to what kind of invisibly illness you've seen someone struggle with or struggled with yourself. You are also free to leave me a question if you so choose. ~ D. F. Krieger
