THE GIFT OF PEACE IN A TIME OF WAR

A young man's journey in an increasingly meaningless and violent war.

 

Dan heads off to Vietnam with two goals in mind: to return to the love of his life in one piece, and to make at least one Vietnamese friend while overseas. Assigned as a Civic Action Officer in a Vietnamese village, he ends up befriending an entire village and finding peace in a small corner of the world.

 

Inspired by Joseph Conrad's Lord Jim and Thomas Dooley's Deliver Us From Evil, this novel demonstrates how one American's experience was not only different from anything he had ever imagined, but the very opposite.
