The boundary between battlefield and home front blurs. Are there wounds love can heal?
Marleigh Mulcahy grew up in a boxing gym, the daughter of hard-drinking parents who didn't keep a stable roof overhead. In the cinder-block Box-n-Go, amidst the sweat and funk, she meets EOD specialist Jace Holt, a highly and expensively trained bomb diffuser with three successful deployments behind him. With a heady mix of hope, carelessness, and a ridiculous amount of courage, they begin a family. When Jace returns to active duty, a roadside bomb resurrects ghosts from the couple's past and threatens the life they've built.An unflinching and timely gaze into the marriage of an enlisted special operator and his wife, Breach is a story of betting it all on love, a couple's determination to change the trajectory of their lives, and one woman's promises to the man she loves and the boys they're raising.
What choices will a desperate mother make to keep her family whole?
“Kelly Sokol delivers harrowing emotional intensity with writing that is fierce, compassionate and insightful. Breach is the stuff of book club legend.”—Jayne Ann Krentz, New York Times Bestselling Author
“Breach tears at your heart [and] embodies grief and fear, sexual tension and maternal love, poverty and hope, and the shrapnel that destroys when men go to war. It’s impossible not to pull for Marleigh in this story of scrappy survival in a world that keeps throwing punches.”—Janine Latus, Author of the International Best Seller If I Am Missing or Dead: A Sister’s Story of Love, Murder and Liberation
“Breach breaks your heart. It also fills you with courage and gratitude and the will to fight to the bloody end.”—Ellen Bryson, Author of The Transformation of Bartholemew Fortuno
“This virtuoso story draws the reader into the character’s hearts and souls, to feel what they feel, love whom they love, grieve when they grieve, exult when they overcome.”—Mike Krentz, Retired Navy Fleet Surgeon and Author of Dead Already
“The characters all feel like people I have known and cared for . . . At its core, Breach is a narrative about hope and the heartbreaking sacrifices a person sometimes must make just to keep living.”—Chera Hammons, PEN Award-Winning Author of Monarchs of the Northeast Kingdom
