As We Remember Veteran's Day, Remember Our Veterans and Families Suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

New book details the effects on families of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). "Reconciliation: A Son's Story" by Steve Sparks shows in a very personal way how families are affected when a father returns from war.

Orlando, FL, November 11, 2011 --( Signalman Publishing is proud to announce the paperback release and ebook distribution through Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble nook and Apple iBookstore, of "Reconciliation: A Son's" Story by Steve Sparks.

In this new ground breaking memoir, the author reflects back on his father's World War II experiences, including his father having survived Pearl Harbor, as the context underlying his own family dynamics and abuse. Through the author's research and study of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), he comes to an understanding of his father's behavior and how this deeply impacted the family.

John McClure, President of Signalman Publishing, stated, "Every once in a while as a publisher, I come across that rare manuscript that I just think everyone should read. Steve Sparks’ book is one of those. This is an American story about an American father who went to war and came back changed by what he saw and by what he experienced. How this impacted his family was profound, yet unrecognized for what it was back then. Today we know much more about the effects of PTSD on the individual, but what about the family members closest to that person? Steve Sparks explores this in a compelling way that helps all of us to not only better understand this topic, but also appreciate the sacrifices that our war veterans and their families have made for our nation."

A very timely book, this may help the thousands of families of veterans of our own current generation returning from their war experiences to better understand the effects of PTSD on the entire family.

"Reconciliation: A Son's Story" (ISBN: 978-1-935991-30-4, $13.99, Non-fiction) from indie book publisher Signalman, is distributed through Amazon, Barnes &, and the Apple iBookstore, and can be purchased wherever fine books are sold.
