About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Roused by a news report on a soldier killed in Iraq, Cary leaves behind her comfortable Washington, D.C., lifestyle for Baghdad. It's late 2003, and Cary is determined to help transition the country to democracy. But her idealism is soon tempered with the reality of post-invasion Iraq, where mortar fire forms staccato background music and a pair of bright blue eyes can meet with deadly reprisals.
From that first harrowing ride down the 8-mile airport road known as one of the most dangerous in the world, to poolside palace barbeques, unlikely friendships and love interests, Cary weaves an engrossing narrative of the war's most dangerous chapter. Through it all, Surviving Love in War is told with raw emotion as Cary loses friends to the violent conflict, gains an understanding of war and falls in love unexpectedly. With intimate detail, Cary describes the relationships she nurtured, the mistakes she made and the coping mechanisms she developed in her struggle for the survival of all she holds dear. Inevitably, all that she loved couldn't survive the treacherous journey.
Deftly constructed at 280 pages, Surviving Love in War: The enduring love for my country, freedom, democracy, and the love for a man is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the American category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Surviving Love in War meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $19.95.
