In the Shadow of Fate

by Susan Haught

eBook
This companion to A Promise of Fireflies is dedicated to those who serve our country—past, present, and future.'The leather journal was identical to the one her father had filled so many years ago, yet no blood stained the cover. Her words came easily as did her tears, branding her journal as her father had decades ago in the jungles of Vietnam.'The poems in this book are the product of two of the characters in A Promise of Fireflies. Ryan's poetry depicts his love for a young woman prior to his deployment to Vietnam in 1967, and the fear, loneliness, and beauty of a country twelve thousand miles from home while serving in the 101st Airborne Division. Ryan left his heart, soul, and body on the battlefield, but he also left his legacy in a blood-stained journal for his girl back home and their infant daughter.Love is a powerful emotion that arches beyond comprehensive thought into a vast kaleidoscope of feelings. Ryleigh composes her poetry when a second chance at love is cut short by the ghosts from the past. Encouraged by an enigmatic old man who knows things he can't possibly know, she writes her words in a journal identical to Ryan's though forty three years separate them. But the only stains on her journal are tears for the man she let slip away.
