Summary
A haunting narrative about a mother's bond with her son; about life choices; about the military, war, and service to one's country. Sara's son Jason is missing from a Special Operations Forces mission undertaken on the same night as the Bin Laden raid. As Sara waits for news, in a series of flashbacks we learn about Jason's absentee father, while through letters home from his training and early missions, we get a picture of Jason as a strong, compassionate leader who is wise beyond his years and modest about his abilities. Those exceptional abilities give Jason the chance to participate in a wholly different level of assignment, the most important and dangerous of his career.--
Summary
When her beloved Navy SEAL son goes missing during a mission in 2011, single mother and freelance editor Sara unsuccessfully taps her Washington policymaker contacts for information, looks back on her relationship with her absent husband and traces her son's emerging leadership as documented in letters back home
