#1 Solitary: When Chris Buckley moves to Solitary, North Carolina, he faces the reality of his parents’ divorce, a school full of nameless faces—and Jocelyn Evans. Jocelyn is beautiful and mysterious enough to leave Chris speechless. But the more Jocelyn resists him, the more the two are drawn together. Chris soon learns that Jocelyn has secrets as deep as the town itself. Secrets more terrifying than the bullies he faces in the locker room or his mother’s unexplained nightmares.

It could be your neighbor, your coworker, your son, or the woman sitting next to you in church. When combat veterans return from war, they’re often confused. They struggle to reconnect with their families; the cheering crowds and smothering hugs make them want to jump out of their skin; and sometimes they even long to return to the hell of deployment.
What they’ve experienced in combat can radically change how they view themselves, others, and the world at large. They may have never seen so much hurt, suffering, death, and destruction, which leaves them questioning, “Where is God?”
Dr. Tiffany Tajiri, a veteran USAF officer and board-certified clinical psychologist, has been in countless sessions with combat veterans and their loved ones and now shares powerful first-hand accounts, lessons, proven exercises, and biblical truth. Whether experiencing combat directly as a veteran or wanting to help bring healing as a family member, pastor, chaplain, or counselor, this book is essential. The emotional, psychological, and spiritual healing encountered applies to anyone facing harsh realities and uncomfortable questions and hoping to find peace again.
Together for the first time! Three transformational books from Kyle Idleman.
AHA: We’ve all had “aha!” moments in our lives, times when a sudden revelation surprises us with insight.
