rescues a lost Ellen one dark night in the woods Reading a romantic story this is a great recommended book I loved the novel Running Scarred Jackie Williams is to be heralded for paying homage to the sacrifices that soldiers make and the suffering that they endure It would do well for us all to remember that it isn t just the physical injuries that are so devastating but also the ongoing emotional and psychological scars that can linger a lifetime In addition to the grittiness and heart wrenching emotion, there is a wealth of romance and sexual tension The physical pull between the main characters, Patrick and Ellen, is tangible Anytime they are in close proximity, sparks fly It was obvious that the the author had spent some time in France Her descriptions were spot on She had a wonderful grasp of the culture and language, lending an air of authenticity and a genuine atmosphere that made me feel as though I was right there with our hero and heroine.This book kept me engaged and downright riveted from the first page to the last I highly recommend it for anyone who wants their heart to be touched and their spirit to be moved. {Download} ⚞ Running Scarred ⚨ For Three Years
