|Summary, etc.:||On a glorious, if blisteringly hot, Saturday in August 2010, Margaret Thomsonâs world is suddenly shattered by the incomprehensible news that her twenty-two-year-old son, a medic in the army, has taken his life. In a deep state of shock, Thomson and her husband immediately travel to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, where their son Kieran was stationed, in an effort to assist their daughter-in-law. Upon their arrival, though, the couple find themselves plunged into a labyrinthine and, at times, seemingly bizarre world of military rules and regulations. Eventually, after the funeral and the memorial services are over, an even more challenging journeyâemotionally as well as geographicallyâensues, especially for Margaret, who, as a former journalist, is determined to find out more about the circumstances surrounding her sonâs death, no matter how high the cost. As she enters her second year of grieving, Thomson receives an unexpected invitation from an unlikely sourceâthe army, which sheâs often blamed in many ways, whether fairly or not, for her sonâs death. Seizing upon this opportunity, Thomson finds that her perspective is changedâliterallyâand that as a result the world does indeed look different now.|
