Background: Braden Winters got captured as a prisoner of war in Syria for two years and everyone thought him and his unit were dead. Several CIA agents managed to rescue him, and this book is his life trying to readjust to his freedom. However, with bad PTSD and no one who truly understands what he had gone through in Syria, he feels more alone than he wants to.
When by Victoria Laurie is a book I found randomly on the bookshelf at the library. The cover immediately caught my attention, and when I read the book jacket for the synopsis, I decided I had to check it out and see if the book would continue to hold my attention. It definitely did.
I really loved the idea behind the book and the originality of the subject. Maddie Fynn can tell when people are going to die just by looking at them. What a great idea for a book!
