I Shall Be Near to You

This is an extraordinary book. Rosetta’s transformation into the persona of Ross in order to follow her newly acquired husband into battle is an insightful portrayal of the sacrifices we make for those we love. The mental conflict Jeremiah struggles with on a daily basis, in anguish over her safety and desperate to protect her, and his relief that she is a harbor in the storm and within arm’s reach when he needs her, is realistically rendered. The emotional evolution of both Jeremiah and Rosetta, and the evolution of a marriage that challenges all of their preconceived notions, is painstakingly accurate. 
The entire novel was poignant, heart-breaking and unforgettable.
