Mary Metcalfeabout this book: There is a growing body of evidence that hundreds of thousands of returning and deployed American service personnel have Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs). Many also have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). And many, because their injuries and medical condition are abusing their spouses and/or other family members.
Road to Tomorrow is a contemporary fiction novel with a message: These issues are real and they are affecting thousands of families, not just in the U.S. but anywhere there is armed conflict and in the home countries of others who have served "in theater".
Road to Tomorrow is also the engaging story of a young mother who wants only the best for her two young children. In a desperate attempt to flee her abusive husband, she leaves the children with her twin brother and flees towards Boston where she hopes to get lost in the big city and find a job that will support her and the children.
But fate steps in, in the form of a late night accident that leaves her with a concussion and dependent on strangers to help her. As a caring community takes her under its wing, the violence of her past still seeks her out. And just when she feels her life may be coming into focus, another accident involving her twin brother and his best buddy - her husband - challenges her plans for her future and those of her children.
