The Sacrifice Book Cover_New Design_Half

Now available on ebook and in paperback



Love of country…

These are words that Casey Atwood lives by. As a Marine stationed in Afghanistan, he fights every day against an invisible enemy and lives on the edge of constant suspicion. He knows his mission and will do whatever it takes to complete it.

Sahar Bayat is a young woman living in a war-torn country with her mother. She struggles each day with the oppression of the Taliban and the devastation it has brought to her home.  When she is caught in the crossfire of an American-Taliban battle, her life takes a turn she never expected.

Casey risks his life to save a woman he doesn’t even know…duty.

Sahar rescues the American soldier who saved her life…honor.

It is the love of their countries and the secrets that they hold back from each other that will threaten not only to tear them apart but will also put them in mortal jeopardy.

Thus begins an epic story of family, patriotism, duty….and paying the ultimate sacrifice for the ones you love…

I was inspired to write this book after meeting several students who were refugees of the war in Afghanistan. I also was very lucky to be in contact with a man who worked in the Kabul Airport for a year. He sent me the pictures I have included below–they truly helped me write this story.
