Noteworthy Book!!

When Cadet Cassidy Sanders is brutally assaulted, she struggles to carry on as she turns further from the God of her youth. Her attacker is an acquaintance who has his own struggles to face. God uses their mutual friends to show both cadets the depth of his grace and mercy.Higher Honor is set within the sub-culture of America's military colleges. The novel focuses on the elements of honor, brotherhood, duty, and the spirit of the characters to face and overcome challenges that grow them into the military's next generation of strong, capable leaders. The realism of Higher Honor's setting and plot is a result of experience, observation, and much research.

S.M. Kirkland brings firsthand experience to her fiction. While a student at North Georgia College and State University (the senior military college of Georgia) she enlisted in the Georgia Army National Guard. During a 10-year military career, she served as a photo- and broadcast journalist while serving in Italy and for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta.Kirkland currently works for the Calhoun Times as the government reporter and her feature stories have appeared in newspapers nationwide. Her first fiction publication was a short story Fair Balance included in the anthology Light at the Edge of Darkness (TWCP, 2007). This story received several rave reviews.

OH my. This sounds interesting!

You know, I just read Michelle Sutton's "It's Not about Me." and it too has a brutal attack in it and how that affects faith.

I'm so thankful we have such a mighty God who can get us through anything and everything. What peace that brings despite it not guaranteeing an "easy" life.

Thanks for the post.
