Almost Home by Robert Fitzgerald Price
A Soldier's Journey Back to the Love of His Lifetime
A personal message from the author:
The book is based on a true story. My story. A couple's epic love story faces a twist of fate, putting their plans – and faith – to a heartbreaking test. Maybe another ordinary sappy romance story? No. There is a lot to say about it, but ordinary is far from it. This book is both beautiful and sad. It’s the kind of book that changes your life and makes you cry your eyes out.
‘Almost home’ makes you realize how beautiful life is and how lucky you are for the things and friends you have. Life is short and unexpected, and you must live it at its best. I wrote this book to share my story of love, compassion, and kindness. It’s the kind of story that will have you crying, but you’ll keep reading. It will make you realize that there’s magic in the world, despite the bad things that happen, and it will restore your faith in humanity. You’ll learn that even the smallest gestures can have an unimaginable impact and that there’s always someone watching. So, do good, be kind and live life to the fullest.

A couple's epic love story faces a twist of fate, putting their plans – and faith – to a heartbreaking test. Based on actual events.
Take a journey with a young Army officer and an airline stewardess as they fall in love and prepare to share their lives together when Saddam Hussein invades Kuwait. As quickly as destiny brought them together, it separates them and puts them worlds apart.
Bob promises to ask Allison a question when he returns home. Will she marry him? A question that she's resolute to answer, yes. Each day that he's gone means that they're one day closer to him being almost home and their dream of a life together becoming a reality.
As Operation Desert Storm launches, almost 7,000 miles from home, 260 miles deep into Iraq, cut off and outnumbered 2,000 to 1 in one of the largest battles of the Gulf War, can Bob keep his promise? Is love and faith enough to overcome the odds?Amazon
