Walking Wounded by Sheila Llewellyn

Walking Wounded

Sheila Llewellyn

How does an idealistic 18 year old become a 22 year old patient in a military psychiatric hospital? Read this absorbing account of David's change, and possible cure, and be as touched and surprised as I was. Perhaps also be as concerned that the same thing is still happening all over the modern world.

Extract

We've all been through the war. Those I left behind have been through theirs. I've been through mine. It feels like they were different wars. I brought my war back with me. It doesn't match theirs. Nothing fits any more.
