Oh well, she's not my girl back home anyway. Her name is Halamie Tikara. She's Iraqi, and not so far away. So complicated, our beautiful love. Human Intelligence Specialist Joshua Martin lies stranded and severely wounded after a night raid on an al-Qaeda hideout in Samarra. He spends a long night alone remembering-not only intense combat but also growing up conflicted in Oklahoma. As he prays for a rescue at dawn, Joshua, the son of an evangelical minister, recalls his foray into first love at a church summer camp. A scandal while attending a Bible college drives Joshua to join the War on Terror. But he is really seeking true love abroad, not martial glory or divine forgiveness. It is a difficult search. Then he finds the spirited Halamie. The young couple must hide their budding romance from hard men. The Book on Joshua is a captivating exploration of a foreign war and forbidden love. A Christian boy and Muslim girl test their faith in each other against the backdrop of sectarian violence in 2005/2006 Iraq.
