I loved this book. The back cover says it best. "On their way home from dinner, Malcolm Vaughn is shot and killed in front of his family. Undone by shock..wife Sarah, retreats...postponing son's Harry return to school. Harry (in) a troubling incident reveals his profound pain and confusion. It will take time - and the support of Malcolm's friend Deckard, A vietnam war veteran with troubles of his own - to help them understand the intricacies of their sorrow."
