Jaime Geraldi of ArticleWriteUp writes: LADY JUSTICE AND THE VET is a thought-provoking tale that will dig deep into the hearts of many people across the globe.
Whether we like it or not, we are all somehow affected by war. The battles are inevitable as told in this story which focuses on PTSD. Soldiers are not the only ones who fall victim to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The family and friends of our freedom fighters feel the pain often, too.
The author gingerly approaches this sensitive topic with ease, yet the readers will find it to be raw and very, very real. Emotions and interests will be piqued, and some may even find themselves shedding a tear or two as we traverse into the minds and memories of the numerous brave veterans spotlighted throughout.
This is a phenomenally well-told story of just several of the many men and women who continue to suffer from this often ignored mental ailment.
