And how does his family cope with his loss when he is killed there? Jeff Francis was a thirty-year-old doctoral candidate and student of Buddhism when he decided that joining the armed forces was the best way to make a difference in the world. In elegant, spare prose that captures both the hardness of war and the nuances of a grieving family, Melanie Murray - Captain Franciss aunt - uses the lens of his life and death to give Canadas war in Afghanistan the perceptive, literary treatment its soldiers, families and citizens deserve.From the Hardcover edition.
