After their conflicted courtship, current NEW YORK TIMES reporter Dana Canedy and her army drill sergeant fiancé were in their 40s when they finally made a commitment to each other and their son, Jordan, was born. Seven months later, Jordan’s father was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq. Before he died, Charles had spent his evenings there writing over 200 pages of guidance and personal thoughts for his son, a journal that his heartbroken sweetheart used as a foundation for this moving tribute. The smooth-sounding Dion Graham reads the journal excerpts while Canedy herself sensitively and authentically interprets her own exceptional writing. The author's grief and lingering conflicts about her partner create the unmistakable tension of unfinished business, and a reminder that all deaths at war are devastating and personal.
