THE POW CAMP



                     Hello everyone and welcome to Six Sentence Sunday. Thank you for stopping by. 


                                                              

                                        
                                                                    
Last week you saw Beth Ann say goodbye to her old life. She still has a hard time believing Kaylob is dead but it’s been over a year and she needs to move on. In the meantime is Kaylob is alive and in one of the worst kinds of POW camps. In book one you will experience the hell Kaylob went through at the hands of the Viet Cong. Will he survive when so many are dying around him? He hears her voice and even sees her standing in the jungle calling out to him. Is his mind slipping? Or is it possible for two people to be so connected, they feel, hear, and see each other from the other side of the world?

                                                    

                                                                                 The year 1972
Kaylob’s prison was a dank, dark hovel, matching his present mood. The air reeked of goddamn fresh rotting death and smoke from burning bodies. His skeletal remains trudged outside down the humid, crawling bamboo halls. As he stepped out into the open air, he flinched at the sunshine.  He hated the sight of the bodies that littered on both sides of the trail. Some of the guys had been buried with just their heads exposed, trying to eat their maggot-ridden food. It made him so goddamn mad. Chris, one of Kaylob’s fellow prisoners, had told him he’d been there for over a year.

    1. Thank you so much Elyzabeth. It was horrible what the guys went through that went to war but beyond what we think we know in those POW camps. I did some interviews that had me in tears at the end.
