In a split second, Mac and Sophie lose their young son in an accident and their lives change forever. But instead of grieving together, Mac chooses to leave his wife suffering in her grief here in the states and accepts a year long stint training police officers in Afghanistan. For himself, he feels the distractions will help heal his loss and guilt. But what about Sophie.

Flowers from Afghanistan follows this couple as they search to find peace in their loss and navigate their own relationship. Christ is important to Sophie but Mac has yet to learn the joy of trusting his life to Jesus. A strong Christian message and worldview in this book as well as a sweet story.
