About Jim Bennett’s book….

When a helicopter chartered by an anti-seal hunting group buzzes his boat off the coast of Newfoundland, Billy Wheeler downs it with a single shot, killing everyone on board. As his crewmates reel from shock, one thing becomes irrevocably clear: Billy is deep in the throes of PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder).
What emerges is a gripping portrait of one soldier’s battle with PTSD, a region’s struggles with the trauma that follows the loss of its central industry and way of life, and a story of family, loyalty and finding love when you least expect it.
