Jess Wright’s debut novel will be published by SparkPress in April of 2022.

In a story of wartime trauma and postwar recovery, Bruce Duncan, a battlefield surgeon, struggles to rebuild his life in small-town Pennsylvania. Haunted by visions of his near-death experiences, Bruce soon finds that battlefields can appear where we least expect them. A chance encounter thrusts him into another clash—one with a friend, turned enemy. With a gripping narrative, moving from America, back to England under the siege of German rockets, and to the killing fields of Alsace, this novel plunges deep into the crucible of trauma and gives fresh vision for paths to redemption and healing.
