Then, one fateful afternoon, he is transferred to Tinker AFB, Oklahoma. No one at Tinker knows about him and he vows to keep it that way until the tumor takes his life. Everything goes according to plan until he meets Athena Hunter. A beautiful young NCO, she rekindles the desire to live in him. Through an excruciatingly painful transcontinental flight, dangerous surgery, and the strict judicial system of the U.S. Air Force, Athena and Tony develop a connection that will become the stuff of legend.
Years later, Athena's sudden death comes as a crushing blow to him. Deeply depressed, Tony's family look for a way to help him recover. When his daughter, Lina, asks him about how he met her mother, Tony revisits old and forgotten memories.
Join Lina as she is enveloped in the magic that was her parent's love, commitment, and sacrifice, and enjoy author Robert F. Duwel's touching love story.
