LEGACY is the legacy of war inherited by those who remain.
For Peterjohn Carlyle Morrison, it is the terror of the burned staring from two black holes reflected in hospital windowpanes.
Mom is not apple pie but a clone devastated by her son's wounds; she needs as much care as the dying did in battle.
Mrs. Warren, his former elementary schoolteacher, offers sanctuary, but Peterjohn's ruined presence is testament to war's inexorable legacy: loss. Peterjohn's return is not that of Mrs. Warren's son, who was killed in a previous war.
Abandoned to his life, Peterjohn must choose between suicide or reconciliation with what is left of him.
Micaela Duncan takes him into her lovinghouse. Their relationship is too fragile to withstand the rape of a violated world.
Imprisonment is not an inevitable destination but arrival at liberation's gate. In the glass-walled cell of sixty men, Peterjohn Carlyle Morrison experiences the affirmation of the human spirit to transcend despair.
