One Star Awake

(2009)
Return of the Unknown Soldier
A novel by

 
When a soldier makes it home... In a world once again torn by the madness of war, Miranda Lorelei Blake's recurring dreams have drawn her into an epic healing journey of almost biblical proportions. As her close friends rally to help her adapt to the psychic rescuer role that has been thrust upon her, she discovers that her guide in the dream world is the infamous Captain Hook. Yet without him, she cannot fi nd her way through the labyrinth. Miranda and her new love interest, Jim McBain, are not the only starcrossed lovers in this karmic convergence. Somehow, she has to help a critically wounded soldier fi nd the young Army Nurse who prayed for him in Vietnam. But how do you help a man who died in 1971? Perhaps she should swim back to the Beach in her mermaid form, and ask Albert Einstein... "Everyone who served in the bloodbath of Vietnam left part of his or her soul there, and many of these souls now wander the earth as restless spirits in search of peace, rest, and resolution.... In a tour de force of originality, power, creativity, understanding, and reverence for his subject, Steven Cain has crafted a mesmerizing novel about the experiences of nurses, surgeons, medics, and others in the killing fields of Vietnam and the decades following.... This is a tale about the transformative power of compassion, and the ability of love to operate across the presumed barriers of space and time.... Steven Cain understands the symmetry between chaos and order, and he has crafted a whopping novel in which the stars indeed dance." - Larry Dossey, MD, author, The Power of Premonitions "A riveting read. One Star Awake is like a magical mirror into my soul and my past... Written with poetic and moving sensitivity, this is a fascinating, sometimes disturbing, look into the lives and souls of men and women caught up in a war in a "faraway place" called Vietnam.... This is a compelling story...." - Janet (Small) Woods, American Red Cross SRAO, 1st division Vietnam 1966-67, Survivor of Vietnam and the American mental health system "Steven Cain brings the war full circle for those of us who lived it. One Star Awake is a love story of time and place, and people forever caught up in 'the war that never should have happened.' I will always be grateful for this compelling, wildly entertaining and fascinating book. Thank you from the bottom of my worn-out and still-treasured combat boots." - Lt Col Janis Nark, USAR (Ret.) Army Nurse Corps, Vietnam 1970-71
