Secrets trail an American soldier from his Depression upbringing to the cold winter battles in the Ardennes Forest in the last months of World War II, and through the postwar decades, as he struggles to keep his family from being torn apart while keeping the truth buried close to his heart. Clay Brock, proprietor of Jake’s Tavern, has endured terrible losses throughout his life. In 1964, he is working to build a life for his wife and son, only to see everything he has worked for threatened by forces beyond his control. To keep his family from breaking apart, he must confront the very secret he has kept buried. For Clay, the war has never been over, and his foxhole buddy Jake Burnett never far from his thoughts. At two crucial points in his life, as a young father and later as an old man at the dawn of a new and unfamiliar century, his memories draw him back until he must confront them and speak the truth. But at what cost?

From the Author:

Unlike all my other books, this story simply poured out onto the page. I don't know why, but I know I felt slightly haunted writing it. The story of Clay Brock and Jake Burnett - what they endured and how they lived with it - is important for us all. Their war was cold, during that freezing winter in Northwest Europe, and the wars our servicemen and women suffer through today are blazing hot on another continent. But they are the same. Death, stress, incompetent leaders, the bond of battle, all these things do not change. Souvenir is a novel of memory, identity, longing and loss.

From the Inside Flap:

SOUVENIR is a book of secrets, a novel of memory, loss and identity. As Marcel Proust said:

The moments of the past do not remain still;
they retain in our memory the motion which drew them towards the future, towards a future which has itself become the past,
and draw us on in their train.

Clay Brock is trying to forget. Forget a harsh childhood during the Depression, horrific combat in the frigid Adrennes Forest, and a terrible personal loss. But he finds, as a young father in the 1960s and as an old man in a new and unfamiliar century, that those moments of the past have not remained still at all.
