Almost four decades have passed since Sam Haverman, an Army sergeant and ex-ballplayer then, climbed aboard a helicopter and flew away from the war in Vietnam. Since that time his shattered world has changed forever. Hes lost everything he onceMoreAlmost four decades have passed since Sam Haverman, an Army sergeant and ex-ballplayer then, climbed aboard a helicopter and flew away from the war in Vietnam. Since that time his shattered world has changed forever. Hes lost everything he once valued, his own American Dream turning into a nightmare that haunts his nights and days. At last, near the bottom of his existence, a single telephone phone call heralds the strange beginning of redemption.Sam turns away from those haunting images of war and begins a career as a successful but reclusive novelist. Eventually, however, his success must take him on another quest. Maybe an impossible quest to seek what he hopes will lead to some form of forgiveness for the one day, in 1968, that he will never forget. The one day that still haunts his memories of war and changed his life and the lives of others forever.Sam Havermans story is one that most vets might well identify with. Maybe a timeless tale that transcends the finality of war and its aftermath. For the vet and the non-vet alike, The Reclusive Mr. Haverman will give the reader insight into the hidden stories of war and the tribulations of those vets who seek only peace meaning in their lives. Its a timely story, not only for the 20th Century, but for our sometimes violent world as it is today. Wars, after all, are only separated by time and the younger faces that are thrown into each battle.
