He really wants to see his grandfather, Pat Henry, and Annie, the little Thai girl he rescued from the streets of Bangkok. Sending Annie home to Pat saved the innocent child from a life of prostitution in her native land and is one of Jack’s proudest moments. For a man so young, he has a good appreciation of the value of touching home, getting back a sense of real life as opposed to battle life. He loves the large farm where he grew up, the open fields, his private river island, and the quiet peace he feels all around him.At home, he reconnects with an old high school friend, but on the first date realizes she has changed a lot in five years, mostly not for the better. At the barn one morning while grooming his horse, he meets the county’s new veterinarian. Dr. Sue Gore is not only a skilled and caring doctor, she is a gorgeous, engaging woman. From their first date, Jack realizes he likes her very much and has no interest in other women, despite the attention he is shown by young women of his hometown.
