Description - A Journal for Jordan: A Story of Love and Honour FTI by Dana Canedy

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

'A hauntingly beautiful account of a family fractured by war ... filled with vivid and heartbreaking details.' New York Times Book Review

'Full of wonderful treasures offered by a unique and spirited father ... written with serene grace: part memoir, part love story, all heart.' James McBride, author of The Color of Water

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In 2005, First Sergeant Charles Monroe King began to write a journal for the child he and his partner Dana were expecting in case he didn't make it home from the war. He was killed in October 2006 on an isolated road near Baghdad. Their son, Jordan, was just seven months old. In his journal, Charles offers Jordan life lessons on everything from how to withstand disappointment to how to behave on a date.

Inspired by Charles' example, Dana was determined to preserve his memory for their son. A Journal for Jordan is a mother's fiercely honest letter to her child about the parent he lost before he could even speak. It's also a father's advice and prayers for the son he will never know.

This is also the story of Dana and Charles - two seemingly mismatched souls who loved each other deeply and lost each other too soon. A Journal for Jordan is a tender introduction, a loving goodbye, a reporter's inquiry into her soldier's life, and a heartrending reminder of the human cost of war.
