Returning to Eden (Acts of Valor, Book 1)
Christian Romantic Suspense
Presumed Dead, Navy SEAL Returns Home to Fight an Unseen Enemy in the Christian Romantic Suspense Novel, Returning to Eden, by Rebecca Hartt
--Present Day, Virginia Beach, Virginia--
A dead man stands on her doorstep.
When the Navy wrote off her MIA husband as dead, Eden came to terms with being a widow. But now, her Navy SEAL husband is staring her in the face. Eden knows she should be over-the-moon, but she isn’t.
Diagnosed with PTSD and amnesia, Navy SEAL Jonah Mills has no recollection of their fractured marriage, no memory of Eden nor her fourteen-year-old daughter. Still, he feels a connection to both.
Unfit for active duty and assigned to therapy, Jonah knows he has work to do and relies on God, who sustained him during captivity, to heal his mind, body, and hopefully his family.
But as the memories lurking in his wife's haunted eyes and behind his daughter's uncertain smile begin to return to him, Jonah makes another discovery. There is treachery in the highest ranks of his Team, treachery that not only threatens him but places his new-found family in its crosshairs.
Publisher's Note: Fans of Ronie Kendig, Lynnette Eason, Dee Henderson as well as Marliss Melton, Irene Hannon, Susan May Warren and Colleen Coble, will enjoy this engrossing and heart-stirring series of redemption and rebirth.

Rebecca Hartt is the nom de plume for an award-winning, best-selling author of a different name who, compelled by her faith, decided to spin suspenseful military romance where God plays a vital role in character motivation and plot.
As a child, Rebecca lived in countries all over the world. She has been a military dependent for most of her life and knows first-hand the dedication and sacrifice required by those who serve.
Living near the military community of Virginia Beach, Rebecca is constantly reminded of the peril and uncertainty faced by U.S. Navy SEALs, many of whom testify to a personal and profound connection with their Creator.
Their loved ones, too, rely on God for strength and comfort. These men of courage and women of faith are the subjects of Rebecca Hartt’s enthusiastically received Acts of Valor romantic suspense series.
This book pulled me in and kept me engaged. It was so hard to put down at night. There were some parts of the book that could have been edited better, but it was minimal compared to the story itself.
Returning to Eden
A great read with a Christian message that God is real and loves us with an unmatched faithfulness. I appreciate and salute those who serve and defend our country and their families who sacrifice a normal family life to defend our freedoms. Would have given a 5 star rating but for Eden. She vacillated between trusting and not trusting God’s direction too much; appeared to be self-centered even as she could sense a positive change in Jonah’s behavior. Look forward to reading more from this author.
