The Bench

The Bench by Theresa Sederholt 
Family Life, War Fiction

I was living the American dream. I had a beautiful wife and a career that I loved.
Then everything I knew and loved was lost to me forever.
With nothing left, I set out to lose myself in New York City. What I found, instead, was a best friend who would change my life forever.
This is the story of how one person’s kindness set me on a journey that would change my life forever.
- Mick

This is not a romance; It is one man’s journey to find his way back to himself.

5 out of 5 fairies

The Bench is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. It's a really powerful story. Although its fiction it really captures the struggle of dealing with PTSD. Even when you've lost everything, one person can help you turn things around. A hope inspiring story that doesn't shy away from the darker side of struggling with PTSD, following Mick's journey had me both smiling and crying. Not for everyone, but a great read.

About the Author: Theresa Sederholt was born and raised in Brooklyn New York. She is a graduate of Campbell University in North Carolina, with a degree in Criminal Justice. Theresa now resides in the mountains of North Carolina with her husband - a professional chef - and her two adorable dogs.
Experiencing life first-hand is what she does best. Believing she can do anything has put her in some crazy situations; babysitting a pig farm and cutting the top off a mini truck. Her list is A-to-Z and full of endless possibilities.

As a flight attendant (there’s that list again), she would make up stories about all of her passengers as they came and went. It seemed only natural to put pen-to-paper and see where these characters would take her.
A story that started as a single woman having a cup of coffee - while trying to make it through life - quickly grew into a complex world of romance, mystery, and murder. The Unraveled Trilogy was born.
This trilogy may have had humble beginnings, but in 2015 it gained prestigious recognition. Shattered Lies (book three in the trilogy) won Inks & Scratches Book Of The Year along with Cover Of The Year. BTS (Book Trailer Showcase) Book Reviews gave Shattered Lies The Red Carpet Book Award for Honorable Mention Rising Star Readers Choice. Theresa can humbly claim herself as an Award Winning Author.

Theresa’s beliefs are pretty simple:
There isn’t a luggage rack on the hearse.
Give a girl some Nutella and an espresso, then watch her change the world.
