-- The Pathway Home
This is a war story. Well, not really a war story but a story about the effects of war. Men who would never have thought of taking another human life received training to kill and then were thrown into a war zone. Kill or be killed? Although fiction, this story was driven by a very real event during the Vietnam War.
What happened to those peace loving men and women who came back home mentally changed and tried to fit back into their regular life again? What happened to the soldiers who returned so disfigured, so physically destroyed they would never fit into normal life? This is a story, set in a period between 1962 and 1980, of one such soldier.
Toi Gheh lay at death's door on a Vietnamese jungle pathway when found by a humble oriental woman and a little girl who nursed him back to health with compassion and Godly love. But neither could do anything about his disfigured body and they couldn't do anything about his amnesia, his inability to remember anything of his past except that of his faith in God.
Through a number of events and after a decade in the jungles of Cambodia, Toi Gheh finds his way back to the United States and begins the search for his identity with the help of Mark Nelson, a soldier injured at the tail end of the war activity in Vietnam. Toi and Mark begin a writing partnership, utilizing information from the investigation into Toi's past. In his condition of total disfigurement, he is not sure he wants to find a family, but he would like to have a real name again.
His faith has sustained him throughout the years since his accident, and though Mark also claims a belief in Christ, Toi has doubts about his full commitment by statements Mark has made.
Toi's goal is for Mark to surrender to God's plan. Mark's goal is to become a great writing success and find out Toi's real name. Toi and Mark have found what appears to be real evidence of Toi's identity when suddenly the whole investigation takes an unexpected turn.
