If you enjoy stories about military families and the unique and costly struggles they face, this book is for you.

From the Book Jacket:
The “war on terror” has captured the lives of the U.S. military and their families for over 10 years. MULTIPLE EXPOSURE  tells the story of one family’s life of arrivals and departures due to war. Ellen Masters’ husband is repeatedly deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Ellen shares her struggles to connect with her husband and recounts her childhood in the woodlands where her vivid imagination develops as a coping mechanism to a traumatic childhood experience.
Ellen describes the cave that fascinates her throughout life and the brandy distillery that she inherits. The landscape is both inviting and haunting, intoxicating Ellen to stay in that place while her husband is assigned to an Army post in another state, and Ellen longs for their daughter to connect with him beyond photographs and Skype calls.
“I wanted to share the beauty of a southern setting,” Thornton says, “With the complexities of living in constant transition due to the consideration of life and the possibility of death on a daily basis.”
MULTIPLE EXPOSURE shares an intimate, ghostly portrait of the impact of war, and generations of military service, on a family.
