About the Book

Pemberton pens a realistic military thriller combined with a poignant love story in Love Leaves No One Behind, the touching account of a U.S. Army Ranger and his healing love for a grieving woman. Threatened by a sadistic killer, the couple’s courage and strength intimately reveals the human spirit’s ability to triumph over insurmountable odds. “First-time author Claudia Pemberton has written a credible and interesting crime novel, set in the Alabama mountain background of a retiring Army Ranger and the lady he learns to love. As heroine Mikayla Mitchell leaves her hometown for a new job in California, she is devastated by the death of her beloved grandmother, Granny Mae. A chance set of circumstances leads her to meet Army Ranger Jesse Daulton, and it is their budding relationship, intertwined amongst the horror of a serial killer, that makes her book so interesting. Pemberton's deft writing combines violence - patriotism - sexual tension - love- and some old-fashioned Alabama backwoods wisdom in her well-written novel.” – Andrew Lubin, Reviewer, Midwest Book Review “You cannot just read this book and walk away untouched emotionally in some way.” – W.H. McDonald Jr., American Authors Assoc. & Military Writers Society of Am. “This novel corroborates that true and total compassion can derive only from significant physical and mental strength. To leave no one behind in dire situations requires an unequivocal love that expects nothing in return.” – Ranger Bill Spies, Executive Secretary, Worldwide Army Rangers, Inc.
