Summary (From the publisher):

World War I, 1916. A young Texan Travis Lee Stanhope, has entered the foul trenches of northern France. For this sharpshooter serving in an English unit, war is not hell, but home. Each night he ventures into the no-man's-land between his comrades and the German trenches. And waits. At dawn, he begins the methodical killing of enemy troops. Then he returns. His numbers are exemplary.

But Travis Lee is changing. His senses are ravaged by the unending scream of shells overhead, his mind numbed by too many rations of rum, his soul bled dry by the constant death around him. Yet in his dreams, something is alive—a world in which Travis is about to discover his true mission. And as an ordinary life touches the unknown, he will soon understand his role in the chaos of war, and the strange beauty of his destiny.
